About the New River Community College/Radford University Bridge Program
The New River Community College (NRCC) and Radford University (RU) Bridge Program, NRB2RU, is a rigorous and supportive residential program that provides an opportunity for participants to enhance their academic skills before fully enrolling at Radford University.
NRB2RU is a partnership between NRCC and Radford University. The program provides support for the transition from high school to college and encourages engaged learning in active communities of students, faculty and staff.
To be eligible, students must first submit an admission application to Radford University. Freshman applicants who do not meet Radford University’s standard admission criteria may be selected to participate in the program. An invitation to participate in the Bridge Program is based on the applicant’s high school GPA and test scores – SAT or ACT. Participating students will take courses at NRCC (Dublin campus) for their first year, while living, dining and engaging in a robust student life at Radford University. Transportation between the two campuses, which are about ten miles apart, is provided throughout each weekday.
