Through of a series of publications, Arnett described the period of the post-adolescence to mid-twenties in the life of a person as emerging adult period. The main purpose of this study is to examine the aspects of adulthood and the criteria that determine the transition to adulthood phase of human life. The research approach is utilizing a target group of 332 Greek students of the University of Patras from two different Departments. The main research finding is that for the case of Greek students in higher education, emerging adulthood approach seems to be confirmed, as participants in the study view themselves not as adolescents nor as having reached adulthood. Factors that constitute their perception for adulthood are further elaborated in the presented data of the study. (EN)
