The research was developed to determine the relationship between the entrance average and academic performance in students of the National Autonomous University of Alto Amazonas (UNAAA), Yurimaguas 2018 and 2019. For the study, the entrance average and grades obtained from the first, second and third cycle of studies of UNAAA students were considered variables. A sample of 93 students of both sexes, enrolled in the Accounting Studies Program, was involved. The results show that the level of average entry-level in students of the accounting program in the first, second and third cycles of the UNAAA, Yurimaguas, years 2018 and 2019, were located in deficient 50.5. The level of academic performance was 82.8% regular. There is no relationship between good income level and academic performance level, chi2 = 0.20 (p > 0.05). There is a relationship between the average poor income and the level of academic performance, chi2 = 0.024 (p < 0.05). In conclusion, there is a "very low positive" correlation between the average income (R = 0.189; p = 0.070) and academic performance, which is statistically not significant (p > 0.05).
