Este trabajo indaga en los criterios de eficiencia y equidad de la financiación de la educación superior en Colombia, en un contexto de competencia por cupos limitados y desigualdad de oportunidades en el acceso a estudios de calidad. Su principal objetivo es determinar los efectos de los mecanismos de financiación a la demanda en el acceso a la educación superior para individuos entre 17 y 31 años, considerando tanto a los matriculados como a quienes no continúan con sus estudios postobligatorios. La aproximación empírica es realizada mediante la estimación de un modelo de elección discreta tipo probit con selección de muestra a partir de datos transversales proporcionados por la encuesta de calidad de vida. Los resultados dan evidencia de los determinantes socioeconómicos de la educación superior y de la influencia del crédito educativo, de tal manera que pertenecer a hogares con ingresos altos así como tener padres con educación superior influencia positivamente el acceso a estudios universitarios. Se concluye que las becas y los subsidios no son determinantes en el acceso a la educación superior y que los créditos educativos son el instrumento de financiación más importante para aumentar la probabilidad de acceder a la universidad.
