Semesters of Eligibility

If you entered as a first-year student, your eligibility for assistance from the university is normally limited to your first eight academic semesters (four years) at IIT, or 10 academic semesters (five years) for students in the College of Architecture. 

Exceptions to these policies must be approved by the Financial Aid Office. Appeals for a one-semester extension should be submitted to finaid@iit.edu. Students who may require a year-long course of study to meet degree requirements should make their educational plans explicit in their appeal to the Office of Financial Aid. The Office of Financial Aid may request additional information from the student and/or the student's advisor, Undergraduate Academic Affairs, or related offices before a decision is made. 

NOTE: This does not include coursework taken while studying abroad through enrollment in a program that is not sponsored by Illinois Institute of Technology.
