    The socio-economic crisis of the mid-1980s experienced by Cameroon has had multiple consequences including unemployment and deterioration of study and supervision conditions in universities. The current situation of universities in Cameroon is characterized by low success rates. The purpose of this study is to investigate the determinants of the success rate of the student in universities of Cameroon. To achieve this, a survey was conducted with 415 students from universities of the city of Yaoundé. The data show that the living conditions, visiting the university library and the PhD/Doctorate degree as the highest level of certificate the student intends to obtain, have a positive and significant impact on its success rate.
