This paper investigates the effect of a psycho-educational group that teaches study strategies and supports perceived self-efficacy among college students. The study followed a within-group, pre-experimental design, with a pretest/posttest evaluation measuring quantitative data of perceived self-efficacy, as well as a demographic questionnaire. An instrument with high reliability was used to measure self-efficacy on two college students in an open group promoting inclusion of a diverse population. It was estimated that self-efficacy would increase after a total of six one-hour group counseling session were attended. Results showed improvement, however were statistically insignificant due largely to a low sample size.
