Population: The statistical population consisted of all the male undergraduate students of at the Behbahan Branch of the Islamic Azad University, and from among this population, 173 students were selected as the sample through simple random sampling method. Tools: The tools in this study were the religious orientation test (Bahrami Ehsan, 1383) and self-monitoring scale (Snyder, 1974). Methodology: The Method of the study was correlational. To analyze the data, not only the methods of descriptive statistics such as mean and standard deviation, but also methods of inferential statistical such as correlation and regression were used. Findings: The findings showed that there was a significant positive relationship between religious orientation (0.22) and valuation (0.62) with self-monitoring (p<0.01). Furthermore, there is a significant negative relationship between disorganization (-0.50) and self-fulfillment (0.28) with self-monitoring (p<0.01). In addition, the findings of regression analysis showed that the variables of valuation (β= 0.622), disorganization (β=-0.318) and self-fulfillment (β=-0.133) predict 0.49 of the variance of self-monitoring. In general, the findings of this study showed that increasing religious beliefs, religiosity and adherence to religious principles may be positive factors which can affect the various mental and physical aspects of the students.
