—The main purpose of this paper is to examine the
college adjustment of international undergraduates in
Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). Three hundred and
seventy eight international undergraduates completed the
Student Adaptation to College Questionnaire (SACQ). Data
were analyzed using Social Packages for Social Sciences (SPSS)
version 18 for percentages and mean. The finding indicated
that the majority of international undergraduates in UTM are
moderately adjusted in terms of academic, social, personal
emotional adjustment and institutional attachment. The results
of this study should help various units to make better strategic
plan as to enhance international undergraduates’ adjustment
in the institution.
