For this purpose, a questionnaire containing fifty-nine items was administered to the students of Jordan University of Science and Technology. The results of this study were analyzed by using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). The results indicated that determination strategies were the most frequently used vocabulary learning strategies among JUST students. On the other hand, metacognitive strategies were found to be the least frequently used vocabulary learning strategies among the students.
