Abstract: This study investigates and discusses the use of information and communication technology in universities and its impact on College Students academic performance. The study also examined the moderating effects of gender, GPA and students major on the relationship between ICT and academic achievement. Using quantitative research methods and a sample size of 1000 students, data on ICT adoption by universities and the relative performance of students from four Saudi universities were collected. The structural equation model is selected to determine the effectiveness of the research model. As a research tool, moment structural analysis (Amos) is specially used for structural equation modeling and path analysis. The survey results show that there areexists a relationship between ICT adoption and academic performance in a conservative environment. An additional finding also stated that ICT adoption resulted in the improvement of the performance of female students more than the male. However, students’ IT major was found to be making no impact on students’ academic achievement. A discussion of findings, limitations, and suggestions for future research has been provided in the study. Finally, it also provides implications of the current study to the existing knowledge.
