College Students are individuals who face challenges related to various academic and non-academic demands. The development of psychological capacities is thus important to help them overcome these challenges. Psychoeducation is one of the efforts to develop the positive capacity of students psychologically and needs to be done with an effective approach. The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of the strength-based cognitive behavior approach to develop psychological capital in students. This study is a quasi-experimental method using a pretest-posttest comparison group design. Due to the pandemic situation, psychoeducation in this study was carried out online. Pre-test, post-test and follow-up scores of psychological capital were measured and compared between experimental group and control group. Data was analyzed using mixed-design analysis of variance. The results showed that psychoeducation using a strengthbased cognitive behavior approach did not significantly increase the psychological capital of college students. The implications for the development of student psychological capital, the limitations of the study and suggestions for further research are discussed
