Les difficultés financières peuvent constituer un obstacle important pour les études postsecondaires. Des chercheurs de disciplines différentes ont tenté de comprendre la relation existante entre les difficultés financières et la persévérance aux études postsecondaires. Dans le présent papier, nous présentons un état de la question sur les difficultés financières et la persévérance aux études postsecondaires, principalement au Canada et aux États-Unis. Notre étude a permis de conclure que trois principaux éléments liés à la situation financière des étudiants affectent leur persévérance aux études. Il s'agit des imperfections de l'aide financière aux études, du travail pendant les études et du revenu des parents. Ces facteurs financiers qui influencent la persévérance aux études peuvent également affecter la réussite dans les études postsecondaires.
