As the academe transitions back to onsite set-up of teaching and learning, students face not only the challenging nature and amount of course requirements, but also the various educational dynamics including issues on mental health brought upon by the pandemic. Considered as one indicator of an individual’s mental health, psychological well-being is associated with relationships, happiness, and academic achievement of students. Adopting a correlational predictive design, the researchers administered the 18-item Ryff Scales of Psychological Well-being to third-year college students who are considered academically successful, with semestral general weighted averages ranging from 1.0 to 1.75. To identify the psychological state of well-being amid the modifications of learning delivery, its six dimensions were analyzed and presented using both descriptive and inferential statistics. The results show that (a) the target respondents have a relatively high level of psychological well-being across six domains, (b) some facets reveal significant correlations with the general weighted averages, and (c) the predictors exhibited relationships, albeit weak, accounting for the 15% of variances in academic success. With the hope to contribute to the holistic development of the students, recommendations to enrich student wellness programs and evaluate academic resources were provided.
