In the study, literature was searched primarily and the subject was explained. Then using the survey technique; 680 students determined by easy sampling method and data were collected from the sample. The data were analyzed using SPSS packet programs. As a result; it is determined that the level of political participation of the students is low and that those who have political party members in the family generally have a higher participation level. It is seen that students are divided into two in terms of trust in the political system in Turkey. However, it has been determined that there is a significant relationship between the education level of the students parents and the level of political participation.
