This study examined the relationship of program factors (advising relationship and program climate) and personal factors (social support, procrastination, life stressors, finances, and student classification) to dissertation self-efficacy in counselor education doctoral students. Participants included 157 (N=157) counselor education doctoral students who were enrolled full-time or part-time in CACREP-accredited doctoral programs. Empirically-validated instruments were used to collect data through a web-based survey. Results of the study showed that the factors of advising relationship, student classification, and procrastination accounted for 25.1% of the variance in dissertation self-efficacy. Program climate, life stressors, finances, and social support had no effect on dissertation self-efficacy. The study’s results indicated that the following conditions led to the highest levels of dissertation self-efficacy: an advisor-advisee working alliance characterized by a strong connection between the two, a participant classified as a doctoral candidate in the program, and a lesser tendency to procrastinate.
