Welcome to the Office of Undergraduate Academic Advising! We look forward to working with you as you start your Undergraduate journey. Academic Advising is available at our Chicago and Schaumburg campuses for new and continuing undergraduate students. We are here to help you be successful at Roosevelt. Follow us on Facebook.
At Roosevelt University, academic advising is an active partnership between student and advisor, with the goal to develop, clarify, and evaluate a student’s educational plans and align them with the student’s goals.
Students in the Chicago College of Performing Arts, the College of Education, some majors in the College of Health, Science and Pharmacy, and the Hospitality Management programs should contact those areas directly for advising appointments. Graduate students will work with their academic department directly. Please refer to Graduate Student Resources for more information.
