The student activity fee is a mandatory fee that assists programs directly related to campus activities in conjunction with student organizations. The use and allocation of this fee is handled directly by students via the Finance Board, with accountability to the Student Government Association. This fee supports student organizations' operational, programming, and conference budgets as well as large-scale campus events.
The Co-curricular Fee is a mandatory fee assessed to all IIT Stuart students in the fall and spring semesters. The fee supports co-curricular programs that enhance students' academic experience and increase their career readiness.
The mandatory graduation fee is intended to cover all administrative costs associated with the application, checkout, posting, and degree reporting processes. This fee is adminstered by the Undergraduate and Graduate Academic Affairs offices. Voluntary participation in the main and/or unit commencement ceremonies is provided at no additional cost to qualified students and their guests. Proceeds from the graduation fee do not apply to university expenses for student and guest participation in the main and/or academic unit ceremonies, such as caps and gowns. Students who submit an application for graduation late will be assessed a late graduation fee.

A deferment plan fee is assessed to any student that chooses to enroll in the tuition deferment program offered by IIT during the open registration dates.
Late fees are assessed to delinquent student accounts at a rate of 2% per month. Students who enroll in a payment plan and make their payments after the due date are assessed a monthly late fee.
Students should register at their earliest opportunity. Those who register late may be required to pay a late registration fee to do so. Information about registration periods including late registration can be found in the Course Schedule.
A payment plan fee is assessed to any student that chooses to enroll in a formal payment plan offered by IIT during the open registration dates.
Each time a check or electronic check is returned as unpayable by the bank for insufficient funds, invalid routing and/or account information, stop payment, or any other reason, the payee is assessed a returned check fee.
The United Minds Inspiring Innovation (UMII) scholarship fee supports an application-based scholarship for undergraduate undocumented students who are ineligible for federal financial aid (FAFSA).
