This study dealt with the effects of students’ consultation in the School of International Hospitality and Tourism Management (SIHTM). The effects were determined through the improvements on the students observed by the teachers after the consultation. The study used a descriptive survey design. Document analysis and casual conversation with 23 faculty members were applied to obtain the data needed. The consultation forms submitted by the 23 faculty members at the Dean’s Office of the SIHTM during the second semester of SY 2012-2013 were analyzed by the researchers in order to identify the intervention activities done by the teachers. After transcribing the data, categorization into academic- related, environmentally-related, and personal problem-related concerns was done. The interventions were likewise grouped according to their nature. The concerns during consultations were focused on attendance and low grade due to the number of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities in the school. They may be excelling in skill-based activities and competition but their academic performance were affected. Guiding and redirecting students through pieces of advice was the most common intervention done by the faculty members followed by make-up activities as sources of scores. Most likely, the interventions given by the teachers helped the students improve their performance in school and their behaviors. Consultation proved to help students.
