(110 ILCS 952/40)
Student enrollment and obligations of institutions.
(a) An approved institution is free to accept a student who is a scholarship recipient under this Act in compliance with its own admissions requirements, standards, and policies. The Department may disburse a scholarship for tuition and fees to the approved institution directly for the payment of tuition and other necessary fees or for credit against the student's obligation for such tuition and fees, and, upon acceptance thereof, the approved institution shall be contractually obligated (i) to provide facilities and instruction to the student on the same terms as to other students generally and (ii) to provide the notices and information described in this Section.
(b) If, in the course of an academic period, a student enrolled in an approved institution pursuant to a scholarship granted under this Act shall for any reason cease to be a student in good standing, the institution shall promptly give written notice to the Department concerning such change of status and the reason thereof.
(c) A student to whom a renewal scholarship has been awarded may either re-enroll in the institution that he or she attended during the preceding year or enroll in any other approved institution; and, in either event, the institution accepting the student for such enrollment or re-enrollment shall notify the Department of such acceptance.
