Community Colleges Open the Door to Selective UniversitiesOctober 29, 2019 |

When it comes to getting into a selective university, high school GPA and test scores typically play the most important role.
But in a recent study, we show another way to attend a selective university: transfer from a community college.
This alternative option is important for students who are minority, low-income, and underprepared academically for higher education. Students from these particular groups are less likely to gain admission and enroll at a selective university.
