This study explores stress in the form of role overload among college students. A conceptual model is developed and tested empirically on a sample of 224 students. Students responsible for paying their own tuition were found to work more hours, which in turn led to greater role overload. Student preference for polychronic (as opposed to monochronic) time use was also linked to higher role overload. The relationship between technophobia and overload was not supported. Finally, role overload lead to lower student satisfaction with the university; and there was marginal support for an inverse relationship between role overload and GPA.
