Getting There and Staying There: Low-income Students and Post-secondary Education by Patrice de Broucker, Senior Research Analyst with CPRN's Work Network, reviews the research on the determinants of access to post-secondary education by low-income students and finds the answer is more complex.

The research shows that financial considerations do play a role in the decision about whether to attend college or university, but they are not the only deciding factor, nor even the most important.
