TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas could soon join a growing number of states nationwide in providing free college admission testing to high school students.

A provision in the new school finance bill passed Sunday would set aside $2.8 million for one ACT test and three WorkKeys vocational assessments, per student statewide.

When sifting through applications, universities look closely at the ACT scores of applicants, and those with no score to show stand at a disadvantage. With the cost of an ACT at $62.50, writing portion included, some Kansans can’t buy the chance they need to get noticed by universities.
