Why wait? Get college–and real-world—experience now.
Just as there’s no other university like Illinois Tech, no other program in the country gives middle and high school students college exposure and real-world experiences like Illinois Tech’s Elevate College Prep program.
Through our one-of-a-kind program, you’ll take part in much more than pre-college courses. You’ll broaden your knowledge and skills through an array of academic offerings, hands-on experiences, and personalized mentorship—and get a firsthand look at how the guaranteed opportunities in our unique Elevate program empower current Illinois Tech undergraduates to stand out. Our college programs offer you:
- Virtual internships and competitions that will teach you the hands-on, twenty-first century skills that employers seek—and that will help you build your resume and boost your college applications
- Mentorship from Illinois Tech instructors
- Exciting classes in cool topics taught at Chicago’s only tech university, including computational science, industrial psychology, introduction to human biology, and more
- Plus: certificates for your coursework!
But that’s not all you’ll experience. When you participate in one of our residential summer programs, you’ll get to live in one of our residence halls while exploring our beautiful campus and the amazing city of Chicago.
