So, the purpose of this study is to investigate the mediating role of rumination as a cognitive factor in the relationship between perfectionism and procrastination. For this purpose, a sample of 277 students (male and female) at the undergraduate, master's and doctorate levels from four State University were selected in multi-stage cluster sampling method. In order to collect data, students answered Frost Multidimensional perfectionism scale (MPS), Solomon & Rothblum Academic Procrastination Scale and Ruminative Response Styles Questionnaire. In order to analyze data, multiple linear regression method and structural equation modeling (SEM) have been used. The results showed that perfectionism and rumination are considered as good predictors for Procrastination. Also there are significant and positive causal relationships between perfectionism, rumination and Procrastination. based on findings of structural equation modeling and the role of mediating of rumination in the relationship between perfectionism and Procrastination has been verified. This finding indicates that the use of rumination as a coping strategy in people with negative perfectionism leads to procrastination and negligence.
