Online learning has constraints due to the learning environment and student characteristics. Various obstacles faced by students may have a negative impact, including creating academic stress. Therefore, this study aimed to determine the characteristics of students during online learning, namely how the role of emotional intelligence on student academic stress. A total of 100 students of one of the Aliyah Madrasas of Tahfidzil Qur’an in Medan were involved in this study. The instruments used were the emotional intelligence scale and academic stress scale. The data collection method was carried out through a survey by distributing online questionnaires. The results of this study indicated that the students’ academic stress was categorized as low for 16 students (16%), as moderate for 57 students (57%), and as high for 27 students (27%). Based on the analysis of the hypothesis test, it proved that there is a positive relationship between emotional intelligence and academic stress (r = 0.497; p <0.01), which means that the higher the students' emotional intelligence, the lower the academic stress they experience. Emotional intelligence can influence academic stress by 24.7%. This research implies that one of the students' internal factors such as emotional intelligence can minimize academic stress when studying at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
