With campuses in the Chicago Loop and northwest suburban Schaumburg, Roosevelt offers 75 undergraduate and 15 graduate and doctoral programs across five colleges and online, including in arts and sciences, business, performing arts, education and pharmacy.

Roosevelt has submitted an application to the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) to make Robert Morris University Illinois a part of Roosevelt University. This application is subject to the approval of the HLC and the governing boards of Roosevelt and Robert Morris. HLC will need to take steps to review the proposal and will likely reach a decision in early 2020. Visit Building a Stronger University for more information.
