Student-At-Large Status

Undergraduate Level

Students who are not actively seeking a degree at Roosevelt University but would like to enroll in academic programs may register for undergraduate courses as students at-large. Financial aid, including loans, is not available to students in this category. There is no application fee.

A grade point average of 2.00 (C) or better is required during each semester of at-large enrollment. At-large students who fail to maintain a grade point average of 2.00 or better will not be eligible to return to Roosevelt University as a student at-large. A maximum of 15 semester hours of credit earned in student at-large status may be applied toward a bachelor's degree at Roosevelt University. Course work completed under student at-large status may or may not be applicable to a degree program and is subject to the approval by the appropriate advisor and/or department chair.

Students at-large register in person or by fax. The Undergraduate Student at-Large Registration Form must be submitted to the Registrar Office on either campus.  The registration online is not available for non-degree seeking students.

Graduate Level

Graduate students who want to take a course as a student-at-large must be admitted as graduate students at-large.
