All Illinois Tech students, including continuing and new international students, both graduate and undergraduate, are required to show proof of health insurance that complies with the United States Department of State guidelines. Additionally, Illinois Tech requires all international students to purchase Illinois Tech's health insurance, provided through Aetna Student Health. Waivers for comparable health insurance plans may apply. Please review our waiver policy and direct questions to student.health@iit.edu

New international students that begin online in fall 2020 do not need to purchase Illinois Tech’s insurance plan until they arrive on campus in January 2021. They will be able to purchase the insurance at a reduced rate due to the shorter coverage period.
