For more than one year, Covid-19 has been attacking Indonesia; online learning has been used to solve the problem in the academic system. Online learning was not easy to adapt to; some students got depression, stress, and anxiety during their studies. However, students have expected to be able to adapt to this condition. This research aims to describe the condition of depression, stress, and anxiety in undergraduate students after receiving one year more pandemic Covid-19. The participant is 416 students (278 female, 138 male) from 8 faculties in one of the universities in Surabaya, aged 17-21 years and collected by accidental sampling. Students were asked to fill the Depression, Anxiety, Stress Scale (DASS). The data collected were analyzed by using descriptive statistics and one-way ANOVA. The result showed differences in anxiety and stress between males and females. However, in depression, no differences between males and females. The extent of depression, anxiety, and stress among undergraduate students was in the middle level (273 students). Students used several coping strategies to decrease the depression, anxiety, and stress during online learning, such as leaving their task for a while as a refreshment and then finishing it, sleeping, playing games, watching movies or Korean series, exercising, and eating. Besides that, on average, students have intrinsic motivation to accomplish their tasks and study hard to pursue the future. The student needs to keep preserving their spirit and motivation for education. Hence, academicians need to encourage students to build their intrinsic motivation and understand their responsibility to cure depression, anxiety, and stress.
