Common Misconceptions Regarding Student Employment

Perception
Reality

Students who work while attending school full-time struggle to keep up with their studies because of time management issues and they have a lower GPA than students who don’t work.

Working while attending school full-time increases the need for students to manage their time and thus helps students establish a more structured routine.

  • From 2006-2019, University of Iowa freshman students who worked between 1-20 hours per week had GPA 0.14 higher than their non-working counterparts. 
  • This same data is validated with national statistics. On average, students who work on campus maintain a higher GPA than those who don’t.

Having a student job affects the focus of students away from the classroom and can cause early drop-out rates.

No campus activity has shown as much positive influence on a students’ academic success and retention as campus employment. 

On‑campus employers are aware that the students they hire have a #1 priority of doing well in school; therefore, employers are flexible with students’ schedules. 

  • From 2006‑2019, University of Iowa data shows that student employees are retained at a 4.24% higher clip than their non-working peers.

With less time to focus on academics, student workers struggle to graduate in four years and take much longer to finish their degree requirements.

Student employees don’t just keep up, but far exceed the University of Iowa graduation rate average at both the 4 and 6-year levels.

  • Since 2006, 4-year graduation rates for students who work on campus are at a 2.53% higher level than the university average.
  •  The 6-year graduation rates have an even more significant increase with student employees graduating at a 3.33% higher level.

It’s just a student job…….

Student jobs develop skills future employers want. The UI STEP (Student to Employed Professional) program prepares students to articulate those skills.
