Undergraduate Non-Degree Seeking Students

Undergraduate Non-Degree Seeking Applications are processed by the Registrar's Office.

The admission application (PDF) can be printed, filled out, and submitted to the Registrar's Office with a $50 non-refundable application fee in the form of a check or money order payable to Radford University.  Applications and all required admission materials are due by the first day of the term in which enrollment is being requested.  More specific information about requirements and deadlines are outlined below.  The in-state tuition application incorporated into the undergraduate non-degree seeking application is required in order to be considered for in-state tuition rates.

  

What is a special non-degree seeking student?

  • Special non-degree seeking students are those students not matriculated in a degree program at Radford University.
  • Undergraduate Special Non-Degree Seeking students may attempt up to 24 semester hours of coursework. 
  • A minimum grade point average of 2.0 is required to continue as an Undergraduate Special Non-Degree Seeking student.
  • If at any time an Undergraduate Special Non-Degree Seeking student wants to switch to a degree seeking student status, they have to apply through the Undergraduate Admissions Office.  Admission as a non-degree seeking student does not guarantee later admission as a degree seeking student.
  • Hours earned while in a non-degree seeking status may or may not apply to a major program, depending on the degree requirements.  Degree requirements are listed in our catalogs

Upon admission, letters will be sent explaining when non-degree seeking students are eligible to register for classes (non-degree seeking students are restricted from registering for classes until all degree-seeking students have had an opportunity to register for classes for a given term).

Please note special non-degree seeking students taking classes with their approved Employee Tuition Waiver or Senior Citizen Tuition Waiver may not register until the first day of classes.
