Survey: Colleges Prefer Non-financial Aid Students

Your child's chances of getting into college could come down to dollars and cents.

A new survey, conducted by Inside Higher Ed, found admissions directors are taking a closer look at a student's ability to pay.
And recruiting students who don't need financial aid appears to be a high priority.
The study found 10% of four-year colleges are admitting full-pay students with lower grades and scores compared to other admitted applicants.

It also highlighted the push to admit out of state and international students, who pay higher tuition.
