The [Monday] Papers

I have a deadline today; I hope to finally have The Luis & Chuy Show tomorrow as well as an update of The Political Odds from the Beachwood Bookmaking Bureau.

Meanwhile . . .

"Students at the City Colleges of Chicago, the state's largest and most diverse community-college system, are eligible for a guaranteed admission program to the University of Illinois' flagship campus in Urbana under an expanded partnership this fall," the Champaign News-Gazette reports.

Gee, that sounds good.

"The UI Chicago has had a longstanding transfer agreement with City Colleges, but new partnerships were recently signed with the Urbana and Springfield campuses to make it easier for more Chicago students to transfer to those schools."

Yay!

"Currently, only a fraction of City College system graduates enroll at the Urbana campus - just 30 in 2016-17, about 3 percent of the campus' total transfer students, said Andy Borst, director of undergraduate admissions."

Well that number certainly needs boosting.

"Students who enroll in Chicago City Colleges will be guaranteed admission to any of the UI's three universities if they meet campus admission requirements and complete the mandatory community-college credits, officials said.

"Technically, the same is true for most transfer students, except in highly competitive engineering, business and LAS programs, Borst said. But the new program will provide intensive advising services to ensure students are taking the right classes to get into the school of their choice, he said.

"And top transfers will be eligible for scholarships through a new pilot program offered by the UI. Five scholarships of $2,500 a year for up to two years will be available initially - two to Urbana, two to Chicago and one to Springfield - and that number will eventually double, officials said."

Wait . . . just five scholarships (and just two to Urbana, which is championing the effort) of $2,500 a year for two years are available? That's three strikes - the just five part, the $2,500 part (annual tuition is more than $30,000), and the for just two years part.

What?

"The initiatives are designed to expand educational opportunities for Chicago-area students and improve diversity at the Urbana campus, UI President Tim Killeen said Thursday."

Not by much!
