Due to school requirements, sleep becomes leeway for students believing studying hours increase knowledge, thus, affecting health and academic performance. The study determines the relationship between sleeping hours and studying hours to the student's academic performance on task-based requirements. Cross-sectional study compared data of 632 respondents from 1st to 3rd year concurrently, using stratified random sampling. Likert Scale was utilized for Level of Perceived Academic Performance while close-ended questions for level of duration of sleeping and studying hours. Data analysis using Pearson Chi-Square for difference between year levels and Spearman Rank’s Correlation Coefficient for relationship between variables. For Assignments, Quizzes, and Major Examinations, most sleeping hours were 5-6 hours, 3-6 hours, and 3-4 hours, respectively. For Assignments and Quizzes, most studying hours were 3-4 hours; 5-6 hours for Major Examinations. For Relationship between Sleeping Hours and Academic Performance on Assignments, the majority exceeded academic performance standards with 5-6 hours; achieved academic performance standards with 3-4 hours for Quizzes and Major Examinations. For Relationship between Studying Hours and Academic Performance on Assignments and Quizzes, the majority exceeded and achieved academic performance standards respectively with 3-4 hours and achieved academic performance standards with 5-6 hours for Major Examinations. Significant difference between year levels in Studying Hours given Assignments was seen. Significant relationships were demonstrated: direct weak correlation between Sleeping Hours and Academic Performance on Major Examinations and inverse weak correlation between Studying Hours and Academic Performance on Assignments. This promotes awareness to students and academe regarding the relationship to take appropriate measures.
