Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
110 ILCS 205/9.07from Ch. 144, par. 189.07


Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Board of Higher Education Act. Provides that if a public university admits a student who needs remedial coursework, then the university must require that the student complete the remedial coursework.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
110 ILCS 947/35

Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the contents of the bill with the following changes. Provides that if a State university determines that a student needs remedial coursework (instead of if a State university admits a student who needs remedial coursework), then the university must require that the student complete the remedial coursework. Amends the Higher Education Student Assistance Act. Provides that a student is not ineligible for Monetary Award Program consideration if (1) a State university that the student was enrolled at required that the student complete remedial coursework and (2) by subtracting the total number of semester credit hours, not to exceed 30 semester credit hours, of required remedial coursework that the student successfully completed and received award payments for, the student has received less than the equivalent of 135 semester credit hours of award payments.

 Fiscal Note (Illinois Student Assistance Commission)
 The Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) estimates the fiscal impact of this legislationto be as much as $8 million to $10 million for FY07, based upon ISAC's most recent complete year MAP data (from FY05). This estimate represents the amount by which the FY07 MAP appropriation would need to be increased to fund these students' MAP awards without adversely affecting MAP award availability for other eligible students. If the provisions of SB 2225 become law but no additional MAP funding is appropriated for FY 07, then ISAC either will need to further reduce the value of MAP awards for all recipients or cut off MAP grant processing an estimated two weeks earlier than currently projected. The latter option would eliminate FY07 MAP award eligibility for an estimated 12,000 later-applying students (most of whom attend Illinois community colleges or public and private urban higher education institutions).

 Fiscal Note (Illinois Board of Higher Education)
 The first provision of SB 2225 requires that under Illinois Board of Higher Education remedial education guidelines, State universities require students who are determined to be in need of remedial coursework to complete that coursework. The Board of Higher Education has surveyed all twelve public university campuses. Four campuses report that they do not offer remedial coursework. Seven of the eight campuses that admit students in need of remediation report that they are currently in compliance with the coursework provision of SB 2225. As a result, SB 2225 would not result in the expenditure of additional state funds at those campuses. The eighth campus, while it offers remedial coursework, is small and oriented toward upper-division undergraduate and graduate education, hence the impact of SB 2225 on the expenditure of state funds there is expected to be negligible. The second provision of SB 2225 would permit MAP-eligible students who are required to complete remedial coursework by the State university in which they are enrolled to be eligible for 30 additional hours of MAP eligibility beyond the current 135 credit hour maximum. In a separate fiscal note, The Illinois Student Assistance Commission has estimated the fiscal impact of this provision to be as much as $8 million to $10 million for FY07. The estimated cost could be covered by either an addition to the fiscal year 2007 MAP appropriation, which would result in additional expenditures of State funds, by a concomitant reduction in all MAP awards, or by an earlier cut off in MAP award processing.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that if a State university determines that a student needs remedial coursework, then the university must require that the student complete the remedial coursework before pursuing his or her chosen course of study (instead of just requiring that the student complete the remedial coursework).

 Fiscal Note (H-AM 2)(Illinois Student Assistance Commission)
 SB 2225 (H-AM 2) provides that there is no fiscal impact upon the MAP program for FY07. There will be an indeterminate fiscal impact in FY08 and thereafter, determined by how many MAP-eligible students complete these remedial courses and claim MAP awards.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (H-AM 1) (Board of Higher Education)
 Would not create or expand a state mandate affecting local government expenditures.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (H-AM 2) (Board of Higher Education)
 Would not create or expand a state mandate affecting local government expenditures.

House Floor Amendment No. 3
Deletes reference to:
110 ILCS 205/9.07
110 ILCS 947/35
Adds reference to:
110 ILCS 947/39 new

Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Higher Education Student Assistance Act. Requires the Illinois Student Assistance Commission to receive and consider applications for monetary grant assistance to benefit those students who will not receive Monetary Award Program grants. Among other conditions, provides that an applicant is eligible for a grant if he or she is enrolled at least half-time as a sophomore, junior, or senior and is from a family that had an adjusted gross income of less than $200,000 for the 2005 taxable year. Provides that grants are applicable to tuition and mandatory fees, with the grant amount not to exceed $500 per year or $250 per semester. Provides that grants may be awarded only for the Fall 2006 and Spring 2007 semesters, on a first-come, first-served basis. Requires the Commission to determine if sufficient funds are available from the sale of student loan assets, transaction processing, or refinancing to continue Monetary Award Program Plus beyond the Spring 2007 semester and to prepare a report for the Governor and General Assembly indicating whether funding is available and how it can be used to support the program. Effective July 1, 2006.
