(110 ILCS 57/20)
Sec. 20. Admissions decision. The information collected under this Act as a result of the criminal history records check must be considered by the requesting medical school in determining whether or not to officially admit a matriculant. Upon a medical school's evaluation of a matriculant's criminal history records check, a matriculant who has been convicted of a violent felony conviction or adjudicated a sex offender may be precluded from gaining official admission to that medical school; however, a violent felony conviction or an adjudication as a sex offender shall not serve as an automatic bar to official admission to a medical school located in Illinois.
