    AN ACT concerning education.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The State Universities Civil Service Act is
amended by changing Section 36f as follows:
    (110 ILCS 70/36f)  (from Ch. 24 1/2, par. 38b5)
    Sec. 36f. Examinations.
    (a) All examinations given under the University System
shall be open to all applicants who are citizens of or
residents in the State of Illinois and who can qualify by
training and experience for the position for which application
is made. In examinations for technical positions for which no
qualified residents of this State are available the residence
requirement may be waived. In examinations for law enforcement
personnel, the residence requirement shall be waived.
    (b) Examinations may be written; oral; by statement of
training and experience; in the form of tests of knowledge,
skill, capacity, intellect, or aptitude; or by any other
method which, in the judgment of the Merit Board, is
reasonable and practical for any particular classification.
The examinations shall be practical and shall relate to the
classification for which the examination is given. No question
in any examination shall relate to political or religious
affiliation or racial origins of the examinee.
    (c) Different examining procedures may be determined for
the examinations in different classifications, but all
examinations in the same classification must be uniform. The
examination requirement for the initial appointment, entry
level position only, of law enforcement personnel may be
waived if an applicant has satisfied all the requirements
established by the Illinois Police Training Act for
appointment of law enforcement officers and if the Merit Board
allows for such a waiver by rule. Additional positions, entry
level only, may have the examination requirement waived if the
occupational standards are regulated by the Department of
Financial and Professional Regulation, as designated by the
Merit Board and provided for in adopted rules.
