SUPPORTING MATERIALS – Carefully read the instruction guide to insure completeness of your application packet. If mailing your application, Graduate Admissions prefers each applicant submit supporting credentials in the same envelope as the application. If submitting application online, complete the application online and submit supporting credentials in the envelope upon receiving all of the necessary materials.
PLEASE TYPE OR PRINT CLEARLY - On applications mailed in, please use black or blue ink and avoid using staples.
TEST SCORES – Official scores (TOEFL, GRE, GMAT, MAT) must be submitted directly to the Graduate College from the testing services. Unofficial test scores and transcripts will not be accepted. With the exception of the TOEFL for international students, Non-Degree Students are not required to submit test scores.
RECOMMENDATION FORMS – For degree seeking students, at least two RU recommendation forms are required. Some programs require three. If recommendations are sent back to you, do not open them. They must remain in their original sealed envelopes, with signature of the reference across the seal, to be submitted with your application. Recommendations may be forwarded directly to Graduate Admissions. If you apply for admission to the Corporate and Professional Communication program, three personal letters of reference should be submitted rather than recommendation forms. Non- Degree and Post-Baccalaureate Certificate applicants are generally not required to submit letters of recommendations. Initial Teaching Licensure students must submit three recommendations. Please type or print clearly supporting materials.
TRANSCRIPTS – Request official transcripts from the registrar of each college or university you’ve attended. For applicants who are graduates of Radford University, only transcripts for post-baccalaureate course work taken elsewhere need to be sent. If the official transcripts are sent to you do not open them. They must remain in their original sealed envelope from the registrar to be submitted with your application.
