Highly Selective Colleges and Universities
Selective Colleges and Universities Are Expanding Access for Students
For those seeking the American Dream, a college degree has acted as the great equalizer in society, leading graduates to higher-paying career opportunities. A college education has never been more valuable than today! Many colleges and universities nationwide have renewed their commitment to recruiting and supporting students from lower-income, first generation, or diverse backgrounds. At PXU, our goal is to increase well-matched post-secondary options for all students.
