Cost & Financial Aid

Non Degree Seeking Students

As a general rule, those who are admitted as a non-degree seeking student are not eligible for financial aid.  Federal regulations do require a student to be working towards a degree to be eligible to receive financial aid funds. There are two exceptions to this regulation, if you are enrolled in an initial required teacher certification program for the state in which you will teach, or if you are taking prerequisite coursework required for admission to a degree program at Radford University. If you think you may qualify for financial aid under one of these circumstances, please submit the recommended paperwork to the financial aid office for review.
