Undergraduate drinking and academic performance: a prospective investigation with objective measures

Findings from previous prospective research suggest the association between alcohol use and undergraduate academic performance is negligible. This study was designed to address weaknesses of the past research by relying on objective measures of both drinking and academic performance.

Does heavy drinking affect academic performance in College? Findings from a prospective study of high achievers

This study examined the effects of heavy drinking, alcohol-related problems and drinking opportunities on academic performance (grade point average [GPA]) in a prospective cohort of college students attending the University of California at Berkeley.

AGP | Full text | The effect of alcohol use on academic performance of university students

Background: Alcohol use by students is a major public health problem, leading to the Secondhand Effects - decrease in academic performance, injuries, blackouts, alcohol dependence etc.

Aim: To determine the extent of alcohol use on academic performance of university students.

Conclusion: This study shows that alcohol use even in moderate doses leads to decrease in academic performance. The absence of any difference in academic performance among the non-alcohol and alcohol users on the 1st and 2nd semesters was probably conditioned by the large number of students (75% of all alcohol users) who reported alcohol use only in the university. This is because there is a time factor for alcohol effects to be manifested: dose-time response effect of alcohol use - negative effect of alcohol use on intellectual activities of students, using academic performance as a criterion, increases with increase in time and dose of alcoholic drinks.

Turns out this resource is only an abstract and I can't seem to find the full resource. Very little info available

Does drinking impair college performance? Evidence from a regression discontinuity approach

This paper examines the effect of alcohol consumption on student achievement. To do so, we exploit the discontinuity in drinking at age 21 at a college in which the minimum legal drinking age is strictly enforced. We find that drinking causes significant reductions in academic performance, particularly for the highest-performing students. This suggests that the negative consequences of alcohol consumption extend beyond the narrow segment of the population at risk of more severe, low-frequency, outcomes.

Alcohol consumption, sleep, and academic performance among college students

Alcohol consumption, sleep, and academic performance among college students | Uni Research | Scoop.it

Three independent lines of inquiry have found associations between alcohol use and academic performance, sleep and academic performance, and alcohol use and sleep. The present study bridges this research by examining the links among alcohol use, sleep, and academic performance in college students.
