International Admissions:

Welcome to Illinois Institute of Technology—where inspiration and imagination fuel innovation.

For nearly 125 years, IIT students have been inspired to invent new products, explore new ways to solve tough problems, and use new technology to do things better, smarter, and faster.

Students from 100 countries around the globe pursue undergraduate, graduate, and certificate studies at IIT for reasons as varied as the students themselves. Some chose IIT for our small classroom environment, the flexibility of online courses, our Main Campus’ location in Chicago, or for the opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary research. For some it was access to a faculty that represents more than 26 countries and brings to the university a unique worldview that comes from experience living and working in and among other countries and cultures.


Many prospective international students are qualified academically to attend IIT but have not yet scored high enough on the TOEFL and IELTS to be admitted into a degree program.  The TOEFL and IELTS exams are not required for entry to the Professional Learning Program (PLP.)  Participation in PLP greatly enhances students' English skills, enabling most students to achieve TOEFL or IELTS scores high enough for admission to a United States degree program after one, two, or three semesters of study.  Students in PLP will learn information technology and/or business and/or civil, architectural, and environmental engineering while also learning English.  In this way, IIT offers and advantage over language schools that focus primarily on English.  Participants must also be 18 years of age.

Professional Learning Program
Students are granted Master Certificates in Information Technology, Business, or Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering.  Students who continue their studay at IIT by applying to an undergraduate or graduate program in either Information Technology and Management or Industrial Technology and Management can transfer up to three courses.

Undergraduate Admission
At IIT we believe in teamwork, collaboration, and partnerships. You’ll get the chance to work with students in other fields of study to find innovative ways to solve real-world problems in the iPro program. And by collaborating with students from different majors, IIT students have engineered synthetic microorganisms, developed a sustainable water-purification system for developing countries, and harnessed solar energy in Haiti.

Graduate Admission
Graduate instruction at IIT emphasizes hands-on learning, research, and field work, and integrates topics such as ethics and entrepreneurship. Options include master’s and doctoral programs (thesis required) and professional master’s programs (no thesis required).
