Abstract: 
The aim of this study was to construct and validate a scale for the measurement of various psychological stressors of undergraduate students studying at Ahvaz Payame Nour University (APNU). An elementary scale consisting of 68 items tapping a wide range of psychological stressors was administered to 500 subjects randomly selected from APNU students. Factor analysis of the data yielded formation of a 28-item scale entitled Ahvaz Payame Nour Students Stressors Inventory (APN-SSI) comprising two factors. The first factor with 17-items related to non-academic stressors. The internal consistenly (as measured by Cronbach Alpha) and test-retest reliability coefficients of APN-SSI were found to be satisfactory. To examine the validity of APN-SSI, it was administered to 110 Subjects concurrently with two other widely used standardized scales, the results of which indicated that APN-SSI is a highly valid scale to be used in future studies.
