Illinois Tech Students

Prospective students who wish to take courses online at Illinois Institute of Technology generally must first be admitted to a degree, certificate, or professional development program. For specific information on admission to these programs, please visit Graduate Admission or the Professional Learning Programs pages.

Individuals are welcome to apply to take courses in a non-degree capacity. Non-degree status does not confer automatic admission into a degree-granting program and limits to the number of overall credits that can be taken. For more information, visit the Certificate and Non-Degree Applicants page.

Students taking Digital Learning courses are Illinois Tech students and are subject to all of the same policies and procedures as on-campus students in face-to-face courses.

Complaint Process

Illinois Institute of Technology is required to provide all prospective and current students with the contact information of the state agency or agencies that handle complaints against postsecondary education institutions offering distance learning within that state. IIT expects the should any student have any concerns, issues, or complaints, the issues are raised and resolved within the institution and its processes. Please see your department or the IIT Office of the Ombudsperson for details.
