Abstract

The purpose of the study is to establish correspondence between procrastination and academic stress in students of the School of Electronic Engineering of a public university in the Callao Region. The research was developed under the positivist approach, quantitative methodology, and basic type, non-experimental and transversal design. The sample consisted of 205 students calculated by simple random probabilistic sampling. Two questionnaire s were applied to evaluate procrastination and stress which were validated by Cronbach alpha with values of .853 and .943 respectively. The results confirm the correspondence between procrastination and academic stress in students (Spearman's Rho,841). The work concludes that greater dilatory behavior, indecisions, lack of punctuality and lack of planning will tend to increase levels of academic stress.
