The admissions policy of Radford College is non-selective: offers of places do not depend on criteria such as academic, sporting or co-curricular performance, where a student lives, their current school, their religion, or community involvement.
The College offers equal number of places to boys and girls at its main entry points and endeavours to maintain a gender balance in all year levels. To this end, the College maintains separate girls' and boys' waiting lists.
The overarching admissions policy is that enrolment offers are based on the interval between date of birth and date of registration, by gender.
Priority is given to children of permanent staff, siblings, children of members of the Collegians Association (former students who are a member of the Radford Collegians' Association) and children of practising Anglican clergy.
Parents wishing to enrol their children at Radford College must be prepared to support the policies, rules and discipline of the College.
Radford College does not have the necessary registration to enrol international/overseas students. A child needs Australian citizenship or a permanent residency visa in order to attend Radford College.
