Application Requirements

Radford University offers an incomparable opportunity to receive a first-rate education and to be part of a vibrant community of higher learning.

Radford University takes a holistic approach to reviewing applications and will never impose cut-off dates or offer guarantees of acceptance arbitrarily.

Radford University views everything that an applicant submits in an effort to get to know that individual as well as possible. Applications are reviewed by members of the Admissions committee in an effort to select potential Radford University students who we believe would not only find academic success at Radford, but also become positive contributors to our community.

To this end, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions reviews academic transcripts, the strengths of an applicant’s high school curriculum, standardized testing, and all other materials submitted.

Please note: Active Duty Service Members (including Guard and Reserve) must contact their Education Service Officer (ESO) or Education Counselor within their branch of service prior to enrolling in any college or university.
