Abstract This study aims to develop a product or service that can reduce academic procrastination among college students. The current literature suggests that there is a gap in research; existing techniques are debatable and no scientific research appears to be available that tests the success of existing products (such as time management planners). The method of approach for this study is to learn about the experiences of college students and their specific manifestations of procrastination. A convenience sample of college students will be used to conduct product development testing of the design. This thesis work is expected to have important applications to product design, and also disciplines that concern student well-being such as academic counseling and self-regulation. Keywords: academic procrastination, college students, time management
