Abstract. In order to provide resources to better enhance minority college experiences, it is imperative that factors contributing to their success be identified. This study investigated the relationship between self-efficacy and social support on college adaptation of minority and non-minority female and male college students. Three-hundred-sixty-nine participants completed measures of self-efficacy, social support, and satisfaction with the college environment. Qualitative analysis of participant career goals and stated motivations for persisting in college were conducted.
