Covenant University (NIGERIA)
Background:
This study discusses students’ adjustment problems to institutional regulations and Covenant University is the case study. The main purpose of the study was to find out if students have problemsadjusting to the university’s code of conduct and other regulations and to also find out the perceived causes of their maladjustment.

Method:
A 35 item questionnaire was developed for the purpose of this study titled ‘Questionnaire on Institutional Regulations and Students’ Adjustment Problem’. Two hundred (200) respondents were selected using both stratified and random sampling techniques.Three hypotheses were formulated at the 0.05 level of significance. The t test of independent samples, analysis of variance, and multiple regression analysis were used to test the hypotheses.

Results:
Hypothesis one shows that students in the lower levels are not more maladjusted than students in the higher levels (t=1.020, df =198, p>0.05) and that male students are more maladjusted than female students (t=.009, df =198, p<0.05). Hypothesis two shows that there is a positive and significant relationship between participants’ family background and adjustment level. (r=0.426, p<0.05) while the third hypothesisshows that there is a joint and independent interaction of age, sex, college and service units on students adjustment (F (1, 162) =3.614, P=0.05),

Conclusion:
The study shows the need for policy and plans including making the university counselling centre more effective so as to reduce the number of students circumventing the laid down rules and regulations.These would reduce the alarming rise in delinquency, truancy and anti-social behaviours among the students.
