“Despite the belief that most students attend college full time and on their parents’ dime, the study finds 45 percent of those at four-year colleges work more than 20 hours a week, as do 60 percent at community colleges. More than a quarter of community college students work more than 35 hours a week. More than half of those who leave school before getting a degree do so because of work responsibilities.”
