After graduation most high school students have to face dilemmas about the future. They ask themselves, “What happens after graduation?”Dilemmas that they must be able to succumb immediately. But that’s not the end of it for them, the hardest question about going to college is, “What course do you want to take?” second, “Are you sure?” there are times answers are “yes” to the second question. But due to the stringent requisites of their course they are opted to switch to plan B, which is shifting their course. While many students appeal for reconsideration process, other fined shifting as a means of ending their purpose to their current course. Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education is one of the programs being offered in Laguna University. In line with this, the BSEd-offers three (3) subjects for majoring the course, these subjects are Mathematics, English and Biology. With this, these Department imposed qualifications for freshmen BSEd students in order to know who are fit enough for the profession. The qualification was implemented to maintain the department’s “above par” performance based on the National Standards mandated by the Commission on the Higher Education. However not all students are lucky enough to pass the qualifications. Those who failed were advised to shift to another course. On the other hand shifting does not guarantee success, the process of shift5ing itself is a challenge with shifting exams, interviews and the thought of not making the cut on their previous course will be stressful. But the implication can be more of a struggle, a struggle to adapt a new world as they enter a new world. In line with this the researcher have chosen to conduct this study because of the curiosity they have towards their former comrades on how they adapt and what are the factors that affects their adaptability level.
