This study investigated the clients’ perception of the effectiveness of the selected support services of Filamer Christian College, namely: business and accounting, guidance and counseling, library, medical/dental, registrar and student affairs services during the school year, 2002-2003. This study determined the extent of utilization, the clients’ level of satisfaction, and effectiveness by office and by measures per office. It studied variation in the clients’ assessment of service effectiveness, extent of utilization, and the clients’ level of satisfaction with the services when the clients were classified according to selected characteristics. Finally, this paper investigated the differences in the clients’ perception of service effectiveness when the clients were classified according to extent of utilization and the clients’ level of satisfaction with each of the support services studied. Self-constructed and validated questionnaires were used to gather data. Effectiveness in service was measured using five selected basic programs and/or services of each of the selected offices, three standard operating procedures, and two summative questions: one for extent of utilization of the services, and the other, the clients' level of satisfaction with the services. The study population included 1,614 tertiary students stratified by curricular programs enrolled, and complete enumeration of 148 full time regular employees of Filamer Christian College below the office of the Vice Presidents.

In “more than twice” category of response by students, extent of utilization of the services ranged between 26.9 percent and 48.5 percent, while that of the employees was between 49.3 percent and 85 percent.

The employees’ personal and work-related characteristics were not significantly related with their perception of the effectiveness of the support services.

A marked percentage of dissatisfaction was especially noted in business accounting services (24.0 percent), library (23.1 percent) and medical/dental services (21.6 percent). The employees, in contrast, indicated satisfaction with medical/dental and business and accounting services (62.8 percent and 60.1 percent, respectively).
