among part-time students. 150 part-time students agreed to be the respondents for this
study. Data analysis was done using descriptive statistics, correlation, and multiple

psychological well-being. The findings of this study revealed that the work stress (r value =
0.499), family stress (r value = 0.418), academic stress (r value = 0.287 )and financial stress (r
value = 0.323) have a relationship and significantly influence on the psychological well-being.
