Headlines for the Week of August 22, 2011

Do you have IIT's health insurance?

Did you know that without your authorization, your loans will not automatically cover your health insurance fee? This means you could receive a refund and still owe IIT money. To avoid that situation, you must complete a Title IV Authorization Form authorizing us to apply your loans to "Non-Institutional" charges.

If you do not complete a Title IV Authorization Form, you will be expected to pay your health insurance fee out of pocket by the due date, August 22. If you do complete the Title IV Authorization Form, your health insurance fee will be automatically paid with your loan money and you will be refunded any remainder per the normal process.

The timing of your refund will not be affected by this decision. Completing the Title IV Authorization Form will simply ensure that you do not have outstanding debts to the university after receiving your refund. All outstanding debts will result in the placement of a registration hold and the subsequent assessment of late fees.

You can complete the Title IV Authorization Form online through your myIIT Portal Finances tab by clicking on Title IV Authorization Form in the Bursar's Office channel. Check the Non-Institutional Charge Authorization box and submit.

Tuition due date

Tuition and fees less any anticipated financial aid awards are due in full by the first day of classes each semester unless a student is enrolled in a payment plan. Please remember that failure to comply with this due date will result in a 2 percent monthly late fee and will prohibit registration for subsequent semesters. Additional information regarding IIT's payment policy can be found on our website at
