Student Handbook

Welcome to Illinois Institute of Technology and the 2023–2024 Academic Year

Illinois Tech was founded on the premise that every person of any background could be educated here and find meaningful roles in society. Even over 100 years later, we continue to take pride in our campus, curriculum, and vibrant student life in and out of the classroom.

Our strategic plan has prioritized student success. We know that being supported by and connected to the Illinois Tech community is key to finding the quality skills and connections needed to find meaningful roles in society today. Illinois Tech is a place where excellence meets innovation and students have many opportunities to discover their talents, create a pathway for their success, and solve the world’s most difficult problems.

This Student Handbook contains important information that identifies support resources for students and specifies expectations for appropriate behavior at Illinois Tech.  All students are responsible for the contents of the handbook. Please read this document to become familiar with its contents.

Our university is vibrant with many student organizations that directly contribute to student life at Illinois Tech. This handbook also contains information that will allow you to get to know these various organizations and services.  I encourage you to get involved.

The Student Affairs team is ready to assist students with any needs inside and outside of the classroom. We look forward to meeting you in the coming months and years. Please feel free to contact us with any questions, comments, needs, or concerns at

We look forward to a great year.
