Financial Aid

Study Away Disbursement Policy

Student financial aid may only apply to specific study away programs. You can read more about which aid can be used based on your program on the Study Away page.

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 away 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. All tuition and fees are subject to revision by Illinois Tech’s Board of Trustees.
