Bu araştırmanın amacı üniversitede öğrenim gören öğrencilerin üniversiteye sosyal ve akademik entegrasyon düzeylerinin yükseköğrenimin ilk yılı ile üçüncü yılı arasındaki değişimin ortaya çıkarmaktır. Boylamsal araştırma modelinde olan bu çalışmanın örneklemi Marmara bölgesinde yer alan bir devlet üniversitesinin çeşitli fakülte ve bölümlerinde öğrenim gören 134 öğrenciden oluşmaktadır. Braxton (1998) tarafından geliştirilen ve araştırmacılar tarafından Türk dil ve kültürüne uyarlanan ölçme aracı kullanılarak 3 yıl arayla toplanan veriler kullanılarak yapılan araştırmada ölçümlerden elde edilen sonuçların karşılaştırılması amacıyla Wilcoxon İşaretli Sıralar testi kullanılmıştır. Araştırma sonucunda öğrencilerin ilk ve son ölçüm arasında geçen süre zarfında sosyal ve akademik uyum düzeylerinde önemli değişiklikler olduğu saptanmıştır
