In accordance with federal regulations set forth by the Higher Education Act of 1965, Illinois Institute of Technology is required to make available to all prospective and enrolled students consumer information and campus metrics.
Below is a link to Chicago-Kent's consumer information page. Students can find resources related to general institutional information, student services, student financial aid, campus security, and student outcomes.
The Financial Aid Shopping Sheet contains estimated figures based on the information you reported on the FAFSA. This Shopping Sheet is meant to be a consumer tool; however, it is not meant to replace your financial aid award letter/notification. Please note: the Shopping Sheet was redesigned in 2014 by the United States Department of Education, as it was originally developed with undergraduate students in mind. Starting in 2014 Chicago-Kent has chosen to provide a Shopping Sheet for all graduate and professional student. The shopping sheet can be found on the myIIT portal.
Please note the following items on the Shopping Sheet:
- In the Grants and Scholarships area: graduate and professional students are not eligible for a Federal Pell Grant or state grant. This applies to undergraduates only.
- In the Loan Options area: graduate and professional students are not eligible for a Federal Subsidized Stafford Loan. Some students may be eligible for a Federal Perkins Loan if they meet certain criteria.
- The Federal Unsubsidized Loan amount may include both the Unsubsidized Loan and the Federal Graduate PLUS Loan eligibility.
In the Other Options Area:
- The Family Contribution, also known as the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is calculated based on information provided on the FAFSA by you and/or your spouse. Parental information is not required, nor reflected.
- The Parent PLUS Loan is not applicable to graduate and professional students, however, you may consider a Federal Direct PLUS Loan for graduate and professional students.
- The institutional data on the right is required data metrics for undergraduate institutions and does not meet the needs of graduate and professional institutions.
Explanation of Metrics:
- The Graduation Rate is a measurement that is used for undergraduate students. Therefore, due to the limitations of the Shopping Sheet we have indicated 0% since it does not pertain to law students.
- The Loan Default Rate that is displaying is our 3-year institution's combined (undergraduate, graduate, law and medical borrowers) 2009 default rate. Our rate is 2.7% and is considered to be low. The national average rate for similar institutions is 7.3% and the overall national average rate is 13.4%.
- The Median Borrowing is a measurement that is used for undergraduate students. Therefore, due to the limitations of the Shopping Sheet we have indicated "no information available" since it does not pertain to law students.
- We do report the average indebtedness of our J.D. graduates on an annual basis to the American Bar Association. The average J.D. debt reported of all borrowers who borrowed at least one educational loan and graduated in 2020–2021 was $100,593.
- The primary source of financing for our law students is federal loans. The flexibility of federal loan repayment is a major benefit for borrowers to consider. The options available allow them to change repayment plans that best fit their individual circumstances at any point of time during repayment.
