Computer programming is one of the basic skills of students who are in the Information Technology Education field. C Programming Language is the program used in teaching students in their basic computer programming subjects. This study aimed to determine the level of self-efficacy in learning C programming language of students taking up basic computer programming of Carlos Hilado Memorial State College – Alijis Campus. Quantitative type of research was used in this study. Stratified random sampling was employed in the selection of the respondents. The instrument used in assessing C Programming Language Self-Efficacy was adopted from the Computer Programming Self-Efficacy Scale (CPSES) of Ramalingam & Wiedenbeck (1998). The statistical tools used in the study were T-Test for Independent Samples and ANOVA. The level of Self-Efficacy of IT Faculty in their knowledge in C Programming Language is “Very Good”. The level of Self-Efficacy in learning C programming language as a whole and when students are grouped according to Age, Sex, and Programs is “Good”. There is a significant difference when students are grouped according to programs which reveals that the level of Self-Efficacy of BS in Industrial Technology major in Computer Technology is significantly higher than that of Bachelor of Science in Information Technology.
