Data were analyzed by SPSS software version 16 and related statistical tests. Results: There was a significant relationship between academic stress, gender (P<0.05) and educational level (P<0.001). Based on Spearman's correlation coefficient, there was a significant positive correlation between knowledge and academic stress (r=0.201, P<0.001). Subjective norms (r= -0.177, P<0.05) and perceived behavioral control (r= -0.261, P<0.001) has reverse relationship. Also, the results of regression showed that the theory of planned behavior in general predicted 14.7 variance of students' academic stress which knowledge and perceived behavioral control has significant effect on them (P<0.001).
