Nowadays, the access to universities in Ecuador is a growing factor due to the implementation of the Organic Law of Higher Education, which favored the access and influenced on the quality of education at the university level. The purpose of this article is to analyze the causes that limit access and generate desertion, and to demonstrate the financing alterna?tives that could contribute to overcome desertion. The induction-deduction method was used, compil?ing information from primary and secondary sources. A sample was selected consisting of students from the universities located in Cuenca; the questionnaire technique was applied and the information was supple mented with interviews and bibliographical sources. The main results show the different reasons that cause the problem, such as high tuition costs and the loss of subjects. The few and different ways that exist to reduce desertion were identified along to the lack of information that students have about different benefits. In response to the problem, it is proposed to establish policies linked to the increase of alternatives and to improve the communication between students and institutions that offer scholarships and financial services
