Statistics from the Faculty office reveal that there are 2,778 students; 300 students were selected from these number. The stratified sampling technique were employed in the study. The Analysis were done using Spearman Rank Correlation and Factor Analysis. The spearman correlation reveal that there are weak relationship between Students’ performance and factors such as school climate, guidance and counselling, socio-economic status, ethnicity and Age. Among the variables study, family background of students, guidance and counselling, monthly income of students and school climate affects undergraduate students’ academic performance at the Navrongo campus of the University for Development Studies.
