Abstract

The objective of this study is to examine key determinants that influence students’ choice in selecting a program. The theoretical framework was adapted from Chapman’s (1981) and Cubillo, Sanchez and Cervino’s (2006) models. Our study of students’ choice criteria was conducted using the survey questionnaire method and a five-point Likert scale was employed. The sample for the testing
and refinement process consisted of 299 first year tertiary students
from across all three programs in a private higher education
institution. All our hypotheses are supported by Multiple Linear
Regression analysis. The results indicated that program evaluation
is the most significant factor that influences students’ program
choice. This is followed by the college is effort to communicate with
students and level of educational aspiration. However, it was found
that significant persons have the least influence on students’
program choice.
