The objective of the study was to examine the relationship between time perspectives and the use of volitional strategies in school. University students from the Philippines participated in the study. Results indicated that past-positive and future time perspective positively predicted volitional strategies. Past-negative, present-fatalistic, and present-hedonistic time perspectives were not salient predictors of volitional strategies. Overall findings suggest that time perspectives are important individual difference variables that influence students’ academic outcomes. Implications are discussed.
