Cost of Attendance
Specific tuition and fee rates can be found on the Student Accounting Office's web site every year. The most accurate bill can always be found on TouchNet for an enrolled student.
The net price calculator can be used for domestic, full time, undergraduate applicants who intend to live on campus. This tool allows students to anticipate what they may receive in institutional and federal aid if they become a student at IIT.
