City Colleges of Chicago (CCC) students who desire a four-year degree will be able to make a seamless transition and take advantage of scholarship opportunities through a new Dual Degree Program with Roosevelt University.

Committed to providing a way for more students to earn bachelor’s degrees close to home, the institutions are rolling out a program that will make it easy for students to obtain associate and bachelor’s degrees.

Under the arrangement, Roosevelt will guarantee admission to all Dual Degree students who complete associate degrees at one of the seven City Colleges in three years’ time with at least a 2.5 grade point average.

“Our goal is to make it easy for Dual Degree students to transfer to Roosevelt,” said Erica Poremba, executive director of community colleges and academic relations at Roosevelt.

“That way they won’t have to waste a lot of time on administrative details, enabling them to hit the ground running with their studies,” she said.

Dual Degree students would be eligible for bachelor’s degree programs offered by Roosevelt’s College of Arts and Sciences, the Heller College of Business and the College of Education.

As transfer students, they also are eligible to apply for several Merit Scholarship opportunities, Phi Theta Kappa or Preferred Partner Dual Degree Program awards, as well as be considered for Roosevelt’s special endowed scholarships.

“I want to thank Roosevelt for working with us to develop a dual degree program that will make transfer simpler for City Colleges students,” said Chancellor Juan Salgado. “The agreement offers students a clear goal to work toward and the certainty that their efforts will pay off.”

In addition to this new opportunity, qualified Star Scholars at City Colleges are eligible for additional $9,000-$11,000 transfer scholarships at Roosevelt, which can be combined with other scholarships.
