Submit your final documents
As a condition of your admission offer you must submit your official documents to the Office of Graduate Admission. You will be able to register for your first term but a hold will be placed prior to registration for the second term until you have met with our office.

Access your MyIIT Portal
New IIT students receive a unique identifier (UID) that is also your IIT email username and login for IIT's networking and computing services. Your university-designated student email account will be the official means of communication between you and the university, and will be used to notify you of your financial aid award if you apply for federal financial aid. You will receive instructions via email for locating your UID and logging in to the myIIT student portal. Learn more here.
Learn about student health insurance and immunization requirements
U.S. students have the option to submit proof of equivalent insurance in lieu of IIT student health insurance. All full-time students and occupants of IIT residence halls are required to purchase IIT's student health insurance policy. Eligible students who wish to be considered for an insurance waiver must fill out the Student Health Insurance Waiver form. Part-time students, spouses of students, and/or minor children can purchase insurance, if desired. For more information, visit Student Health and Wellness Center or contact the office directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 312.567.7550.
Students are required to submit proof of immunization against certain communicable diseases to the Student Health and Wellness Center. Individuals who are not properly immunized or who do not have proof of immunization may receive the required immunizations at the Student Health Center for a nominal fee. For more information, visit Student Health and Wellness Center or contact the office directly at email@example.com or 312.567.7550.
Learn about housing
As a graduate student, you have the opportunity and flexibility to live either on or off campus.
Living on campus is a great way to find support for the many challenges associated with being a busy graduate student; and residence halls provide purposefully structured environments for social and academic success. Residence and Greek Life accepts applications on a first-come, first-served basis, from part-time and full-time graduate students, including visiting and exchange students.
Students are strongly encouraged to contact Residence and Greek Life as early as possible to reserve or inquire about on-campus housing. For complete information about deadlines, on-campus, off-campus, and temporary housing options, please visit Residence and Greek Life or contact the office directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 312.567.5075.
