(110 ILCS 979/15)
Sec. 15. Creation of Illinois prepaid tuition program. There is created the Illinois prepaid tuition program to be administered by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission. This program is to be administered so that the full cost of tuition and mandatory fees at Illinois public universities and Illinois community colleges may be paid in advance of enrollment through the prior purchase of an Illinois prepaid tuition contract. The Commission may enter into contracts as may be necessary to provide for administration of the program and shall develop and implement rules and regulations necessary for the efficient administration of the program.
All reasonable charges incidental to the administration of the program by the Commission shall be paid in the initial start-up period for the program's operation from the General Revenue Fund, pursuant to appropriations made for that purpose by the General Assembly. Those charges and expenses in subsequent years shall be paid exclusively from the Illinois Prepaid Tuition Trust Fund established by Section 35 of this Act.
