Objectives: This study aimed at assessing the validity and reliability of the Farsi version of Social Interaction Anxiety Scale (SIAS). Method: In a cross-sectional study, a sample of 150 students of Payam Noor University were selected by convenience sampling. After forward and backward translations, the Farsi version of SIAS with the Brief Fear of Negative Evaluation (BFNE) and the Social Phobia Inventory (SPIN) were used for data collection. Pearson’s correlation and independent T test were utilized to analyze data. Results: Test-retest reliability was 0.79 (Cronbach's alpha=0.90). Also, SIAS could differentiate males and females as expected females scored higher (p=0.035). There was a significant correlation between the SIAS and the BFNE (r=0.54, p<0.0001) and SPIN (r=0.68, p<0.0001). Conclusion: The Farsi version of SIAS has acceptable validity and reliability for use among the Iranian students.
