Tuition and Fees


English Language Services students, full or part time, are part of the university and therefore pay all fees associated with the university in addition to ELS tuition. When applying to the IEP, students need to submit the Illinois Tech English Language Services' Financial Affidavit of Support for F-1 or J-1 students to demonstrate that they or their sponsor have available finances to meet the educational and living expenses while studying at Illinois Tech.

Admitted IEP students must pay a $100 nonrefundable Application Processing Fee to cover application processing, document evaluation, processing and shipment of the I-20 (internationally or domestically), and placement exam reservation. This fee applies to both newly admitted students and students who have deferred their admission to a future semester. Payment of the fee must be received prior to creating an I20.
