    ABSTRACT: This study aimed at determining the senior high school students’ level of aspiration and level of readiness in pursuing college degree. It probed into whether there is a difference in the level of aspiration and level of readiness in pursuing college degree when grouped according to age, gender, average monthly family income and academic track. It also looked into the relationship between the respondents’ level of aspiration and their level of readiness in pursuing college degree. This descriptive-correlational study involved 198 senior high school students of the University of Perpetual Help System Laguna, Binan Campus. Findings showed that majority of the respondents were young adult, female, with an average monthly family income of less than 30 thousand and belonged to STEM. The respondents showed very high level of aspiration and high level of readiness in pursuing college degree. Further, the female respondents who belonged to HUMSS had higher level of aspiration than the male respondents and those who belonged to HUMSS had higher level of readiness than those who belonged to aforesaid academic track. The respondents’ aspiration was a strong predictor of their readiness in pursuing college degree.
