COLLEGE SUCCESS2IntroductionSuccess in college can be attributed to a variety of different factors. This proposal will beexamining the relationship between socioeconomic status (SES) and self-management skills withits connection to college success. The academic success of a college student isrelated to one’ssocioeconomic status and their self-management skills. Socioeconomic status has an existingimpact prior to college and is fairly prominent during college. Those of lower SES may havelimited financial resources, connections, and a more limited plan post-graduation; whereas thoseof higher SES are blessed with less financial strain, more resources economically and may usepersonal connections to gain employment post-graduation. Self-management skills are helpful inexamining a student’sself-sufficiency and ability to provide or care for themselves with minorassistance.The two predictors of this project will be socioeconomic status and obtained self-management skills with an outcome of being properly prepared for society beyond the collegeexperience. Students with life skills have the ability to maintain responsibilities, good physical,and mental health, have effective decision-making skills, which are useful for creating good habitsand eliminating stress (Kim et. al., 2010). Income and occupation are affecting factors of astudent’s socioeconomic status and can be linked to surplus or lack of resources and financialburden (Saifi & Mehmood, 2011). Through interviews and observations of college student’s self-management, specifically decision making and problem solving, and surveys of student’spreparedness postgrad, this data will be collected to test the proposal hypothesis.Both of these
