AUBURN, Ala. (WIAT) — Freshmen entering Auburn University have some of the highest ACT scores in the state. But a recent report by The Education Trust singles out Auburn for the university’s low number of students coming from low-income homes.
Auburn isn’t the only school in the state of Alabama mentioned. The other schools are Selma’s Concordia College and Bessemer’s ITT Technical Institute. Both rank in the bottom 5% of colleges for graduation. The report shows that 15% of college freshmen enrolled at those colleges fail to graduate.
