Almost half of community college students in the US could drop out because of a lack of finances, according to new research.
A survey of nearly 100,000 community college students from 177 institutions across the country found that 47 per cent might have to withdraw because of financial concerns. Meanwhile, more than a quarter (27 per cent) said that the information they received from their college about financial assistance was inadequate.
