This study investigated the main difficulties faced by undergraduate students when entering higher education, and whether their perception could vary according to gender, semester, if the student is attending the course initially desired and type of institution. 423 students participated in this study. Through two open questions, the main academic and non-academic difficulties experienced by the students were investigated. The answers were submitted to thematic content analysis. The main academic difficulty observed was related to differences between high school and higher education. Among the non-academic difficulties, "time management" was the most frequently cited. Students from the University tended to present a little more difficulties than those of the Federal Institute. Methodological and practical implications of the results were discussed.

Keywords : stressful events; transition; undergraduate students; academic difficulties; non-academic difficulties.
