As gender roles in the society are being rapidly redefined, female students today are showing outstanding academic prowess and pursuing higher education. The current study recruited Korean international students (n = 76) enrolled in universities in the US and examined gender differences in academic adjustment. The findings of the current study suggested that female "alpha psychology" might apply to international students' adjustment. Korean female students showed a higher level of adjustment than males. English proficiency was a positive predictor of adjustment. The number of Korean students in the same major was significantly and positively related to male international students' adjustment but not significantly related to female students' adjustment.
