The present study aimed at identifying the causal attribution of higher education students of different programs with respect to successfulness. The study was conducted on 1424 undergraduate and post graduate students of different colleges and universities of Punjab. The Revised Causal Dimension Scale (CDSII) developed by McAuley et al. (1992) was used to take causal attributions of the higher education students for their success or failure. It has been found that majority of the UG and PG level students who perceived themselves as unsuccessful attributed efforts for their failure and the who perceived themselves as successful attributed study habits for their success.
