The present study aims to adapt the “Academic Resilience Scale-30” (ARS-30) into Turkish and examine its validity and reliability. The Ars-30 consists of a three-factor structure: perseverance, reflective and adaptive help-seeking, negative affectivity, and emotional response. The study sample consisted of 687 students. As a result of the CFA analysis, it was determined that the scale was in good agreement with the three-factor structure determined in its original form. Similar scale validity analyzes of the scale were made with the general self-efficacy scale and significant positive relationships were determined between both scales. The overall reliability Cronbach Alpha coefficient of the ARS-30 is.89; The Cronbach’s alpha coefficients of the ARS-30 subscales varied from .71 to .85, thus indicating an acceptable level. As a result, it can be said that ARS-30 is a valid and reliable measurement tool for university students in Turkey.
