Academic adaptation is a complex process and its success is related to life satisfaction and career success. This study aimed to design and evaluate the results of an Academic Adaptation Program in higher education. Twenty-two university students, with problems of adaptation, participated in the study. For the design stage, the action-research method was applied. For the assessment, we were inspired by the quasi-experimental method with the comparison before and after the intervention. As a result, in the design stage was offered a workshop model that met the demands of the target group. Regarding the assessment of the intervention, participants were able to improve their scores after the intervention in important dimensions of the Academic Adjustment Scale and Career Adaptability.

Keywords : Adaptation; undergraduate students; professional and career guidance.
