 9        (a)  For purposes of this Act, the following shall not be
10    considered to be a private business and vocational school:
11             (1)  Any eleemosynary institution.
12             (2)  Any religious institution.
13             (3)  Any  public educational institution exempt from

16        subject  offered  by  an  employer provided no tuition is
17        charged and such instruction is offered only to employees
18        of such employer.
19             (5)  Any  educational  institution  which   on   the
20        effective date of this amendatory Act of 1984 or which on
21        January  2,  2001  enrolls  a majority of its students in

                            -2-      LRB093 11111 NHT 13733 a
 1        the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the
 2        North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, and is
 3        regulated by the Illinois Board of Higher Education under
 4        the Private College Act or the Academic  Degree  Act,  or
 5        which  is exempt from such regulation under either of the
 6        foregoing  Acts  solely  for   the   reason   that   such
 7        educational institution was in operation on the effective
 8        date of either such Act.
 9             (6)  Any  institution  and  the  franchisees of such
10        institution  which  offer   exclusively   a   course   of
11        instruction in income tax theory or return preparation at
12        a  total  contract  price  of no more than $400, provided
13        that the total annual enrollment of such institution  for
14        all such courses of instruction exceeds 500 students, and
15        further  provided  that  the total contract price for all
16        instruction offered to a student in any one calendar year
17        does not exceed $400.  For each calendar year after 1990,
18        the total contract price shall be adjusted,  rounded  off
19        to  the  nearest  dollar,  by  the same percentage as the
20        increase or  decrease  in  the  general  price  level  as
21        measured  by  the  consumer  price  index  for  all urban
22        consumers for the United States, or its successor  index,
23        as  defined  and officially reported by the United States
24        Department of Labor, or its successor agency.  The change
25        in the index shall be that  as  first  published  by  the
26        Department  of  Labor  for  the calendar year immediately
27        preceding the year in which the total contract  price  is
28        calculated.
29        (b)  An institution exempted under subsection (a) of this
30    Section must file with the Superintendent an annual financial
31    report to demonstrate continued compliance by the institution
32    with the requirements on which the exemption is based.
