This research, therefore, conducted by analyzing deeply 10 argumentative writings of the third semester students of PBI STAIN JuraiSiwo Metro in academic year 2013/2014. The result of this research showed that there were 41 % errors found in both lexical collocation  (25%) and grammatical collocation (16 %) in the students’ argumentative writing. It clearly means that students’ collocation knowledge still need to be improved.  Hence, teachers have an important role to play down the error in applying collocation.
