Community College Students Working Full- or Part-Time

Due to the rising cost of tuition, family responsibilities, and the high costs of living expenses, many low-income students must work while they are in school. 60 percent of community college students work more than 20 hours per week and over 25 percent work more than 35 hours per week.
