Thinking of Transferring?

Illinois Tech offers an unparalleled academic experience in one of the world's great global cities. Some schools may get a lot of attention, but at many of them it's easy to get lost in the crowd. Illinois Tech is small but mighty. We're smart, creative, problem solvers. People who get. Things. Done.

What Kind of Students Transfer?

Students who know that a degree from a world-class university will prepare them to achieve more. Students who are curious and sharp and ambitious and rebellious. They are people with the audacity to do things better, smarter, and faster. People who are ready to live, see, do, be, and own it all. People like you.

Every year, approximately thirty percent of our incoming class are transfer students. Here you'll join a smart, dynamic group of students who are exploring new talents, having fun, and enriching their lives through our diverse list of more than 150 student organizations and academic-oriented groups. These special programs offer something for aspiring entrepreneurs, architects, inventors—you name it.

If your goal is to aim high and advance your future, you'll fit in here.
