The COVID-19 Pandemic brought notable advancements in technology to classrooms to make education accessible for students. Educators and students use online learning to provide quality education, as well as promote mental well-being. However, several studies have shown that the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on students' mental health. This study aims to identify the perceived impact of the COVID-19 pandemic to the mental well-being of Bachelor of Science in Medical Laboratory Sciences Students in De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute. The survey involved 266 BSMLS students, with 61 respondents in their first year, 68 respondents in their second year, 75 respondents in their third year, and 62 respondents in their fourth year. COVID-19 pandemic has had a moderate impact (55.3%) on students' self-esteem, their ability to handle problems, the amount of time and energy spared and concerns about the future, purpose in life, their willingness to try out new things, and their social skills. The study found that age and year level were not significant factors contributing to the mental health of the students.
