In recent years, the use of smart phones has become widespread, which has brought the fear of being away from the phone. The aim of this study is to examine according to the gender, class, department, average and teaching type of the nomofobile of associate degree students' who are one of the group use most intensive smartphones. 346 volunteer university students with associate degree education participated in the study. The data were collected by using the Nomophobia Scale. The study is a study in the screening model. Independent t test, one-way analysis of variance (anova) and post hoc analysis were used to analyze the data. According to the results of the study, significant differences were found in favor of female students according to gender variable and in favor of local management and foreign trade department students according to department variable. A significant difference in the nomophobia of associate degree students in favor of female students according to gender variable may be due to the fact that female students follow subjects such as art and fashion more than men. Increased nomophobia levels of students may have negative effects on their success in their courses. Technological advances have the potential to directly and indirectly increase the average success of courses. Therefore, measures should be taken regarding nomophobia and other technological dependencies and technology should be used in a way that does not turn into addiction.
