  Introduction: identifying of influencing factors on educational performance has specific importance about the role of these factors, there are numerous controversies. So, this study was carried out in order to assessing the predictors of academic performance in midwifery alumni of kashan university of medical sciences.

  Methods: in this cross sectional study all the midwifery alumni of kaums from 1995 until the end of 2003(n=76) were selected via census method. The questionnaire including demographic data, admission criteria, educational background and academic performance status was used. Data were analyzed by using independent Mann-Whitney U, and stepwise multivariate linear regression analysis.

  Results: Findings show that being native (p<0.002), lack of the temporary transfer background to other universities (p<0.038), lower age (p<0.01) and higher high school grade point average (p<0.0001) had the positive effect on academic performance. Regression analysis showed that %43.6 of the observed variance in the status of academic performance is determined by 2 variables including HGPA and residence place (F=26.242, p<0.0001) and HGPA explains %35 of the total variance alone.

  Conclusion: with regard to the predictor role of educational background and residence place in academic performance it’s proposed to consider HGPA and native selection in the acceptance of university students.
