University of Gujrat that attempted to identify the post enrollment factors that students perceived as
having important influences on students failures in their university studies. Data was collected by using
questionnaire. The Independent-Samples t-test procedure was used to compares means for two groups
of cases. Structural equation modeling (SEM) analysis was also performing to test the relationship
among latent factor represented by the actual data from 100 drop out students of university. Finding
