    Sec. 20. Endorsement.
    (a) The Department may, upon application in writing on forms or electronically accompanied by the required fee, issue a license as a professional land surveyor to an applicant licensed under the laws of another state, the District of Columbia, or a U.S. territory if the requirements for licensure in that jurisdiction were, on the date of original licensure, substantially equivalent to the requirements then in force in this State.
    (b) All applicants for endorsement shall pass a jurisdictional examination to determine the applicant's knowledge of the surveying tasks unique to the State of Illinois and the laws pertaining thereto.
    (c) If the accuracy of any submitted documentation or relevance or sufficiency of the course work or experience is questioned by the Department or the Board because of a lack of information, discrepancies, or conflicts in information given or a need for clarification, the applicant seeking licensure may be required to provide additional information.
    (d) Applicants have 3 years from the date of application to complete the application process. If the process has not been completed in 3 years, the application shall be denied, the fee shall be forfeited, and the applicant must reapply and meet the requirements in effect at the time of reapplication.
