(225 ILCS 305/13) (from Ch. 111, par. 1313)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2020)
    Sec. 13. Qualifications of applicants. Any person who is of good moral character may apply for licensure if he or she is a graduate with a first professional degree in architecture from a program accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board, has completed the examination requirements set forth under Section 12 of this Act, and has completed such diversified professional training, including academic training, as is required by rules of the Department. Until January 1, 2016, in lieu of the requirement of graduation with a first professional degree in architecture from a program accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board, the Department may admit an applicant who is a graduate with a pre-professional 4 year baccalaureate degree accepted for direct entry into a first professional master of architecture degree program, and who has completed such additional diversified professional training, including academic training, as is required by rules of the Department. The Department may adopt, as its own rules relating to diversified professional training, those guidelines published from time to time by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards.
    Good moral character means such character as will enable a person to discharge the fiduciary duties of an architect to that person's client and to the public in a manner which protects health, safety and welfare. Evidence of inability to discharge such duties may include the commission of an offense justifying discipline under Section 22. In addition, the Department may take into consideration whether the applicant has engaged in conduct or actions that would constitute grounds for discipline under this Act.
