2024 Update on Legacy Preference

Updated: Feb 27

Legacy Preference is the admissions practice of giving a weighted advantage to college applicants with family members who are alumni. 

It is discriminatory and perpetuates racial and socio-economic inequities. 

At least 27% of CT’s 4-yr colleges use this admissions practice.

It’s time for it to end.

The Higher Education and Employment Advancement Committee will hear testimony on a bill to address this issue on Thursday, February 29, 2022 at 1pm.
