Student perception of the impact of financial aid on student career preparation activities that improve career readiness
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT REQUEST OF AUTHOR.] Students continue to go to college to seek additional education and see that it will lead to a higher income throughout their life. Students often use student financial aid and work to pay for their education. Employers identify that students do not have the skills needed to succeed in the job market. This study found that non-tradition students and females have significantly more debt than traditional students and male students. The study also found that non-traditional students are less likely to participate in career building activities outside of the classroom. It also found that students are worried about their financial future, and they would like to participate in more career-building activities, but financial constraints can impact their ability to do so.
Access is limited to the campuses of the University of Missouri
