Students who are parents face unique challenges when pursuing their degree. Not only do they have to juggle student demands but also continue to raise their family. There is limited research, however, on student parents pursuing higher education at four-year institutions. Research on student parents is often difficult and underreported by institutions which makes it a challenging and unique area that deserves more attention. This exploratory study focuses on three distinct aspects of these students' lives: (a) financial well-being and behaviors; (b) food insecurity; and (c) academic outcomes. A non-random sample of 300 students between the ages of 18 and 29, currently enrolled at a four-year institution, and with at least one minor child was collected by Qualtrics. These students represented 234 different colleges/universities in thirty-nine states as well as six foreign countries.
