Immunization Verification
Illinois state law requires university students who are enrolled at least half-time to be immunized against certain communicable diseases. You are required to submit proof of immunization to the SHWC by the first week of class.

  • If you are a domestic student you must submit proof of having one dose of diptheria/tetanus/pertussis (DTP) within the last 10 years and two doses of measles/ mumps/rubella (MMR).
  • All students between the ages of 16–23 are required to submit proof of having a meningococcal vaccine after the age of 16.

    Forms are available online at web.iit.edu/shwc/immunizations

Health Insurance
All students are automatically billed for health insurance through Illinois Tech. The final 2019–20 insurance cost are available online at web.iit.edu/shwc/immunizations/available-immunization-times.

If you are already insured and would like to remain on your current plan, you may submit a waiver to remove this charge from your bill.

You will not be able to waive Illinois Tech insurance until the charge appears on your student bill after course registration.
