Objectives The present study aimed at exploring the role of gender, marital status, coping strategies, religious orientation, and depression level in predicting suicidal tendencies using a correlational, and in some cases, practical methodology.
Methods The sample group included 260 bachelor students (175 male and 85 female; 213 single and 72 married) of Shiraz University in the academic year 2011-2012. The subjects were selected by a multi-stage cluster sampling method and then measured using Carver and Scheier Coping Strategy questioners (short form), Allport religious orientation questioners (short form), Beck Depression Inventory-II (BDI-II) and Beck Scale for Suicide Ideation (BSSI). The data were analyzed using enter regression method and SPSS 20 software.
Results Regression coefficients indicated that masculinity (B=0.83), ineffective coping style (B=5.91), specifically coping strategies for denial (B=1.04), self-blaming (B=0.81) and non-behavioral conflict (B=0.49) can positively and significantly predict the risk of suicide, while acceptance as coping strategy (B=-0.48) predicts this risk negatively and significantly. 
Conclusion The results showed that the above variables in the strongest predictive equation had 78% of the variance of suicide risk. Thus, when encountering the individuals exposed to suicidal risks, psychologists are expected to focus more on training coping methods.
