Students that work while in school have higher grade point averages than students who do not work. The number of students that work while in college has increased over the years. In this study 28 participants were asked to full out a ten question survey that pertaining to the number of hours they worked and their academic performance. Then the results were compared to determine the correlation between the student grade point average and the number of hours they worked. The results found that there was a positive correlation between the two. It seemed that the more hours the students worked the higher their grade point averages.
