Abstract: 
In order to study the role of coping styles on academic stress and academic achievement 253 female and 144 male Iranian university students were asked to complete the Student Life Stress Inventory (SLSI; Gadzella, 1991) and the Coping Inventory for Stressful Situations (CISS, Endler & Parker, 1990). Data showed negative correlations between academic achievement and academic stress, and between emotion-oriented and avoidant coping styles. The correlation between academic achievement and task-oriented coping style was positive. Academic stress showed a negative relationship with task-oriented coping style and positive relationships with emotion- oriented and avoidant coping styles. Stepwise regression analysis showed that academic stress, task-oriented coping style, emotion-oriented coping style, and avoidant coping style respectively accounted for 9%, 3%, 2% and 1% the variance in academic achievement. More precisely, the relationship between academic stress and academic achievement is influenced only by task-oriented and emotion-oriented coping styles. Strategies of promoting effective coping styles among university students are discussed.
