Special Student (non-certificate nor degree seeking) must apply for admission each semester you will attend. Visit http://www.newriver.edu. Payment arrangements may be made with the Student Accounts/Business Office on your local campus. Special students are not eligible for state or federal financial aid since they are not seeking a Certificate of Applied Science (CAS) or a degree and therefore are self-pay.
