The purpose of the present study was to examine the relationship between academic achievement, as measured by high school GPA and cumulative undergraduate GPA, peer tutoring, academic self-concept, and personal self-concept. A total of 50 students (treatment=29, control=21) from a university in Western, NY participated in this study. The results of this study did not yield significant results. In other words, time spent in tutoring, academic self-concept, personal self-concept, and high school GPA did not account for significant variance in cumulative undergraduate GPA. Implications of the study and suggestions for future research are discussed.
