This study aims to standardize the scale of self-control and self-management on Jordanian university students and identify the psychometric properties of the scale. Indicators of validity and reliability were extracted. An exploratory factor analysis was conducted. The scale was applied to a sample of 1045 students. Acceptable psychometric properties were found as the value of the Cronbach’s alpha coefficient reached 0.84, the Spearman and Guttman’s split-half coefficient was 0.754, and the results of the exploratory factor analysis showed that three factors whose Eigenvalues were greater than one with explained variance (52.34%) percent of the total variance. The first factor (self-monitoring), the second factor (self-evaluating), and the third factor (self-reinforcing) showed an appropriate degree of validity and reliability for the scale, as they confirmed the existence of a theoretical construct behind this scale, which is an acceptable indicator of the validity of the scale in the Jordanian environment
