Required entrance exams boosts likelihood of college enrollment

Requiring students to take college entrance exams during high school increases their likelihood of attending a four-year college, according to an article in The Chronicle of Higher Education. More than 25 states require students to take either the ACT or SAT.

Researchers argue that removing the cost barrier opens the door to higher education for underserved students, though the cost of attending college continues to pose a problem for students from low-income families.
