Radford University Board of Visitors to Consider 2023-2024 Tuition and Fees

Radford University Board of Visitors will consider tuition and mandatory fee rates for the 2023-2024 academic year at a special-called meeting on April 28, 2023.

In preparation for the meeting, the Board of Visitors will host a budget overview and public comment session on April 14, 2023 from 1 - 2:30 p.m. in the Mary Ann Jennings Hovis Memorial Board Room in Martin Hall at 915 East Main Street, Radford.

During this session, Vice President for Finance and Administration Rob Hoover will present a financial overview and fiscal year 2024 considerations. Following the presentation, the Board of Visitors will receive public comment on the proposed tuition and fee rates.

The Board of Visitors will consider an increase between 0 and 4 percent in both tuition and mandatory fees for undergraduate students. Radford University has maintained a strong commitment to the Highlander educational experience remaining accessible and affordable for students and their families now and into the future. Radford University remains one of the lowest total cost public institutions in Virginia. Several factors will determine the final increase, including: the anticipated budget for the Commonwealth of Virginia and specific allocations to support the University, as well as student service initiatives contained in the University’s Strategic Plan, rising operational costs and any state-mandated compensation increases.
