Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Credit for Prior Learning Act. Requires each public university to submit its policies and procedures for students to earn credit for prior learning to the Board of Higher Education for review and approval and each community college to submit its policies and procedures for students to earn credit for prior learning to the Illinois Community College Board for review and approval. Provides that, at a minimum, these procedures shall include a listing of the types of documentation acceptable and the dates of inclusion for which prior learning is acceptable. Requires the Board of Higher Education and the Illinois Community College Board to adopt rules to permit public higher education institutions to award credit for prior learning after the assessment of prior learning experiences for documented learning that demonstrates achievement of all terminal objectives for a specific course or courses.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Requires public universities to submit policies concerning credit for prior learning to the Board of Higher Education (rather than submit to the Board for review and approval). Requires community colleges to submit policies concerning credit for prior learning to the Illinois Community College Board (rather than submit to the Board for review and approval).
