Abstract : The shift or transition to online learning brought by the intensified prevalence of COVID-19 pandemic has presented new challenges for the students including the increased opportunities for procrastination, which has been found to have detrimental impact on academic their academic achievement. Thus, this study aimed to investigate the association between academic procrastination and academic achievement among all second year Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEED) students. A quantitative approach using descriptive- correlational technique was employed to achieve the objectives of the study. With the utilization of a well- established and reliable questionnaire, the researchers surveyed a total of 90 respondents using complete enumeration or census survey method. Furthermore, the collected data were analyzed through frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, and Pearson product-moment correlation. The results revealed that the level of academic procrastination of the participants was moderate while their level of academic achievement was very good. However, upon conducting the correlation test, there was no significant association between academic procrastination and academic achievement. This finding suggests that in this present study, students' academic achievement is not influenced by their tendency to procrastinate.
