Academic probation students are considered a risk group as they do not meet the minimum academic requirements for a given semester. As such, factors affecting these students should be determined so that effective support or intervention programs can be carried out to assist this risk group. This paper examines the intrapersonal factors affecting academic probation students, specifically self-management, financial and health factors. Higher Education Needs Inventory for Students (HENIs) surveying tool was utilized on 81 academic probation students from Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS. The criticality of the factors affecting the academic probation students is based on the HENIs index. Data analyses by HENIs indicates that self-management factor is the most critical factor amongst the three factors with a HENIs index of 2.52. Such an index value indicates a high level of seriousness. This is also supported by a positive correlation between self-management factor of academic probation students and suicidal ideation (R2 of 0.240; p-value of 0.001). Financial and health factors both scored a HENIs index of 2.38 and 2.17, respectively. These index values indicate a moderate level of seriousness.
