Work commitment in the organizations is a factor which leads to the development of discipline, sense of duty, morality, and improvement of human relationships at work. The existence of ethics in the organization, having commitment to the tasks and playing professional roles and behaviors in the best way and with no external control, cause inner peace and satisfaction. High level of work commitment in an organization will guarantee a rise in the productivity, the realization of sustainable development, the evolution of human cultural, the management stability, the economic order and the achievement of short-term and long-term goals of the organization. Several factors affect the various aspects of work commitment. This study aims to investigate the impact and the role of educational and administrative-organizational factors on the students' work commitment. The study is descriptive-correlational. The sample included 800 students of public universities in Isfahan, including University of Technology, University of Medical Sciences and the University of Isfahan who were selected using a sampling method proportional to size (438 girls and 362 boys). The research tool was the researcher-made questionnaire containing 30 questions in two educational and administrative-organizational aspects. The results of the questionnaire were analyzed using multivariate correlation coefficient (regression) method. The results showed that academic and administrative-organizational factors respectively affect the students' work commitment (P< 0.05).
