The Undergraduate ITM Program is available to the following types of students:

First-Year / 4 Year Students
First-year students are those who are currently enrolled in high school, or have completed less than 30 credit hours of college coursework.. Sometimes, these students are also referred to as "freshmen," regardless of their class standing upon entering the university.

Transfer Students
Transfer students are those who are currently attending a college or university, or who have attended a college or university after finishing high school. We consider all students who fit either of these criteria to be transfer students, regardless of the amount of college credit completed.

Co-Terminal Students (Undergraduate and Graduate)
Co-terminal degrees provide an opportunity for students to gain greater knowledge in specialized areas while completing a smaller number of credit hours with better scheduling flexibility than completion of the two degrees separately. Students maintain the undergraduate status, while completing graduate coursework, and can maintain financial aid eligibility when applicable. Co-terminal degree programs allow currently enrolled IIT undergraduate students to complete both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree, in as few as five years.

Domestic Students
Domestic students are those who are U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents. This includes U.S. nationals living overseas in military or diplomatic zones.

International Students
International students are those who are neither U.S. citizens nor U.S. permanent residents, regardless of where they are currently living or attending school. This means that U.S. citizens living abroad or in military or diplomatic zones are not considered international students. Foreign nationals attending school in the United States are considered international students.
