Frequently asked questions

  Illinois Tech ONCAMPUS Boston

Should students in their home country travel back to the U.Ss for exams?

International Year student (IFY/IGY) or a direct student has returned home for the Spring 2020 semester due to COVID, then they do not need to return to the campus to complete their exams. They will be conducted online. All classes for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester will be online. If students have returned home for Spring 2020 then they are advised not to return to campus. Students have the option of staying in the U.S. or returning to their home countries. If students decide to travel back to their home countries for exams, there will be no change in their immigration status, and they can complete exams and course work 100% online via the Blackboard portal.

If the students want to come back to their home country, will their tuition/accommodation fees be refunded or extended to the new term?

If a student decides not to return to the campus after Spring break and they have on-campus housing, they’ll need to fill out a form on the housing website so IIT can assess if a housing or meal plan refund is due. For tuition, please refer to the

Terms and Conditions.

For Room and Board we are awaiting an announcement from Curry on any refunds for any forfeited services and we will update all parties accordingly. For tuition, please refer to the

Terms and Conditions.

If students are taking online classes, will it affect their progression?

We are committed to ensuring that students’ education and academic progression are not compromised by this extraordinary situation. We are working with our University partners to ensure that students’ academic records will not be adversely affected.
