Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Criminal History in College Applications Act. Provides that a public college may not inquire about or consider an applicant's criminal history information at any time during the admission decision-making process, except as required by State or federal law. Allows public colleges to continue using a multi-institution application, even if the application inquires about criminal history, but requires the public college to disregard the information for the admissions process. Allows public colleges to inquire about criminal history for certain purposes after the admission decision-making process, but forbids public colleges from rescinding an admissions offer based on the information. Authorizes public colleges to provide certain information. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that a public college may make inquiry about or consider an applicant's criminal history information if that inquiry or consideration is required by federal law or specified provisions of the Department of State Police Law of the Civil Administrative Code of Illinois or the Medical School Matriculant Criminal History Records Check Act, if applicable (rather than is required by State or federal law). Provides that a public college may make inquiries about and consider an individual's criminal history information for the purposes of offering the individual other guidance, in addition to counseling and services. Provides that a college may include information on its admissions materials and website that informs prospective applicants that a criminal record may affect an individual's ability to obtain certain professional, in addition to occupational, licenses.
