Working While Enrolled

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