Undergraduate Catalog

This catalog provides official information on undergraduate academic programs and policies in effect at the university for the academic year 2021-2022. 

What this catalog means for you

The Roosevelt University Academic Catalog (“Catalog”) provides information regarding current educational programs, class offerings, academic regulations, and University policies and procedures. This Catalog is revised annually and published online for each academic year.  

Graduation requirements are typically determined by the year you entered Roosevelt University.  You may refer to the Catalog for your entering year to determine your program requirements.  Former degree-seeking students who have been away for three years or more must comply with degree requirements in the current catalog.

The requirements presented in the catalog also will be reflected in the Degree Works system, which students, faculty, and advisors use to track students' progress in their academic programs. All degree-seeking students entering Roosevelt as of fall 2014 and later will have a Degree Works audit that details the exact requirements that must be met for graduation.

The University expressly reserves the right to change without prior notice the contents of this Catalog, including changing, phasing out, or discontinuing any policy or program. Such changes may include changes to policies, course, scholastic and admission requirements, tuition and fees, payment plans, examinations, room and board rates, and academic requirements for graduation. If such changes are made, the University will communicate those changes via University email or other widely used media.

Notwithstanding the University’s efforts to communicate changes, each student is expected to make a reasonable effort to familiarize themselves with the Catalog and any subsequent revisions, including program and degree requirements pertaining to their majors and general regulations governing academic work and progress. Students are strongly encouraged to seek information and assistance from appropriate University personnel should they have any questions regarding the Catalog or any of their rights and obligations as a student.

How to use this catalog

  • Under the Programs A-Z tab are the current requirements for all majors, minors, and concentrations offered to undergraduate students.
  • Under the Courses A-Z tab is current course information, including the number of credit hours and prerequisites.  The catalog lists all courses; not all are offered each term. Check the Coursefinder to determine offerings for a specific term.
  • Under the Academic Policies tab is information on university-wide policies and links to important procedures such as registering for classes and applying to graduate.  The five colleges at Roosevelt offering undergraduate programs also have policies of their own, meaning that it's important to consult those entries in the catalog as well.
