What happens to my scholarships?
All students returning from an approved leave of absence will have their scholarships reinstated at the same level as when they left the university. If you have been away for over a year, you will need to be re-admitted to the university, at which time you will be automatically re-evaluated for all merit based scholarships offered by IIT.

Am I still eligible for federal financial aid?
Yes. If you are interested in financial aid, make an appointment with the Office of Financial Aid to discuss financial aid options for the upcoming year. Please make sure that you have completed the FAFSA for the current academic year and have had the Department of Education send those results to IIT. Once you are reinstated, you will be automatically packaged for federal financial aid.
