Abstract

Managing student affairs and services is a dynamic and engaging task that all schools must have to deal with effectively and efficiently. Covid – 19 pandemic has brought new and unprecendented challenges where the Office of Student Affairs and Services has to offer innovative solutions to ensure that teaching and learning will continue. This study was conducted to assess the services offered to students in Saint Mary’s University College Department, a private higher education institution in the Northern Luzon, Philippines. It found out that, generally, students were aware and satisfied on the services provided by the school. In all the services presented, students’ responses vary from having totally no knowledge at all to very much aware. Further, Gender, School and Year Level were not considered as factors in the way student respond to the level of awareness and satisfaction except on the Student Handbook Development and Student Discipline. The crux of students’ awareness and satisfaction rests on how the school could deliver the services faster, stress-free and at the most convenient possible way in the context of students. Finally, this study forwards three important services that could enhance student services, these are creating of a “One – Stop Shop” where students can have all the necessary links and information; reorganization of the student study group program (SSGP) through virtual meetings and enhancement of the activities of the guidance and counseling team.
