The list of required textbooks will be posted at the beginning of each semester on the Required Course Materials Page. If you do not see your class listed, please contact the instructor.

Exam Proctors

Since Internet classes generally necessitate proctored exams, you are required, with the help of Chuck Scott of IIT Online, to select a proctor and establish a site where you will be able to take the exam. These sites can include a local public library, community college testing center, or even the HR department at your place of work. If you are unsure if your class requires proctored exams, please contact your instructor directly. Chuck Scott can be reached by email at or by phone 312-567-5217.

Tuition Payment

You should receive your tuition bill within 10-14 days of registering for classes. For detailed information on tuition and fees plus information on payment methods and payment plans, please visit the Bursars Office.
