ABSTRACT
Previous research indicated that short sleepers (those who typically sleep 6 or fewer hours out of every 24) report more symptoms of psychological maladjustment than do long sleepers (those who sleep more than 9 hours). The presence of psychological maladjustment symptoms have been found to negatively affect academic performance. Hence, it was hypothesized that short sleepers would report lower grade-point averages than those classified as long sleepers. A college student sample's self-reported typical sleep length and grade-point averages were explored. It was found that short sleepers reported significantly lower overall grade-point averages than did long sleepers. Directions for future research are offered.
