The study examines multiple intelligences predictive ability in self-organized learning skills and academic achievement among students of School of Education at Al-Quds Open University (QOU). To achieve its goals, the researcher applied two tools which proved to be valid and reliable on a selected stratified sample consisted of (328) students from school of education at QOU – Hebron Branch. The results revealed positive statistically significant relationship between multiple intelligences and self-organized learning skills. In addition, it reflected an existence of positive statistically significant relationship between multiple intelligences as a whole and all types of intelligence (verbal, visual, bodily, and intrapersonal) with academic achievement. Moreover, it demonstrated that intrapersonal intelligence is the most predictive of self-organized learning skills which followed by verbal intelligence and interpersonal intelligence. However, intrapersonal intelligence was the only indicator or predictor for academic achievement.The study recommended the need to take advantage of the theory of multiple intelligences in developing university counseling programs, designing courses, evaluating students' achievement, and training academic staff on how to use them in face-to-face and virtual meetings
