I sometimes wonder whether insisting on applicants having a 4-year degree is more a way to weed out the riff-raff than to get fully-qualified candidates. Not necessarily my opinion, but you can imagine some people thinking that someone with a degree is less likely to be dishonest/lazy/criminal, etc. Despite decades of equality and fairness legislation, there's still a great deal of 'it's not what you know...' when getting a job, especially in a close-knit sector like 'tech'.
