Thank you for your interest in Illinois Institute of Technology’s Pre-College Summer Programs. We understand that this is a stressful time due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you have additional questions that are not addressed in this FAQ, please contact us at precollege@iit.edu.

Are you offering any in-person summer programs?

In Summer 2022, Illinois Tech will offer a number of in-person Pre-College Summer Programs in day/commuter or residential formats. We are closely monitoring local and university health and safety guidelines surrounding COVID-19. While on campus, all students and instructors will be required to wear a face covering that fits snugly against the sides of their face, does not have gaps, and fully covers their nose and mouth. Please review the CDC guidelines for selecting a mask that best protects you and others around you. Extra masks and hand sanitizer will be available in the program spaces.

Are COVID-19 vaccines required for summer program participation?

Illinois Tech requires all students, faculty, and staff to be vaccinated (including booster) against COVID-19. To align with university policies, all summer program students participating in-person will need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Summer program participants will be asked to show proof of vaccination when checking in for their first day of the program. Students must have completed their vaccine sequence and booster dose two weeks prior to the start of their program. If students are not able to show proof of vaccination at check-in, they will be unable to continue in the program, and the program fees will not be refunded. 

Will you offer online summer programs?

Illinois Tech is offering a variety of online summer programs in June and July. Please view our online summer programs for more information.
