This study was conducted to determine the extent of socialization and academic performance of selected undergraduate students of De La Salle Health Sciences Institute with the demographic variables of program, year level, gender, parent's highest educational attainment and monthly family income. The descriptive correlational research design was used in the study. A self-made questionnaire was used to gather data from 328 students who participated in the study, using convenience sampling technique. Data was treated using frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, independent t-test, F-test, Duncan's multiple range test, and Pearson product moment correlation coefficient. Based on the results, 1) there were more female respondents than male respondents in the study. Majority of the respondents were B.S. Medical Laboratory Sciences, in their second year, have monthly family income P100,000-P249,999 and college graduate as their parent's highest educational attainment; 2) the overall extent of socialization and when taken in terms of the respondent's collegiate, parental and non-collegiate experience was recorded to be high. It was also revealed that it is in the collegiate experience part where they have the highest extent of socialization; 3) the academic performance of the respondents was good; 4) the extent of socialization of the respondents differed according to the program and year level of the respondents. It was also shown that gender, parents' highest educational attainment and monthly family income have no connection to the extent of socialization of the respondents; 5) the academic performance of the respondents differs according to program, year level and gender. Moreover, it was found that there was no difference in academic performance when the respondents were grouped according to parents’ highest educational attainment and monthly family income; 6) the overall extent of socialization of the respondents and their academic performance showed no correlation. This means that, even though students are active or not in socializing with people, this will not affect their academic performance. However, the extent of socialization in terms of non-collegiate experience is negatively correlated with academic performance. Those who have high non-collegiate socialization tend to have lower academic performance.
