Abstract: The study examined the impact of advance organizer treatments on the college students. Static-group comparison design was used and the population of the study was 95 college students. Split-level classes were used and the classes were made up of undergraduate and graduate students. The participants were randomly assigned to treatment groups. Three groups received advance organizer treatments and the fourth group served as a comparison or control group and received no advance organizer treatment. The findings indicated that the three treatment groups out-performed the control group, which received no advance organizer. The results did revealed that there was statistical significant difference between the graduate and undergraduate students based on their mean scores; graduate students scored significantly higher in average score than the undergraduate students did.
