The purpose of this study was to discover whether academic procrastination decreases over time and if this decrease is explained by age, the academic year, or a combination of both. The Procrastination Assessment Scale Students (pas s) was administered to a sample of 105 university students who were divided into four separate groups depending on whether they were under or over 25 years and the academic year they were in. The results indicate that the procrastination level depends only on the age and not on the year the students were in and broaden the empirical knowledge about academic procrastination in college.
