The Law In The State Of Illinois
An undocumented student refers to students who were born outside the United States, but have lived in the country for a significant portion of their lives, and
who reside here with no documentation stating U.S. citizenship or legal residency. House Bill 60-In-State Tuition for Undocumented Students (Signed into law as Public Act 093-0007) states that undocumented students in Illinois may receive in-state tuition if they meet the following conditions:
This does not guarantee admission to a state community college or university. Students must meet admissions requirements and must contact the community college and/or the university directly.
Professions that require state licensing or certification require background checks, a social security number and state examinations. If you are undocumented, it may be difficult to pursue any type of state licensing or certification. Some of the professions that require a state license or certificate are in health care, education, and government. Potential friendly careers include, business ownership, hotel management, restaurants, journalism, computers, manual labor, trade fields, radio and TV broadcasting, administrative positions, and cash based business.
