Partnerships with Illinois Community Colleges

Illinois Tech has a longstanding history of enrolling students from dozens of community colleges throughout Illinois—many of whom have gone on to become some the finest alumni and active citizens of Chicago and communities throughout the world.

Outstanding students who meet Illinois Tech’s admission requirements are fully supported by a full range of academic services, guidance, and opportunities, including special days to visit campus, generous merit-scholarships starting at $10,000 per year, and scholarships starting at $5,000 per year for community college students who are members of Phi Theta Kappa and show proof of membership at the time of application.
