Abstract

In the 2011–2012 academic year, U.S. colleges and universities enrolled 3.5 million students who are also single parents, a group that represents 15.2 percent of the undergraduate population. This growing demographic group of post-traditional students must balance academic, family, and work responsibilities at the same time.
