The purpose of this study is to examines the factors influencing college students' adaptation to College life adaptation, and to investigate the relationship between relationship between variables and College life adaptation. Structured questionnaire was given on 210 freshman, and data was analyzed using SPSS/WIN 22.0. There was a significant correlation between College life adaptation and Department satisfaction (r = .216, p <.001) and Ego identity (r = 395, p <.001). As a result of the statistical significance of the model predicted to College life adaptation, the F statistic value is 12.222 and the significance probability is .000. Variables have significant explanations for college adjustment at a significance level of 0.1. College life adaptation is also explained by 44% variable. If we develop the adaptation program for college life considering variables, it is expected that it will have a positive effect on the improvement of adaptation ability of college students.
