In this study, we investigate two-self-awareness concepts as indicator related to school adaptation in university: one is assumed-competence and the other is self-affirmation. From a longitudinal point of view, we also consider how these two concepts are affected by initial enrollment intention in April, participation in extracurricular activities, and communication frequency with other people. The results imply that assumed-competence could be directly affected by initial enrollment intention in April, and that self-affirmation could be directly affected by communication frequency with other people. These relationships change over time. Moreover, we concluded that the relationship between the two self-awareness concepts and communication frequency is indirectly influenced by participation in extracurricular activities.
