More in Financial Aid


The Office of Financial Aid is an integral part of fulfilling our mission as a university. Illinois Tech was founded in order to lift up people of all backgrounds with education that would help them meet the needs of the age. One hundred thirty years on, we remain committed to doing just that. 

The Office of Financial Aid strives to educate, guide, and support students with an understanding of their personal financial aid options and resources in an inclusive environment. Whether you are a new incoming student,  graduating next semester, a parent, or alumni our team is ready to assist you.
