The studyconducted on a total of 693 students from three Universities. The GSE translated into Turkishusing translation-back translation method. For the construct validity, principal componentsanalysis with varimax rotation was used. As a result of the factor analysis, a two-factor structurewith eigenvalues higher than 1 emerged. In order to check criterion validity of GSE, Coping withStress Scale and Rosenberg's Self-Esteem Scale were used. Alpha internal consistencies for thetwo factors were found between .79 and .63 respectively. The overall alpha internal consistencyof the GSE was found .83. Test-retest reliability scales was found to be (r=.80, p
