Study habits are the repeated learned practices that are observed routinely to accomplish related school responsibilities to earn high grades. As part of the Guidance program of the University of Bohol, the Guidance Center looked into the profile of the study habit practices of first-year students. The respondents were 314 first-year students enrolled in Guidance during the first semester of the academic year 2016–2017. These students were from the different colleges of the University of Bohol, Tagbilaran City, Bohol, Philippines. Data mining was employed in retrieving the data stored on the automated system used by the university. The study habits instrument was modified from the work of Preston and Botel, and the work of Wrenn. The findings in all the aspects used to measure the study habits of the students, such as time allotted for study hours and in prioritizing school work; note-taking; reading habits; place, materials, and physical setting; test preparation; and examination habits showed fair ratings. The findings implied that the student respondents need to acquire a higher level of study habits to maximize study effort and meet the standards in place for a college education.
