Pay My Bill

More in this section...

Students must make appropriate payment arrangements or pay their tuition and fees in full by the dates below.

Students are required to pay all term charges by the due date for each term (or at the time of registration thereafter) unless they are enrolled in a payment plan. In accordance with acceptance of the Registration Agreement, payment arrangements must be made for the complete tuition and fees by the due date. Students who have not made payment arrangements are not financially cleared and are at risk of having their enrolled courses, room and board assignments cancelled for the upcoming semester.

Roosevelt University offers a variety of ways for you to be financial cleared. Learn more about these options below.

Monthly Payment Plan - Fall Payment Plan Now Available

Roosevelt's fall payment plan is now available. This plan divides a student’s institutional expenses into five monthly payments – June 30, July 30, August 30, September 30, and October 30. Students wishing to enroll in a payment plan may do so via the TouchNet Gateway on RU Access for $45.

Payments made directly from a check or savings account are free.  Payments made by a credit card or debit card will be assessed a 2.85% convenience fee.  All payments are automatically deducted when it’s due, so there is no need to worry about missing a payment date.

For help enrolling in the payment plan, please review this step-by-step guide.

If you have questions regarding Roosevelt’s payment plans, please contact Financial Aid Services at or 866-421-0935.

Financial Aid

Students must file a Free Application for Federal Student aid (FAFSA®) to ensure consideration for federal financial aid. Award and program eligibility are determined individually for each student based upon numerous factors including the program of study and the level of enrollment (full-time, part-time, etc.). Learn more about funding your education through student loans and grants.

Students who are receiving financial aid may still enroll in the monthly payment plan to pay off any balance that financial aid does not cover.

Use of Federal Financial Aid to Pay Prior Year Charges

Federal financial aid awarded for the current academic year cannot be used to pay for prior year outstanding balances (balances incurred during or prior to Summer). This prior balance must be paid by personal payment regardless of the amount of aid anticipated or disbursed for the first enrollment period of the academic year before that enrollment can be confirmed.

Tuition Reimbursement Plan (ROOSTR)

The tuition reimbursement plan allows eligible students to defer tuition payments up to three weeks after grades are available for the term. To participate in the Tuition Reimbursement Plan, the student’s employer must cover at least 75% of the total cost of tuition. There is a $30.00 deferment fee to participate in this program.

Each term a student must:

  • Submit a copy of employer’s tuition reimbursement policy
  • Submit a letter from the employer to confirm the student’s reimbursement eligibility and indicate the percentage of tuition covered (listing any applicable restrictions) and complete a promissory note
  • Update eligibility each term of enrollment
  • Pay any portion of the tuition and fees (generally at least $180) not covered by the employer by the payment due date or upon registration thereafter.
  • A late fee of $100 will be assessed to the student’s account if complete payment is not received by the monthly payment due date. Please verify the ROOSTR due date with Office of the Bursar.
Third Party (Direct Bill)

The Third Party Payment Plan allows a student to attend the University under an employee benefit plan or other sponsored plan. The student’s employer or sponsor pays the cost of tuition and fees directly to the University. To participate in this plan, students must:

  • Submit a payment voucher from the employer/agency or a letter certifying the student’s eligibility for the benefits and the stated value of the benefits;
  • Update eligibility each term of enrollment
  • Pay any portion of the tuition and fees not covered by the employer or agency by the payment due date, or upon registration thereafter.
International students

Once you have registered for classes, you must pay your tuition and fees to Roosevelt University. If you are living in Roosevelt University Residence Halls you must also pay those fees. F1 and J1 students are required to have U.S. Health Insurance; this information will also be included on your bill.

Tuition and fees are due each semester.

Full Payment Options

  • In addition to the options listed above, you may pay by an INTERNATIONAL WIRE TRANSFER through flywire. You may send funds to Roosevelt from a foreign bank account.  You may track the payment through this site.

Graduation Fiscal Policy

As a student, you are responsible for all tuition, fees, room and board, and other associated costs assessed as a result of registration and/or receipt of services from Roosevelt University. Roosevelt University will withhold all diplomas, transcripts, and other official statements (such as Letters of Completion) from students with any outstanding debts to the University. Read the full Graduation Fiscal Policy.

Financial Holds

Financial holds are placed on the student accounts when students have an outstanding past due balance. These holds prevent students from gaining transcripts, diplomas and registering for classes. Account holds that restrict registration, transcripts and diplomas are automatically removed by the system every hour. If you paid your balance in full and would like your hold removed immediately, please contact (312) 341-6935 for assistance. Collection holds are placed on the student accounts if the account has been placed with an outside collection agency. These holds will prevent you from making a payment on your account. For additional information regarding this hold, please call our Roosevelt Collections team at (312) 341-3700.
