The Office of Financial Aid would like to welcome all students to campus for another great year! We have already seen and heard from many of you in our office and want to make sure everyone knows of the many opportunities our staff have to offer this year.


We have a great team of financial aid counselors who are happy to meet with you over any concerns you may have, from filling out required forms to listening to unexpected family financial situations. Our office aims to provide students quality services whatever their needs may be. If you are unsure if your situation would impact your financial aid, please stop by or set up an appointment so we can best direct you.

Additionally, our office has worked over the past year to provide more outside scholarship opportunities for students. Our website (found from the main iit.edu homepage under the Resources section) offers dozens of outside scholarship organizations that have funding available for students. The criteria are different for each scholarship, but we highly encourage students to take a look and commit time each month to applying for extra money!

Finally, our office plans to continue expanding our financial literacy opportunities for students. Last spring, we hosted a women and finance session with Women’s Services as well as a Credit Basics session. We received great feedback from these sessions and hope to continue providing new and interesting sessions for student in the upcoming year. If you are looking for financial resources for budgeting or saving, please visit the Money Management section on our website (along the left hand side of our homepage).

Again, we welcome all students to campus and hope to provide the IIT community in this upcoming year! Please stop by to see us in Main Building, Room 104 or contact us at 312.567.7219 or finaid@iit.edu.
