Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 50. Admissions denial; reference to Act. If an institution denies admission to an applicant for an academic year, then, in any letter or other communication the institution provides to the applicant notifying the applicant of that denial, the institution may not reference the provisions of this Act, including using a description of a provision of this Act such as "the top 10% automatic admissions law", as a reason the institution is unable to offer admission to the applicant, unless the number of applicants for admission to the institution for that academic year who qualify for automatic admission under Section 15 of this Act is sufficient to fill 100% of the institution's enrollment capacity designated for first-time resident undergraduate students.

    (Text of Section after amendment by P.A. 102-187)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on July 1, 2027)
    Sec. 50. Admissions denial; reference to Act.
    (a) If an institution denies admission to an applicant for an academic year, then, in any letter or other communication the institution provides to the applicant notifying the applicant of that denial, the institution may not reference the provisions of this Act, including using a description of a provision of this Act such as "the top 10% automatic admissions law", as a reason the institution is unable to offer admission to the applicant, unless the number of applicants for admission to the institution for that academic year who qualify for automatic admission under Section 15 of this Act is sufficient to fill 100% of the institution's enrollment capacity designated for first-time resident undergraduate students.
    (b) For purposes of determining enrollment capacity, priority in the admission of applicants to an institution must be given to applicants who are residents of this State. Admission to an institution may not be denied to an applicant who is a State resident based on the institution's enrollment capacity unless 100% of the enrollment capacity is filled exclusively by students who are State residents.
