        The college admissions system is rigged against low-income applicants in many ways, said Levy, from the test prep wealthy students get to legacy admissions and so-called merit aid, which is frequently an attempt to attract middle- and upper-class students to attend one college instead of another.   When some college students first got the news that their school was canceling in-person classes due to the coronavirus outbreak, they broke out into spontaneous dining-hall dance parties, joked about nabbing dirt-cheap flights to Italy, and plotted elaborate pranks to dupe their professors over video chat..

Many high school graduates from low-income families head to a two-year community college rather than a four-year school, primarily due to economics.

Community college students paid on average $3, in tuition, but $1, for books and supplies — roughly the same cost for a private school where average tuition is $30, according to Matt Reichman, spokesman for Flat World Knowledge, an online textbook company working to increase college access and affordability.

The best resources for low-income students are college-based programs designed to increased persistence for under-served students.

One example is Student Support Services, a U.S. Department of Education program that provides academic advising, tutoring, and financial assistance for low-income, first-generation and homeless college students.

Many low income first-generation college students who are reading and doing math at a seventh or eighth grade level are admitted into college.

These findings should be compared with those in the companion report, Community College Low-Income and Minority Student Completion Study: Descriptive Statistics from the High School Cohort, which provides enrollment and eight-year completion rates for the younger cohort of students who graduated high school in Cited by:   Low-income students such as Atocha are only half as likely to graduate from college as their more affluent peers even when they attended top suburban high schools, according to.

Many of the low-income students Jack interviewed for his research questioned the sanity of anyone spending so much on a coat.
