Center for Accessibility Services

The Center for Accessibility Services (CAS) is a full-service office prepared to meet the needs of students with diverse disabilities. As a student with a documented disability, the CAS can provide assistance for physical, learning, psychiatric, medical, and temporary disabilities such as illness, surgery or broken bones.

Academic Advising

An Academic Advisor is likely to be one of the first people that you meet, as a new Radford University Student. Depending on your major, you may be advised primarily in an advising center, or you may have a faculty advisor. In either case, your academic advisor can assist you in choosing the correct classes to achieve your academic goals.

Student Support Services

Radford University Student Support Services "SUCCESS" Program is a federally funded TRIO program designed to assist eligible students (i.e. first-generation college, low income, documented disabilities) to succeed at Radford University and obtain a baccalaureate degree. The SUCCESS staff offer an array of support services to enhance academic skills, develop leadership potential, assist with financial aid options, encourage graduate school education and support cultural enrichment activities in a comfortable, relaxed environment.

New Student Programs

The Office of New Student Programs (NSP) coordinates orientation and student success programs with the goal of ensuring that as a new student, you will have every opportunity to become an integral part of the University community.

University 100

"UNIV 100" is a first semester course that actively supports new students in making a successful transition to Radford University.
