Different academic situations demand the use of specific thinking styles in order to achieve success in higher educational. The study aims to describe college students’ thinking styles and to relate them with academic achievement. The sample was composed of 225 college students representing diverse majors.

Results are discussed from theoretical and practical standpoints.
