Introduction: The present study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of transdiagnostic treatment in clinical symptoms, cognitive emotion regulation, and students' distress tolerance.
Materials and Methods: The statistical population of this clinical trial included all students of Mashhad universities. Among them, thirty students were selected by the convenient sampling method and randomly assigned to an equal experimental group and a control group.

After performing the pretest, the experimental group received transdiagnostic treatment intervention in 10 two-hour sessions. Data analyzed using descriptive statistics and analysis of variance with repeated measures and SPSS 26 software.
Results: Based on the findings, there were significant differences between experimental and control groups in the scores of clinical symptoms, cognitive emotion regulation, and distress tolerance (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: It seems that transdiagnostic treatment is effective in clinical symptoms, cognitive regulation of emotions, and distress tolerance in university students.
