UPDATE: February 1, 2024

All higher education insitutions were notified on Tuesday, January 30th that the Department of Education would not start to send FAFSA data to institutions until mid-March 2024.  This announcement will delay all financial aid processing for the 2024-2025 academic year.  We will continue to post updates to our page as we learn more.

We do encourage families to continue to file the 2024-2025 FAFSA as soon as possible so that it will be in the queue to be sent to Radford when data is available.

UPDATE: January 22, 2024

Radford University was notified on Friday, January 19th that software required to process 2024-2025 FAFSA data has been delayed and we will receive these critical updates approximately February 15, 2024.  At this time, we anticipate that we will begin receiving and processing 2024-2025 FAFSA data no earlier than March 1, 2024.  We will begin communicating with students and families via email, once we receive and begin to process all submitted FAFSA information.

The 2024-2025 FAFSA opened with a soft launch on December 30, 2023.    Some students are experiencing issues submitting the FAFSA.  If you experience a challenge with completing your FAFSA, please submit a ticket to Federal Student Aid (FSA)
