Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

110 ILCS 805/3-17

    (110 ILCS 805/3-17) (from Ch. 122, par. 103-17)
    Sec. 3-17. The community college districts shall admit all students qualified to complete any one of their programs including general education, transfer, occupational, technical, and terminal, as long as space for effective instruction is available. After entry, the college shall counsel and distribute the students among its programs according to their interests and abilities. Students allowed entry in college transfer programs must have ability and competence similar to that possessed by students admitted to state universities for similar programs. Entry level competence to such college transfer programs may be achieved through successful completion of other preparatory courses offered by the college. If space is not available for all students applying, the community college will accept those best qualified, using rank in class and ability and achievement tests as guides, and shall give preference to students residing in the district unless the district has entered into a contractual agreement for the mutual exchange of students with another community college district, in which case, equal enrollment preference may be granted to students residing in such contracting districts.
    A student who has graduated from high school and has scored within the community college's accepted range on the ACT or SAT shall not be required to take a high school equivalency test as a prerequisite to admission.
