ABSTRACT
An important problem is that general success level of the students in the colleges of agriculture is low and they are incompetent with their job after they graduate. The aim of this study was to determine the factors affecting the success of the students in the college of agriculture, Ataturk University. To this end, 743 students (70% of the total) were interviewed in 2004-2005 education year. The data were tested using X² independency test. In addition, analysis of the factors affecting the success of the students was conducted using Ordered Probit Model. Average grade was taken into consideration as an indicator for the success of student to determine the factors affecting the success and their significances. According to the results, significant positive relations were found between student success and departments, sex, marital status, OSS record, high school grade point average, study conditions and attendance while significant but negative relations were determined between success and age, class, accommodation and type of high schools graduated. Accordingly, it was suggested that students with high OSS score must be supported and encouraged to enroll to the colleges of agriculture.
