At Illinois Tech they find a strong and supportive community of aspiring entrepreneurs, architects, engineers, inventors, business people, scientists, and others who are pursuing careers in tech-focused disciplines.

Who Is a Transfer Student?
Transfer students are those students who are currently attending a college or university, or who have earned college credit after finishing high school. We consider all students who fit either of these criteria to be transfer students, regardless of the amount of college credit completed. Students currently in high school and taking classes at a college or university are not considered transfer students and should apply as first-year/freshman applicants. Domestic students are those who are United States citizens or U.S. permanent residents. This includes U.S. nationals living overseas in military or diplomatic zones.
