NEW PHD STUDENT INFORMATION
To help you prepare and get off to a good start in Chicago, TTIC has built this site to address any topics/questions that might come up on or before your arrival at TTIC. Most of the information contained consists useful links and tips, along with information about Orientation. Please consult with TTIC Student Services if you have specific questions about TTIC services, policies and procedures. Also, please let Student Services know if there is a question you have that has not been covered on this site.
Welcome to TTIC!

Autumn and COVID-19
Autumn 2022: Everyone on campus is expected to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
TTIC takes federal, state, and local public health regulations seriously, and the health of the community is top priority. As TTIC shares a campus with the University of Chicago, we will have nearly identical health and safety protocols as we all return to campus.
Every student on campus will be required to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination, or complete mandatory testing. Learn more on the Health Matters page of this site.
