SOLEX is willing to consider all candidates for enrollment without regard to age, ancestry, race, creed, color, religion, ethnic origin, gender, veteran status, sexual orientation, marital status, disability or cultural beliefs. Illinois law (225 ILCS 57 §45) states that the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation may refuse to award a license to practice to individuals whose physical or mental illness results in the inability to practice the profession with reasonable judgment, skill, or safety. Therefore, the suitability of individuals with a disability/medical condition who apply to a SOLEX career program will be made on a case-to-case basis. In order to achieve optimal educational results, applicants with a physical or other disability or illness that contraindicates attending SOLEX will be requested to visit their doctor to gain medical approval, in writing, for enrollment.​
