A new report by the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center states students who attend college part time have a smaller chance of getting a degree or certificate in comparison to students who go to school full time, according to CBS.

The study found students who attend college full time within six years have a 78 percentage chance of getting a degree; part-time students only had a 22 percent chance.

As a whole, however, U.S. college graduation rates have stalled. Only 56 percent of students who enrolled as first-time students in 2007 have earned a degree; that number is the same for those who started college in 2006.
