Work and College Students: The Impact of Stress
Factors on Academic Performance
This paper examined the effect of both time spent studying and time spent working on academic performance. Stress, Procrastination, Detachment from the University General Self-Efficacy and Social Activity were measured using five scales.

The number of hours worked per week was also found to be positively related to academic performance. However, stress was found to be negatively related to academic performance. But no significant relationship was found between hours of sleep per night and academic performance. Keywords: stress, academic performance, sleep, OGPA
