The study focused on academic adaptation to identify effects of group psychotherapy in the adaptation process of students in the first year of university. The sample consisted of 24 students, 04 males and 20 females, aged 18 and 29 years old, from the psychology course at the Universidade Federal Rural do Rio de Janeiro. Participants were divided into two groups of 12 people each, called group A and group B. Group A attended 8 group psychotherapy sessions. Group B served as control group. Both groups answered the Academic Experiences Questionnaire reduced - QVAr, on two occasions, one at the beginning and another at end of the school year. The results showed that the group who participated in Psychotherapy, at the end of the study, raised its level of academic adaptation, from medium adapted to quite adapted. While the control group declined on their level of adaptation, going from quite adapted to medium adapted. The study concluded that engaged participation in a psychotherapeutic group helped students to face their academic adaptation process in the 1st year of graduation.
