A total of twenty-five graduate students from one public university in Thailand participated in data collection. A survey questionnaire was use to gather data from respondents. Results showed that external locus of control had a significant influence on life stress of graduate students at .05 level. Findings indicated that locus of control could explain 15.8% of variance to life stress of graduate students. Overall, the more external locus of control graduate students had, the more life stressful they experienced. Discussions, limitations, and recommendations for further studies were also conferred.
