Student Health Insurance

You can find information about student health insurance online here. All students registered for at least one credit hour in the Fall semester (including intersession classes listed on the Fall schedule; but not including Incomplete make-ups) will automatically be billed for student health insurance. This applies to both Day and Evening Division students.

You may waive insurance coverage if you have comparable coverage. Click here for information on submitting a waiver request. The deadline for waiving coverage is September 1. IIT requires students who waive the student health insurance to do so every year. The waiver process goes directly through Aetna Student Health Insurance. (Please note: If you are on an F1 or J1 visa, you will not be permitted to waive the IIT health insurance.) If you do not waive coverage by September 1, you will be billed for the insurance.

The health insurance coverage runs from August 10, 2021 to August 9, 2022. You may print your insurance card here. Aetna Student Health has an app that will allow you to have your insurance card and benefit details on your smart device; click here for more information on downloading an activating the app. Insurance cards will not be mailed out unless a request is made by calling 800-841-3140. If you have any questions about the app, contact the Student Health and Wellness Center at 312-567-7550 or
