Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.75 Average Rating
This place is expensive. About $43,000 a year!!!! The good thing is that every one gets financial aid and this school helps you get a job quck. I had to pay a $3000 loan and that was it for my first semester, but I am really poor so FAFSA helped A LOT.

IIT is worth every penny. The professors I've had don't waste your time and they make sure that you learn what you came there to learn, but be prepared to put in as many hours as they say you'll need to! They aren't kidding. Just make sure you save a little cash for some down time on campus or in the city, fun should go with the studying.
Gwendolyn from Westmoreland, NH
When I first got accepted into IIT I received a 50% scholarship (which most students receive). Within two years I had increased that to a 100% tuition with an additional $2000 from various scholarships.
Daniel from Chicago, IL
The education you can receive from IIT is worth far more than you would ever pay in tuition. Employers in the city of Chicago know the type of students IIT produces and are eager to hire us because they know the type of work ethic we have.
Jenelle from Chicago, IL
This year the tuition went up about about 6% which making the cost of tuition 28,512 instead of the 26 grand it was previously. The amount of experience that you will receive here in the end of course is worth it, since the graduating class of 2008 made in their first year between 80-90 grand. So IIT is worth it.
Shatoria from Chicago, IL
The opportunities here are endless. You get to associate yourself with loads of people around the world since they are so many exchange students and internation students so you can immerse yourself the various culture our world has to offer. Your given a pass that is paid from your tuition that gives you unlimited usage of the public transportation (CTA) within the city, allowing you to save so much as long as your willing to explore the city. Tuition may be expensive at first, but the school will usually give loads of scholarship to lower that fee down.
Gary from Fort Worth, TX
There are a lot of scholarships here. Like, a lot! I, personally was awarded a scholarship to cover my tuition, so I am only paying for housing and board and all that, which is still expensive. But if you are looking for a good engineering or architecture degree, you can definitely find it here.
