Student Fee Descriptions

Student Activity Fee
This fee provides funding for major speakers, and for all student organizations and activities.

Chicago Transit Authority U-Pass
The U-Pass is a discount fare card that can be used for unlimited rides on all CTA buses and trains. All full-time students are required to participate in the U-Pass program and may not opt out. (Please note: We regret that although many part-time students commute via the CTA, due to the CTA's structuring of the program part-time students are unable to participate.)

Student Health Insurance
All students registered for at least 1 credit hour, regardless of their division, are required to have health insurance and will automatically be billed for student health insurance for the year unless they provide proof of other health insurance coverage. Coverage for dependents and spouses is also available for additional charges.

Immunization Form Fee
Illinois State law and IL Tech require university students who are enrolled at least half-time to be immunized against certain communicable diseases. You are required to submit proof of your immunizations to the Student Health and Wellness Center.  The university uses Med + Proctor, an electronic medical clearance platform, to monitor and collect your immunization information. There is a fee to set up your Med + Proctor account. 

Refund Policy and Payment Plans

Information about the university's refund policy and tuition payment plans is available on the Student Accounting Office website at web.iit.edu/student-accounting.
