The Illinois Institute of Technology, committed to the health and welfare of all its students, requires all students, who have registered for one academic credit hour or more, to have health insurance. Students who have their own health insurance and wish to opt-out must complete a Student Health Insurance Waiver. Failure to complete the waiver will result in a student being enrolled and charged the Health Insurance Fee. Students who are not eligible for the Health Insurance but wish to opt in can enroll in the program by contacting the Student Health and Wellness Center at 312-567-7550 or
