Tuition and Financial Aid

More than 98 percent of Illinois Tech students receive some type of financial aid. You can review our cost of attendance and ways to finance your education in the financial aid section of our website.

Viewing Your Financial Aid Offer

Eligible domestic students who submit their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will receive their financial aid offers beginning in late March. They will receive an email via their Hawk email account once their offer is available and can view it on the Finances tab in their myIIT Portal. View instructions on how to access your financial aid offer.

When choosing a college, it is important to consider not just the cost of the education, but also its long-term value. The primary benefits of attending Illinois Tech are the knowledge and capabilities that will enrich your experience and create opportunities for your future, whether in graduate study, the workplace, or your everyday life. PayScale ranks Illinois Tech #1 in Illinois for mid-career earnings of our graduates (after aid).

If you have any questions about funding your education, we encourage you to contact your admission counselor.

Our Support Philosophy

Illinois Tech was founded on the mission that we could build a school where students of all backgrounds could prepare for meaningful roles in a changing society. This informs our approach to student success and our commitment to affordability.

If you receive a merit or need-based scholarship and your GPA drops below the recommended threshold to remain in good academic standing, our financial aid team will work with you to form a plan to help you keep your scholarship and receive the academic support needed for long-term success.

Paying Your Tuition Bill

Once you register for courses, you will gain access to your tuition bill. Tuition is due two weeks after the first day of courses.
