A student might have to drop out and get a job to provide for younger siblings or a parent. This would be an understandable reason to not continue college, but is very specific to certain people or families. Another personal case of why an individual would drop out is college is it is just not the right fit for their life. College does teach valuable life skills and provides an advanced education for those who need it, yet some professions do not require a degree.

But for right now giving students more information about their debt may help students say no to loans. Borrowing less may make it harder for students to graduate if, for instance, they spend more time working and less time studying.
