The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania then granted the school permission to award associate degrees, and the school became Robert Morris Junior College. The school's main campus moved to suburban Moon Township during the 1964-65 academic year. Before 2002, the university used the name "Robert Morris College". However, it is not affiliated with Robert Morris College in Chicago, Illinois. In 2009, that school was renamed "Robert Morris University Illinois."
