Gates Foundation provides snapshot of today's American college student - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

Research by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation offers a statistical profile of college students in America and includes details that may surprise some administrators about who they are serving. The report found 62% of students are working full- or part-time while pursuing their degrees, and nearly as many (59%) are commuting to class from off-campus residences. Two-thirds of all college students are full-time, non-Pell Grant eligible students who attend four-year institutions. The number of students who exclusively take courses online (13%) may also be surprising to some.
