Results. About 2.4% of students were tested for HIV and 8% expressed intentions to get tested. More males had multiple partners (60% vs. 35%) with a little less than half (46%) reporting they used condoms compared to .41% of females. The regression model fit the SA students (r 2 = 0.22) better than virgin students (r2 = 0.16). The best fit was for not currently sexually active (NCSA) men (r2 = 0.39). Vulnerability and perceived consequences were the two key predictors in all groups, especially among currently sexually active women (CSA) (B = -0.35, -0.41). Partner related beliefs were significant only among CSA men whereas peer norms were significant among CSA, NCSA men and virgin students. Access to testing was an additional predictor among virgin students.
