How Much Does It Cost To Attend

The Financial Aid Office assists students in applying for and receiving financial aid from a variety of sources. These funds are then used to apply toward educational expenses for the academic year.

The Student Accounts Office is responsible for computing your Roosevelt University charges based upon your enrollment and living arrangements. Student Accounts will issue a bill each semester based on your charges. Financial Aid will apply to these charges first and then Student Accounts will collect any remaining amounts owed to the University. Please contact the Student Accounts Office directly for further billing and payment information.

RUACCESS serves as a student portal, students can navigate there as a self help center for managing their student services. All admitted students receive a Roosevelt University PIN so that they may be able to sign on to RU ACCESS. Once logged into Roosevelt University ACCESS, you can view all pertinent student data accessing your Financial Aid by academic year, as well as billing statements per semester.

Financial Aid calculates student eligibility using a cost of attendance which includes  tuition and fees, estimated costs for living expenses, estimated room and board charges, and any other education related expenses.  Make sure you familiarize yourself with our Financial Aid Application Guide for more information on any of these estimated costs.

As always, our office is available to help you navigate through any aspect of the financial aid process.
