In increasing self-confidence, the role of the family is required as the main factor that encourages students to succeed.

The data analysis method used is Partial Least Square (PLS). Partial Least Square (PLS) is a component or variant-based Structural Equation Model (SEM) model. Partial Least Square (PLS) is a variant-based Structural Equation Model (SEM) model.The results of this study state that 46.7% of students' self-confidence variations in completing a thesis are influenced by family support while the rest is influenced by other factors. In addition, emotional support has a significant effect on student self-confidence in doing a thesis with a p-value of 0.000. Thus, it can be concluded that emotional support becoming the form of family support that played the most important role in increasing student self-confidence.
