|Financial Aid Award Letters Released January
Illinois Tech‘s Office of Financial Aid began mailing financial aid packages to FAFSA filers in January. Students can still submit the FAFSA and should take advantage of our outside scholarship spreadsheet. Students can call or email their admission counselors with questions about their awards or concerns about financing their Illinois Tech education. We are proud of the high ROI for our graduates (#1 in Illinois for 20-year earnings and #56 in the country after aid, according to PayScale), and our counselors have significant experience making an Illinois Techeducation affordable for students and families.
|Improving the Financial Situation of Rising Students
Rising juniors can take steps now to improve their financial situation when applying to Illinois Tech. They should opt into honors and AP STEM classes (especially pre-calculus and physics), retake the ACT or SAT, maintain A’s and B’s, and ask a STEM teacher to write their recommendation to improve opportunities for merit scholarship consideration. They can also start researching private scholarships on our spreadsheet.

In early February we welcomed hundreds of students to campus to interview for our top undergraduate scholarships duringScholarship Symposium. Congratulations to our newest Camras, Duchossois, and Crown Scholars! Finalists have been selected, and each student should submit their deposit by May 1 to accept their scholarship.
|Summer Opportunities on Campus
