ILLINOIS STATE SENATE 58: Senate adopts legislation to help college students


By Press release submission | May 3, 2019

Illinois State Senate District 58 issued the following announcement on May 3.

College students may soon have an easier time transferring credits from one institution to another, as the Illinois Senate has advanced legislation sponsored by State Senator Paul Schimpf (R-Waterloo).

“The failure of credits to transfer is one of the greatest sources of frustration for students and parents in Illinois higher education,” said Schimpf. “This resolution helps us identify and resolve the problems that prevent full credit transfer.”

Senate Joint Resolution 22 is an initiative of the Higher Education Working Group, of which Senator Schimpf is a member. The legislation is aimed at getting the state’s higher education system in better compliance with the Illinois Articulation Initiative, which was an effort created to ease the transfer of students between colleges and universities. Schimpf’s legislation specifically directs the Illinois Board of Education and Community College Board to work together to identify any shortcomings in meeting the goals of that initiative.

The resolution is now in the Illinois House for consideration in that chamber.
