Academic failure is dreadful but is a situation that is experienced by some students in the University. This study made use of qualitative method of research focusing on investigating the reasons why the participants experienced academic failures in 50% or more of their subjects, enough for them to be under Contract of Agreement (COA) and on how they cope with academic failures. Ten (10) participants under the Contract of Agreement (COA) Program of the University were interviewed personally and virtually. Attitudes (laziness), computer gaming addiction, work, people, and personal issues were the primary reasons of academic failures. All seven participants also had different coping mechanisms; namely, diversion, redirection, and inspiration. Among the reasons, external factors were evident while among the coping mechanisms, those that would bring positive results were apparent. The results show that when it comes to academic failures, students are more vulnerable to external factors and that despite their failure, they still would like to go back on track.
