Abstract. The policies carried out by the Indonesian government to reduce the number of COVID-
19 cases include implementing health protocols, namely maintaining a distance so that the
teaching and learning process in schools and campuses in each university uses the distance method
as an effort to prevent the development and spread of COVID-19. Rapid and sudden changes in
the education system can cause intense academic stress on students. The purpose of this study
was to determine whether online learning can affect academic pressure on students. The subjects
of this study were undergraduate students from several universities, both PTN and PTS spread
across Java Island, who participated in online learning as many as 237 students or participants who
had filled out the online learning scale and the Educational stress scale for adolescents (ESSA). This
test uses SLR (Simple Linear Regression) SPSS 20.0 for windows with the results of a simple linear
regression test between online learning and academic stress, the calculated F value = 5.110 at a
significance level of p = 0.027 (p < 0.01). The results show a significant relationship between
distance learning independent variable (X) and learning stress-dependent variable (Y). So it can be
concluded that there is an important relationship between online learning and academic stress.
The implications of the results of this study are expected to be a reference for related parties to
evaluate the online learning system so that it does not have an impact on increasing academic
stress on students.
Keywords: online learning; academic stress; student.
