Participants were 230 college students majoring in Educational Psychology and Guidance. The students (N= 349 students) were recruited randomly for the survey. The data, then, were analyzed using quantitative approach. The results showed that most participants (43.04%) were less involved in procrastination while few of them (10.87%) showed low frequency of procrastination. This research suggested that the moderate level of procrastination indicated a high degree of procrastination.
