The research was done in Mekane Yesus Management and Leadership College (MY-MLC) on adult learners in the regular, extension and summer degree programs. Questionnaire, containing Background Information, Close-ended and Open-ended items as well as interview were used to collect data for the study. Admission and CGPA of respondents were taken from record office. The data collected was analyzed and interpreted using percentages, means and Pearson’s correlation coefficientan. Ten factors (parameters) were applied to affect overall curriculum satisfaction. These were analyzed to see their correlation with each other and with CGPA. The overall curriculum satisfaction was considered to be the average satisfaction of these ten parameters. The result of the research showed that the ten factors, affecting overall curriculum satisfaction, are strongly positively correlated to each other. The overall curriculum satisfaction has moderate positive correlation with CGPA. The admission criteria, studied separately in two cases, showed that admission by diploma affects college CGPA weakly while admission by EUEE significantly affects CGPA
