institutions listed below treat CLC students as in-district residents by giving students equal consideration in admission to
limited enrollment programs (within limits set forth by joint agreement) and by charging them in-district tuition rates. All
programs have been planned with the assistance of citizen’s advisory committees to meet local and regional employment needs.
They have also been planned in conformity with the Illinois Community College Board, the Illinois Board of Higher Education,
