Working While Enrolled

This study focuses on examining the roles that student employment plays in predicting students’ college success. It makes use of the same data as CAPSEE’s Ohio project. The research team will first provide a descriptive analysis of how extensive employment while studying is among Ohio students. In the second part of the analysis, the research team will attempt to identify the effects of such employment on subsequent college success. Additionally, researchers are interested in determining whether concurrent employment undermines students’ success in college.
