Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Public University Uniform Admission Act. Requires each public university in this State to admit first-time freshman applicants as undergraduate students if the applicant graduated with a grade point average in the top 10% of the student's high school graduating class in one of the 2 school years preceding the academic year for which the applicant is applying for admission and (1) the applicant graduated from an accredited public or private high school in this State or from a high school operated by the United States Department of Defense; (2) the applicant successfully completed the minimum college preparatory curriculum requirements for admission to the university or satisfied the ACT's College Readiness Benchmarks on the ACT college admission assessment applicable to the applicant or earned on the SAT college admission assessment a score of at least 1,500 out of 2,400; and (3) if the applicant graduated from a high school operated by the United States Department of Defense, the applicant is a State resident or is entitled to pay tuition fees at the rate provided for State residents. Provides that the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is not required to offer admission to applicants who qualify for automatic admission in excess of the number required to fill 75% of the university's enrollment capacity designated for first-time resident undergraduate students in an academic year. Sets forth other provisions concerning the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Sets forth other provisions concerning admissions. Provides for additional preparation for college, student outreach, and rulemaking.

 Fiscal Note (Illinois Board of Higher Education)
 Assuming the provisions of HB 230 would operate under existing capacity levels, it appears that the increased number of mandated entering freshmen students would off-set other eligible entering freshmen and the cost of instruction would generally remain the same. However, depending on the financial profile of the freshmen included under the guidelines presented in HB 230, financial aid costs could increase, although specific estimates are undeterminable at this time. The Illinois Board of Higher Education's FY2016 Weighted Average Tuition Report indicated an entering freshman class of 34,760 for the current academic year.

 State Debt Impact Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 This legislation would not change the amount of authorization for any type of State-issued or State-supported bond, and, therefore, would not affect the level of State indebtedness.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (rather than the Board of Higher Education) shall develop and implement a program to increase and enhance efforts of institutions in conducting outreach to academically high-performing high school seniors in the State who are likely eligible for automatic admission under the Act.

 Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Illinois Board of Higher Education)
 Assuming the provisions of House Bill 230 (H-AM 2) would operate under existing capacity levels, it appears that the increased number of mandated entering freshman students would off-set other eligible entering freshman and the cost of instruction would generally remain the same. However, depending on the financial profile of the freshman included under the guidelines presented in House Bill 230, financial aid costs could increase although specific estimates are undeterminable at this time.

 Judicial Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 This legislation would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State.

 State Debt Impact Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 This legislation would not change the amount of authorization for any type of State-issued or State-supported bond, and, therefore, would not affect the level of State indebtedness.

 Housing Affordability Impact Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Housing Development Authority)
 This bill will have no effect on the cost of constructing, purchasing, owning, or selling a single-family residence.

 Balanced Budget Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Office of Management and Budget)
 The Balanced Budget Note Act does not apply to this bill as it is not a supplemental appropriation that increases or decreases appropriations. Under the Act, a balanced budget note must be prepared only for bills that change a general funds appropriation for the fiscal year in which the new bill is enacted.

 Pension Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 This legislation will not impact any public pension fund or retirement system in Illinois.

 Correctional Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Dept of Corrections)
 This legislation has no fiscal or population impact on the Department of Corrections.

 Home Rule Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not pre-empt home rule authority.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 2 (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not create a State mandate.
