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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(a) The Department may, upon application in writing on forms or electronically accompanied by the required fee, issue a license as an architect to an applicant licensed under the laws of another state, the District of Columbia, or a territory of the United States 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) If the accuracy of any submitted documentation or relevance or sufficiency of the coursework 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.
(c) Applicants have 3 years from the date of application to complete the
application process. If the process has not been completed within the 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.
