Rathus Assertiveness Schedule (Rathus, 1973), Academic Self-Efficacy Scale (Jenson, 1991; Sherer & Maddux, 1982), The Inventory for Student Adjustment Strain (Crano & Crano, 1993), and UCLA Loneliness Scale (Russell, 1996) were used to examine a total of 122 graduate international students. Findings indicate that English proficiency, assertiveness, and academic self-efficacy contributed uniquely to the variance in students ' general adjustment level, while students ' loneliness was predicted only by gender and assertiveness.
