The purpose of the current study is to investigate the relationship between procrastination and psychological well-being through the mediating role of hope in university students. Participants were 187 (106 females and 81 males) university students attending a major state university in Ankara, Turkey. Turkish versions of Tuckman Procrastination Scale, State Hope Scale, and Psychological Well-being Scale were used as measurement tools in the study. Results from conducting bootstrapped mediation analysis indicated that procrastination was significantly and negatively related to state hope, which in turn was significantly and positively related to psychological well-being. Since the significant association between procrastination and psychological well-being became non-significant once state hope was included in the prediction model and the indirect effect of state hope was found to be significant in the 95% confidence interval, state hope was concluded to be a significant mediator in the procrastination-psychological well-being link. These findings revealed that procrastination is not a sufficient factor to lead lower psychological well-being by itself, but instead, procrastination leads to lower levels of psychological well-being through lower levels of hope. Thus, our findings highlight the importance of developing and implementing hope enhancing counseling programs to help procrastinator university students achieve higher levels of psychological well-being.
