Since the smallest leptonic mixing angle theta_{13} has been measured to be relatively large, it is quite promising to constrain or determine the leptonic Dirac CP-violating phase delta in future neutrino oscillation experiments. Given some typical values of delta = pi/2, pi, and 3pi/2 at the low-energy scale, as well as current experimental results of the other neutrino parameters, we perform a systematic study of the radiative corrections to delta by using the one-loop renormalization group equations in the minimal supersymmetric standard model and the universal extra-dimensional model. It turns out that delta is rather stable against radiative corrections in both models, except for the minimal supersymmetric standard model with a very large value of tan beta. Both cases of Majorana and Dirac neutrinos are discussed. In addition, we use the preliminary indication of delta = (1.08^{+0.28}_{-0.31}) pi or delta = (1.67^{+0.37}_{-0.77}) pi from the latest global-fit analyses of data from neutrino oscillation experiments to illustrate how it will be modified by radiative corrections.
