Aims: The aim of the present study was to compare the rate of risky behaviors and those factors in the college students from military and non-military families.

Methods: This research was cross-sectional.

The data gathering instrument was Mohammadkhani high risk and protective behaviors. Data were analyzed by chi-square and MANCOVA using SPSS 18.

Results: There was a significant difference in sexual behaviors, cigarette smoking, bubble, alcohol, marijuana, opium, methamphetamine and Tramadol pills rates but not suicide rate between students from military and nonmilitary families. Results indicated that the mean scores on the attitude towards drug use, sensation-seeking and family conflicts in military families are less than the other groups.
