Abstract

Spirituality is increasingly awareness of well significance within the field of counseling. This study attempts to promote greater understanding of the relationship between spirituality and academic achievement. Total number of respondents involved in the study were 350 (177 males; 50.6% and 173; 49.4% females) which were recruited for the study from 4 campuses of Universiti Kuala Lumpur. This study investigated the relationship between spiritual and academic achievement among Universiti Kuala Lumpur (UniKL students) using the Spiritual Well-Being Scale (Paloutzian & Ellison, 1982) and grade point averages (GPA). Results showed significant correlations between the scores on the measures as a whole and among the subscales. This indicates that there is a relationship between spiritual well-being and academic achievement as related in this population.
