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. 

In the event a student takes a leave of absence, the original scholarship will be valid for one year.  Students who cease enrollment for longer than one year may have their scholarship eligibility reevaluated. Exceptions to these policies must be approved by the Financial Aid Office.

Appeals for a one-semester extension should be submitted to Students who may require a year-long course of study to meet their degree requirements should make their educational plans explicit in their appeal to the Financial Aid Office. Additional information may be requested 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.
