Almost partly of all part time employed college students are engaging sufficient hours to affect their academic performance and overall aspect of their education. The most common student report is that they can’t go in college if they did not do part time job.  Because of the increase tuition of college, Allied assistance- support  demoted to accumulate amity , and the students in the future face even greater pressure in paying for college.  There are 1,031 surveys of compilation about student employment completed across the United States, In 46% it shows all part time working students that work 25 or more hours per week and In 46% there are 42% of students reported that part time work affect their grades.( King; Tracey, Branon, Ellynne of, Retrieved last January 14, 2014)According to Dundes (2006) the crucial condition in analyzing the good or bad effects of work on the accomplishment in learning of students is their grades and he conclude that  because of time and energy are limited resources, jobs would detract from studying and be harmful to a student’s academic performance. According to The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) which is run by the U.S. Department of Education, found that students working 1-15 hours weekly have a significantly higher GPA than both students working 16 or more hours and students who don’t work at all. Students who are employed are significantly more likely to find it difficult to deal with their work and their studies at the same time, resulting anxiety and conflict around work and study commitments , and experiencing varied levels of stress in dealing with the demands on their time. One issue here is student employment having a direct impact on academic performance. (Paul,1982). Like what Paul (1982) reveal in his study, working is detrimental to academic performance in college. Another study obtained from the internet showed that the most frequently mentioned effects of student employment were not having enough time to do in depth work, doing limited reading,scrambling to finish assignments on time missing classes and focusing mainly on assessment task and assignments(Managing Study and Work, 2004). Such as effects are relatively having a negative impact on students academic performance.   According to Nonis and Hudson (2006)  Students spending less time studying and more time working are (two) trends that (all) colleges and universities will have to confront. Lowering academic standards by rewarding minimum effort and achievement (expecting less) is merely a short-term strategy, (but) one that will have negative long-term consequences. A more productive way to handle these concerns is to conduct empirical research to determine to what extent these trends will negatively impact the academic performance of college students and use the findings from these studies to improve our academic programs.Today’s college students are spending less time studying. According to UCLA’s Graduate School of Education and Information Studies found that only 34% of today’s entering freshmen have spent six or more hours per week outside of class on academic-related work (e.g., doing homework, studying)during their senior year in high school.The sample consisted of 276,449 students at 413 of the nation’s 4 year colleges and universities (over one fourth of entering freshmen in the United States), and the data were statistically adjusted to reflect responses of all first time, full-time students entering all four-year colleges and universities as freshmen in 2003. In fact, in 1987 when this question was asked of entering freshmen, 47.0% claimed they spent 6or more hours per week studying outside of class. Since then, the time spentstudying outside of class has declined steadily each year (Higher Education Research Institute, 2003)
