I applied late but I still want to register for classes -- is it possible?
    Yes, it is possible you could be conditionally admitted as a non-degree student in order to permit you to begin taking courses right away: you must be admitted in order to register. Your application materials must be complete not later than the fourth week of the semester and you will have a limit on your registration six credit hours; admission as a non-degree student does not guarantee subsequent admission as a degree-seeking student.

    Please note: International students are not eligible for registration as non-degree, certificate or part-time students.

    What is myIIT?
    New IIT students receive a unique identifier (UID) that is also their IIT email username and login for IIT's networking and computing services. Anytime you need to use resources online that are restricted to IIT members (such as the myIIT portal, computer labs and the IIT network, etc...), the system will prompt you for your UID and password. Your UID will remain the same during your entire IIT experience. To access the myIIT portal for the first time, each student must log in using his or her IIT-assigned UID (User ID) for the username and the IIT-assigned password. On subsequent visits to the myIIT portal, you will continue to use your IIT-assigned UID as your username along with a password you create during the process outlined below.

    1. Find your UID (User ID) online and fill out the MyUID search form. Your UID will appear in "bold black" text in the Student Results area.

    2. Determine your initial myIIT password
    Your initial password to access the myIIT portal consists of the two-digit month and two-digit day of your birth date plus the last 4-digits of your CWID number (the ID number you received when you were admitted to IIT). For example, if your birth date is June 8 and the last 4-digits of your CWID are 1234, your initial password would be 06081234.

    When you log into the portal for the first time, you will be prompted to create a new password.

    3. Access the myIIT portal
    Once you have your UID and password, you can access the myIIT portal. On the myIIT login page, enter your myIIT username and password in the login area on the left side of the screen.
