During COVID-19 pandemic, many adjustments were executed by universities for online learning, including on graduate programs. Learning objectives stayed identical, but learning methods changed quickly and drastically. Even with the learning changes and limitations, altruism is still considered as indicator of success for professional psychology graduate students. After the completion of their study, psychologists will be required to professionally serve the society while prioritizing client’s welfare and human rights, strictly regulated through the code of ethics (recognized nationally and internationally). This research’s purpose is to understand altruism on professional psychology graduate students during COVID-19 pandemic, both at the theoretical study phase and field work practice study phase. The design of this research is descriptive quantitative, and used quota sampling on 104 students (66 students at theoretical study phase and 38 students at field work practice study phase). The instrument used is an adapted questionnaire of Self-Report Altruism Scale. Based on the results, 42.4% of students at theoretical study phase had average level of altruism, and 55.3% of field work practice study phase also had average level of altruism. Furthermore, altruism is differed based on students’ residence and perceived stress source.
