The objective of this research is to develop and examine the model validity used to measure self-discipline as good citizenship of 1,407 undergraduates, including 41.578% of males and 58.422% of females, from 18 different faculties by stratify random sampling. A tool used in this study is the questionnaire evaluating self-discipline, which is consisted of a set of 89 questions for measuring at 5 different levels and the reliability is 0.963. Data analysis is conducted by the use of descriptive statistics and the second order factor analysis is also conducted by Mplus 7.4 program. The findings show that the measurement model used to explain self-discipline as good citizenship is at a good validity level, which includes 4 factors from a total of 20 indicators. The patience, determination, and intention factor (measured by 3 indicators) was the highest factor loading coefficient followed by responsibility (8 indicators), honesty (2 indicators), and self-regulation (7 indicators) factors, respectively.
