Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
105 ILCS 302/30 new


Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the College and Career Success for All Students Act. Provides that a student who takes a College Board Advanced Placement examination and receives a score of 3 or higher on the examination is entitled to receive postsecondary level course credit at a public institution of higher education. Requires each public institution of higher education to comply with the same standard of awarding course credit to any student receiving a score of 3 or higher on a College Board Advanced Placement examination and applying the credit to meet a corresponding course requirement for degree completion at that institution of higher education. Effective immediately.

 Fiscal Note (IL Board of Higher Education)
 HB 3428 could potentially decrease the amount of tuition revenue received by the public institutions by enabling students who obtain a score of 3 or higher on the College Board Advanced Placement examination to bypass costs associated with earning those credits.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This bill does not create a State mandate.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the College and Career Success for All Students Act. Requires the Illinois Articulation Initiative, through its Major panels and General Education panels, to review each of the College Board Advanced Placement examinations and assign codes for transfer. Provides that all courses, Advanced Placement or otherwise, assigned codes for transfer through the Illinois Articulation Initiative must be guaranteed transfer credit as an individual course and not be required to be part of a package of courses. Provides that public institutions of higher education that offer a corresponding course for a particular Advanced Placement examination are required to accept a student's score of 3 or higher on the Advanced Placement examination for postsecondary level course credit as a part of their general education degree requirements, if applicable, or for an elective credit if not. Provides that if a public institution of higher education does not offer a corresponding course for a particular Advanced Placement examination, then the institution shall award, at a minimum, elective postsecondary level course credit toward general education degree requirements for those students who receive a score of 3 or higher on the Advanced Placement examination. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the College and Career Success for All Students Act. Provides that beginning with the 2016-2017 academic year, scores of 3, 4, and 5 on the College Board Advanced Placement examinations shall be accepted for credit to satisfy degree requirements by all public institutions of higher education. Provides that each institution of higher education shall determine for each test whether credit will be granted for electives, general education requirements, or major requirements and the Advanced Placement scores required to grant credit for those purposes. Provides that by the conclusion of the 2019-2020 academic year, the Board of Higher Education shall analyze the Advanced Placement examination score course granting policy of each institution of higher education and the research used by each institution in determining the level of credit and the number of credits provided for the Advanced Placement scores and file a report that includes findings and recommendations to the General Assembly and the Governor. Provides that each institution of higher education shall publish its updated Advanced Placement examination score course granting policy on its Internet website before the beginning of the 2016-2017 academic year. Effective immediately.
