RADFORD, Va. (WFXR) – On Tuesday, Radford University announced there would be no increase in tuition for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Undergraduate students studying on-campus, as well as the Radford Higher Education Center and the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center in Abingdon, will have the same tuition from the 2019-2020 school year to be carried over into the 2020-2021 academic year.

For in-state, undergraduate students studying at Radford University Carilion (RUC) in Roanoke will see a 10-percent decrease in tuition and fees for the next school year.

“This will be the second year in which a tuition and fee reduction has been implemented, resulting in approximately a 20-percent decrease when compared to the cost of Jefferson College of Health Sciences prior to the merger with Radford University.”

Brian O. Hemphill, Ph.D., Radford University President

There will also be a competitive pricing structure implemented for RUC’s fully online programs to expand the workforce pipeline across high-demand areas for health sciences professionals.

“On behalf of the Board, I am so pleased with the incredible efforts being made to maintain a high-quality and low-cost learning, as well as, [a] safe living environment for all Radford University students.”

Robert A. Archer, Board of Visitors Rector, Radford University
