An online teacher needs to give a constant flow of commitment that can serve the progression of unessential data that goes after both time and core interest. The study determines the correlation of demographic profile and its influences on student’s perception towards online classes. The study contrived 313 respondents who are currently enrolled in the College using the snowball inspecting strategy. Frequency and simple percentage, Weighted Mean, Chi-Square Test of Independence, and one-way ANOVA were used to analyzed and interpret the data accumulated. The discoveries uncovered that the understudies slightly perceived online classes in learning diversification, peer interactions, user-friendliness, online course quality, and course design. The investigation also revealed a statistically significant relationship between the respondent's course, family income, and family structure to the level of perception towards online classes. Moreover, there is a statistically significant difference between family income and family structure by its influence on students' perception of online classes. The study concluded that correlational analysis among students explains the demographic factors affecting their concentration on online classes. Family income and structure play a significant role and greatly influences understudies enthusiasm in the College of Business and Accountancy online classes.
