Challenges emanating from home can cause non-completion of college education by students. Non-completion of college education is a menace to college students, parents or guardians and the institutions themselves that an urgent solution is inevitable. This paper will discuss such problems faced by college students, especially at home, and how these problems impact their education attainment. The paper will also provide possible recommendation that can help curb the identified problems.
Non-completion is one of the most serious problems for most tertiary students today. There are several barriers that college students face, particularly the minority students, in their attempt to bridge the gap between their aspiration and college degree attainment.
