International undergraduate students attending U.S. colleges completed a common ?hassles? assessment, the Inventory of College Students? Recent Life Experiences (ICSRLE). Previous structure and validation studies with this measure have been limited to North American students. Using exploratory and confirmatory analyses, a distinct structure of 6 factors using 35 items presented a better fit for the international student population than the original factor structure. The dimensions include relationship problems, social alienation, system negotiation, time demands, disappointment, and academic discord. We discuss implications for future use of the ICSRLE for both research and counseling with international students.
