The Covid-19 pandemic made most of the universities in the Philippines shift to distance education, particularly the e-learning mode, as it is a suitable alternative for teaching students amidst the pandemic. This paper investigated the the university students’ mathematics performance based on their GPA and their e-learning experiences through distance education and the correlations of such variables including the  demographic characteristics. A validated modified survey questionnaire was used to gather data from the 489 randomly selected participants for their demographics and e-learning experiences based on self-efficacy, usefulness, system quality, effectiveness, satisfaction, challenges, benefits, and leisure interest. It also included information on their e-learning access. Data were analyzed using the chi-square and Spearman tests through SPSS software. Findings revealed that students showed good mathematics performance and significantly correlated (p ≤ 0.05) to their age and fathers' educational background. Moreover, students' level of digital literacy, possession of technology, type of internet connection, and system quality were significantly correlated as well to their GPA. Overall, students have manifested a positive e-learning experience. The results are useful for the school  administrators as this may serves as information to improve the implementation of distance education through e-learning mode to ensure quality learning. Moreover, Schools are encouraged to provide students with high-speed internet kits and other facilities for a significantly better e-learning experience.
