Abstract

University is a place where individuals obtain knowledge and experience. During their study, many college students may experience issues related with being independent to deal with life challenges. This period is known as emerging adulthood. Learning to be independent in dealing with life challenges may lead to psychological distress in their daily life. The aim of this study is to describe psychological distress among emerging adults. This study involved 210 undergraduate and postgraduate students in Indonesia using an online survey. It was found that most of the subjects have a moderate level of psychological distress (M= 2.98). Psychological distress has two dimensions, the first dimension called factor of depression with M=2.95, it showed that most of the subjects have a moderate level of depression. The second dimension is factor of anxiety with M=3.04, it means that most of the subjects have a moderate level of anxiety.
