The variables included were age, gender and year level of the respondents. The descriptive method of research was used to determine the perception of the retention policy of 1st year up to 3rd year Radiologic Technology students of De La Salle Health Sciences Institute for academic year 2011-2012. A total of 390 students were the respondents of the study. The researchers used a self-made questionnaire validated by the professors and the guidance counselor of CMRT. The questionnaire contains 10 items which have positive and negative questions pertaining to perception of students. The statistical tests used to analyze the date were percentage, frequency distribution, mean, standard deviation, t-test and analysis of variance (ANOVA). Based on the results, 1) majority of the respondents are female with ages less than 20 and belong to first year level; 2) most of the respondents have a positive perception on the retention policy of the College of Medical Radiation Technology. However, students perceived that it also gives them stress; 3) the respondents have the same perception on the retention policy regardless of their age and gender.
