Study Abroad Disbursement Policy

Students' institutional scholarships and federal financial aid cannot legally disburse until a minimum of 10 days before the first day of courses at Illinois Institute of Technology—regardless of the start date of the program abroad.

Students enrolled in a study abroad program during the summer term will have their aid disbursed 10 days prior to the start of one of the official summer sessions. Students can refer to Illinois Tech's academic calendar for reference.

As aid disbursement might not align with a student's program enrollment, students may have to cover some payments and tuition costs while waiting for federal financial aid to disburse. To determine the disbursement date for the intended term abroad, you may contact:
