This study examined the relationship between evaluations of academic support services and student athletes’ career decision-making self-efficacy. One hundred and fifty-eight NCAA athletes (68% male) from 11 Division I teams completed measures of satisfaction with their academic support services, career decision-making self-efficacy, general self-efficacy, and locus of control. Results indicated that evaluations of academic support services were positively related to levels of career decision-making self-efficacy. In addition, this relationship was moderated such that student athletes with lower levels of general self-efficacy and internal locus of control benefited more from positive experiences with academic support services. Limitations and implications are discussed.
