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.

(from Ch. 111, par. 8351-30)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2027)
(a) Applications for original licensure shall be made to the Department
in writing on forms or electronically as prescribed by the Department and shall be accompanied
by the appropriate documentation and the required fee, which shall not be refundable. Any application shall require such information as, in the
judgment of the Department, will enable the Department to pass on the
qualifications of the applicant for licensing.
(b) Applicants have 3 years from the date of application to complete the
application process. If the application has not been completed within 3 years,
the application shall be denied, the fee shall be forfeited, and the applicant
must reapply and meet the requirements in effect at the time of reapplication.
(c) A license shall not be denied to an applicant because of the applicant's
race, religion, creed, national origin, political beliefs or activities, age,
sex, sexual orientation, or physical disability that does not affect a person's ability to practice with reasonable judgment, skill, or safety.
