A new survey reveals that while 38 percent of students are somewhat or very worried they will not graduate on time, students also say their campus app helps them stay on top of their academic responsibilities.

The 2017 Student Life and Technology survey comes from DubLabs, a provider of personalized campus mobile applications focused on the student experience.

The survey aims to understand today’s postsecondary student experience and it reveals potential barriers to graduation and how students are leveraging campus resources to stay on track.

When asked what barriers might prevent them from graduating, students cited:
● Challenging curriculum (35 percent)
● Financial issues (27 percent)
● Additional responsibilities including work and family (18 percent)
● Lack of support/guidance from administration/faculty (8 percent)
