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 has partnered with ECSI, a billing service, in order to provide continued customer service to assist you in resolving your past due account balance. If your balance has not been satisfied by the due date, you will be contacted by ECSI in an effort to help you resolve the balance and prevent your account from being placed with an outside collection agency.
Roosevelt University offers a variety of ways for you to be financially cleared. Learn more about these options below.

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.
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.
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 $45.00 deferment fee to participate in this program.

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:
All third party payments are due by the end of the term. Please monitor your account in RU Access to make sure the vendor has remitted payment for your bill. It is your responsibility to follow up with the vendor to ensure payment is received and the account remains in good standing.
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.
Roosevelt University has partnered with PayMyTuition for international tuition payments. With PayMyTuition, you can pay your tuition payments from any bank, in any country in any currency at better than bank exchange rates. PayMyTuition is fast, simple, and cost effective.

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 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. 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.
