All graduate students are encouraged to consult with a faculty advisor prior to registration. Some academic departments or programs (e.g., Electrical and Computer Engineering and non-degree Computer Science and Mechanical, Materials, and Aerospace Engineering) require advising before students are permitted to register, so be sure to check with your department before getting started.
Your assigned academic advisor, who is identified in your official admission letter, can give you the unique "Alternate PIN" number you will need in order to register through the myIIT student portal.
International students: You will be permitted to register only after you arrive on campus and check in with the International Center.
For additional assistance with registration, visit the Registrar's Office or contact your academic department.
The Graduate Bulletin outlines important academic policies for graduate students.
Information about current graduate tuition and fees is available here. To learn more about tuition and fee rates, payment methods and payment plans, visit the Student Accounting Office or contact the office directly at email@example.com or 312.567.3794.
Graduate fellowships, teaching assistantships and research assistantships are awarded by individual departments to a limited number of highly qualified, full-time students at the time of admission. Departmental funding is based on merit, and every applicant is automatically considered upon timely submission of a complete application packet. If you receive a funding award, you will be notified of the award in your official admission letter.
The Office of Financial Aid also assists new and continuing graduate students in gathering information about how best to finance their education. For complete information about graduate financing options, including federal student loans (available to U.S. students only), visit the Office of Financial Aid or contact the office directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 312.567.7219.
You should purchase books and supplies for your classes after you arrive on campus and complete the registration process. You will receive more information in your orientation session.
