Radford University is now recognized as a CompTIA Authorized Academy Partner! This opens up certain benefits for RU students. One of the primary benefits for students is a substantial discount on certification exam fees, which are usually around 50%.
We also have our first Radford student, Matt Lyles, that has taken and passed the Network + Certification today. The regular cost of this exam is $285; Matt paid only $141 dollars for the exam just for being a Radford student, and saved $144!
