The change in learning methods from face-to-face learning to online learning was one of the academic pressures for college students during the COVID-19 pandemic that impacted college students' anxiety. This research aimed to explore and describe the anxiety profile of college students of the Faculty of Teacher Training and Education, Tadulako University, to determine appropriate psychological intervention to overcome it. The research also intended to test the difference in anxiety levels of college students based on the study program, department, and batch. The participants were 117 college students from different study programs, departments, and batches. For the data analysis, the authors used descriptive statistics analysis and inferential analysis with the ANOVA test using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences software for Windows 21.0. The results of the descriptive analysis showed that generally, the respondents have high anxiety. The inferential analysis results showed significant differences in anxiety among college students based on the study program and department. On the other hand, there was no difference in anxiety levels among college students based on the batch. The results also suggest the urgency of the psychological intervention to overcome college students' anxiety to remain productive in participating in learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.
