This study investigated whether students who had a previous diagnosis of depression and/or anxiety would have higher levels of stress related to the college transition than students who did not have such diagnoses. Fifty-seven participants took an online survey on the level of stress in various college life domains. The results revealed that there were significantly higher stress levels in dorm stress and social life stress among students with a diagnosis than among those with no diagnosis. There was no significant difference between students with a diagnosis and those without a diagnosis in overall stress, financial stress and academic stress. Implications, suggestions, and future research are discussed.
