It is a newly discovered virus that disturbs not only the physical aspect but adversely impact the mental health status of a person even those at their homes. With only few literatures in this topic, the objective of this study is to examine the extent and relationship among the four domains of Quality of Life (QoL: physical, psychological, social relationships and environment), Perceived Stress and General Self-Efficacy among Filipino college students under Enhance Community Quarantine (ECQ) during the first wave of COVID outbreak. The results of descriptive statistics among undergraduate students showed that 41.8 % of the participants has an overall perception of good quality of life and 37% reported that they are satisfied with their health. Furthermore, students reported a moderate level of perceived stress and their general self-efficacy is within the norm compared with the results of other studies. Correlational analysis at 0.01 significance level showed that student's general self-efficacy has a significant positive correlation with all the four domains of QoL. Meanwhile, perceived stress at 0.01 p-value is negatively correlated with all the study variables except social domain of QoL which is significant at 0.05 level. Finally, the four domains of QoL implicates that there is a strong association between physical and psychological domain while others were all significantly correlated at 0.01 level. This study recommends further monitoring of the overall status of college students during pandemic period.
