Stay in school. It's a refrain weve heard time and time again. Sometimes, its not that easy to do. Listed here are the top reasons students drop out of college. Financial reasons With almost every degree comes financial misery. Everyone is entitled to a quality college education, but sometimes finding the money to get that education isnt easy.

Academic failure Its tough finding out theres more to college than parties and football games. Kids who coasted through high school sometimes hit college and are unprepared for the effort thats needed to succeed. Family problems Sadly, the world doesnt stop just because college starts. There are times when your personal life may interfere with your ability to finish a semester. Whether it is a loved ones illness, or a parents loss of employment that forces you into the work force, there are times when college has to be put on hold.
