1 INTRODUCTION Decision making is one of the essential things in the path way of the life of a student especially in choosing a course in College. There will be a lot of factors that will affect the preference of course of students since there are a lot of things to consider. These variables may contain job opportunity, favoured course of the parents, peer’s impact a nd individual decision (Alcantara et al., 2014). In addition, financial aspect, choice of school, individual’s experience, and the ability of a student will a lso be considered in choosing a College course. According to Alba et al. (2010), one major factor why it is hard for students to choose which school they would attend to during college is the prestige of school. Usually a students or a graduate reflects the school the student came from, if the school has a good reputation or the school has quality education. The Senior High School students are given a longer time to think and decide on what course will they study for college which it is already divided per field. It looks like it will be easier for the students because the students will get to know basic knowledge about their chosen field but some students still end up not wanting or still not sure on what course to get in college. This study assumes to confirm the factors that affect the choice of course among grade 12 senior high school students because there are a lot of students that still decides to shift in the middle of their course curriculum and regret the chosen course. This is an important study because this aims to put a solution for students to be decided and be firm with their decision on their college course so the students will not switch courses from time to time. It will not only be difficult for the parents but for the students as well. This is a big basis for the life of an individual because it will be the path in achieving the dreams and goals of a person.

2 MAIN CLAIMS Students tend to switch up their course choice mainly due to reasons (e.g parents choice, lack of experience, incapable skills. etc.) that’s why Senior High School Students is/are having difficulties in choosing their desired course. This can greatly affect their studies, for they can manipulate different courses throughout the years because of difficulty in finding what’s suits them most.
