This study explored how students’ involvement, religiosity, and peer influence affect the lifelong learning skill of college students as mediated by teacher support using structural equation modeling. A cross-sectional design was applied using survey questionnaires utilizing 593 randomly selected college students enrolled in a faith-based university. All statistical outputs were generated using SPSS version 23 and SMART PLS. Results revealed that more college students were involved in small groups, professional organizations, and campus sports programs for more than three semesters compared to other extracurricular activities. College students have friends who influence them and in their intellectual growth, attitude, values, and other aspects of influence and teachers show supported them academically, emotionally, and spiritually. They were also involved in different religious practices and perceived that their lifelong learning skills were developed during their stay in the university. This study concludes that teacher support fully mediates the influence of student involvement in extracurricular activities and the percieved lifelong learning skills but partially mediates with peer influence on lifelong learning skills. However, religiosity directly influences the perceived lifelong learning skills of the college students. Recommendations are discussed on how to enhance involvement, peer influence, religiosity, and the role of teachers to develop the lifelong learning skills of college students.
