Scholarships and Financial Aid for International Students

Roosevelt University offers numerous scholarship opportunities, some of which are available to international students. The majority of scholarships are based on academic merit, not on financial need.  International students are considered to be non-immigrants and non-permanent residents; therefore, international students are not eligible for U.S. federal or state financial aid. 

Bachelor's Degree

First year students (freshmen) should take the ACT or SAT exam to qualify for scholarships.  The Pre-Pharmacy program has a maximum two year scholarship/award.

All students who apply, audition, and are accepted to the Chicago College of Performing Arts (CCPA) are considered for talent-based CCPA Scholarships.  Master's students may also apply for Graduate Music Assistantships.  Students who apply to CCPA are not eligible for academic scholarships through Roosevelt University.
