The present study aimed to predict spiritual wellbeing based on spiritual intelligence and resilience in college students. The statistical population consisted of all students at Islamic Azad University-Science and Research, Tehran for the academic year 2015-2016 and the statistical sample was selected through simple random sampling using Cochran’s formula, allowing for a subject loss of 150. Research tools included the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (2003), Spiritual Intelligence Scale (Abdollahzadeh & Keshmiri, 1999), and Spiritual Wellbeing Scale (SWBS; Paloutzian & Ellison, 1991). Statistical methods used in data analysis consisted of inferential and descriptive statistics; standard regression was used to obtain inferential indices while internal consistency of test items was assessed using Cronbach’s alpha values. The findings suggest that, when controlling for resilience, spiritual intelligence significantly contributed to predicting spiritual wellbeing while resilience could not predict spiritual wellbeing. In addition, spiritual wellbeing was positively correlated to spiritual intelligence among the college students at 0.001. Spiritual wellbeing was weakly and positively correlated to resilience at 0.001. Spiritual intelligence and resilience were moderately and positively correlated at 0.001. Discussion and Conclusion: spiritual intelligence can predict spiritual wellbeing and an increase in spiritual wellbeing scores results in higher spiritual intelligence scores which are likely to increase resilience scores of the sample studied here.
