This study examined the extent to which variance in college student achievement was explained by self-efficacy, motivation, study habits, extracurricular activity involvement, perceptions of social support and perceptions of support from faculty, as well as perceptions of university support. Participants were 195 college students from a large, urban university. Self-efficacy and organizational study habits played a significant role in college student achievement. Implications to help improve student outcomes are discussed.
