Guaranteed Admission: General

Illinois Tech Transfer Guaranteed Admission Program (TR-GAP)

The Illinois Tech Transfer Guaranteed Admission Program (TR-GAP) provides transfer students with the opportunity to gain early admission to their first-choice major conditional upon meeting specified criteria identified for the academic program of interest. Students who fall below guaranteed admission criteria may still apply to the major of their choice, however, admission will be competitive based on program capacity and will entail a thorough review of academic progress.

Learn about our guaranteed admission program with City Colleges of Chicago - Wright College and College of Dupage.

Transfer Guaranteed Admission Program (TR-GAP) General Guidelines

Illinois Tech considers for guaranteed transfer admission (TR-GAP) students of high academic caliber with strong performance in courses relevant to the intended program of study. Typically, students achieving A’s & B’s in technical coursework required by their major, coupled with an overall 3.0 GPA in all transferable courses are considered for the Illinois Tech Transfer Guaranteed Admission Program “TR-GAP.”

Students interested in the Illinois Tech TR-GAP must complete a minimum of 30 credit hours prior to applying through the TR-GAP.  We also require the submission of transcripts from all colleges attended, regardless of academic or financial standing, length of attendance, or length of time since attendance.

Transfer Guaranteed Admission Program (TR-GAP) applicants must also be in good standing at colleges previously attended to be considered for admission to IIT.
