In this article we test the hypothesis in which the democratization policies for higher education adopted in Brazil had reduced the strength of the association between socioeconomic background and the entry chances in this educational level. For this, we used microdata from Monthly Employment Survey (IBGE), and we followed the educational trajectory of the individuals aged 16 to 30 for a year in the following periods: 2002/2003 and 2008/2009. The results show that this hypothesis holds for residents in the metropolitan areas. Results suggest that educational expansion policies may be decisive in reducing the inequality of opportunities.
