The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between Academic Support and Life Satisfaction. Participants were 458 university students who voluntarily filled out a package of self-report instruments. Student Academic Support Scale and Satisfaction with Life Scale were used as measures. The relationships between student academic support and life satisfaction were examined using correlation analysis and stepwise regression analysis. Life satisfaction was predicted positively by informational support, esteem support, motivational support, and venting support. The results were discussed with respect to the related literature. Academic support has been shown to be an important variable for understanding life satisfaction and well-being.
