Welcome to the #HighlanderFamily

Confirm Your Enrollment

The deadline to deposit is June 1 for freshman and transfer students.

For students prepared to make a commitment to attend Radford this fall, we encourage you to confirm your enrollment as soon as possible so you have priority access to register for classes, secure housing, start your payment plan and other next steps.

Confirm your enrollment by completing the Enrollment Confirmation Form and paying a $200 deposit in your Highlander Portal (check out this step-by-step video on how to complete your Enrollment Confirmation Form).

After June 1, Radford will allow non-refundable late deposits as space is available with the understanding that course avilability, housing preferences and payment plans will be limited. 

New freshmen and transfer students who are unable to pay the enrollment deposit may request to waive the required enrollment deposit by completing a Waiver Request form. The Office of Admissions will review each waiver request and respond within 3 business days.
