FACTORS AFFECTING THE ADHERENCE OF COLLEGE STUDENTS TO SCHOOL POLICIES IN JOSE MARIA COLLEGE
This paper presents findings of a descriptivecorrelational-comparative study that was conducted in 2015-2016 which examined the factors affecting the adherence of college students to school policies in Jose Maria College. A survey was conducted among 240 respondents of which the researcher chose forty (40) from each college namely: College of Teacher Education, College of Engineering Education, College of Information Technology Education, College of Arts and Sciences, College of Business Education, and College of Criminal Justice Education. The findings showed that the respondents were moderately aware and highly conscious with the school policies. It was suggested that because college students were not highly aware with the school policies, there is a need to conduct more orientations about the school policies and disseminate then accordingly. The study also confirmed that there was no variation in measuring the difference of adherence to school policies in terms of profile of the respondents. Furthermore, the awareness and rule consciousness were
significantly correlated with adherence of the college students to the school policies.
