CHICAGO (AP) - The University of Illinois has expanded its guaranteed admission program with City Colleges of Chicago .

U of I President Tim Killeen announced Thursday that eligible City Colleges alumni will be guaranteed admission at any of the three campuses of the state’s flagship university.

The U of I and the seven campuses of City Colleges combined educate more than 80,000 students a year.

The agreement guarantees U of I admission to any City Colleges student who meets the requirements of the desired campus and completes the necessary community college credits.

Killeen also announced a pilot scholarship program. City Colleges transfers will be able to compete for five $2,500-a-year scholarships for up to two years.

Killeen says he hopes to eventually add five scholarships.
