Through cross-sectional analyses of enrollment outcomes in 2004 and 2013 along the dimensions of socioeconomic status and racialized background, this paper argues that regardless of academic profile, IHEs are more likely to enroll students from the upper socioeconomic quartile and least likely to enroll Black students. These findings are most pronounced at the most elite institutions, and the relationship reverses when looking at less elite institutions.
