Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

Illinois Student Assistance Commission.
(a) There is established the Illinois Student Assistance Commission,
consisting of 10 persons to be appointed by the Governor with the
consent of the Senate. The membership of the Commission shall consist of one
representative of the institutions of higher learning
operated by the State; one representative of the private institutions of
higher learning located in the State; one representative of the public
community colleges located in the State; one representative of the public
high schools located in the State; 5 citizens of the State chosen for
their knowledge of and interest in higher education, but not employed
by, professionally affiliated with, or members of the governing boards
of any institution of higher learning located in the State, and one
student member selected from nominations submitted to the Governor by
multi-campus student organizations, including but not limited to, the recognized advisory committee of students of the Illinois Community College Board, the
recognized advisory committee of students of the Board of Higher Education, and
the recognized advisory committee of students of the Federation of Independent
Illinois Colleges and Universities. The Governor shall designate one member,
other than the student member, as chairman. Each member of the Commission,
including the student member, shall serve without compensation, but shall be
reimbursed for expenses necessarily incurred in performing the member's duties
under this Act. Subject to a requirement that Commission members in office
effective date of this amendatory Act of 1995 may serve the full term to
which they were appointed, the appointment of Commission members to terms that
commence on or after that effective date shall be made in a manner that gives
effect at the earliest possible time to the change that is required by this
amendatory Act in the representative
composition of the Commission's membership.
(b) The term of office of each member, other than the student
member, is 6 years from July 1 of the year of appointment, and until the member's
successor is appointed and qualified. If a member's tenure of office,
other than that of the student member, is terminated for any reason
before the member's term has expired, the Governor shall fill the vacancy by the
appointment of a person who has the same representative status as the
person whose term has been so terminated, and the new appointee shall
hold office only for the remainder of that term and until a successor
is appointed and qualified.
The term of the student member shall be for 2 years from July 1 of each
odd-numbered year and until a successor is appointed and qualified. If the tenure of the student member is terminated for any
reason, the vacancy shall be filled in the same manner as heretofore provided
for a regular term of office appointment of the student member. The new
student appointee shall hold office for the remainder of that term and until a successor is appointed and qualified. A student appointee's status on the Commission may not be considered in determining the student appointee's eligibility for programs administered by the Commission.
(c) In accordance with the provisions of the State Universities Civil
Service Act, the Commission shall employ a professionally qualified person as
the Executive Director of the Commission, and such other employees as may be
necessary to effectuate the purposes of this Act.
(d) The Commission shall meet at least once in each fiscal year, and
may meet at other times which the Chairman may designate by giving at
least 10 days' written notice to each member.
