ABSTRACT
Eighty students (11 males, 69 females) reported on how recently and frequently the engaged in different sexual activities to measure sexual activity. Students reported their midterm GPA, amount of hours spent studying per week, opinion of their academic performance, and the amount of credit hours they were taking to measure academic performance. It was hypothesized that students who are sexually active will perform differently academically than students who are not sexually active. It was further hypothesized that students who are sexually active and in relationships will perform differently than students who are sexually active and not in relationships. In each case the study failed to reject the null hypothesis.
