Students who tended to be absent at high-school are more likely to dropout from university and less able to develop career skills. Educational psychological findings suggest that fostering autonomous motivation to entrance is effective for high-school students to well-future adjustment to university. For testing the possibility, this study investigated which type of entrance motivation led to well-adjustment and career adaptability at university. One hundred sixty-three university freshmen answered self-reported questionnaire on the reasons for entrance, subjective adjustment to university, and career adaptability. The results revealed that the degree of study-orientation and that of academic ability respectively had positive and negative correlation to both university-adjustment and higher career adaptability. The extracurricular activities oriented reason, which is the other type of autonomous reason, had no relation to both university-adjustment and career adaptability. It would be therefore to foster study-orientation motivation of high-school students before entrance, preventing from their future-maladjustment to university.
