This study examined the relationships among academic and psychological attitudes and academic achievement of first-year students. The College Resilience Scale, the Academic Motivation Scale, the College Self-Efficacy Inventory, and the University Environment Scale were administered to 164 first-year undergraduate students enrolled at a large RU/VH university in the northeastern United States. Only two variables, race and resilience, were significantly related to first-semester grade point average; however, findings indicated significant relationships among the core variables in this study, specifically academic motivation, resilience, and self-efficacy. The implications of these results for research and practice are explored. (Contains 4 tables.)
