ABSTRACT
This study examined the extent to which selected social cognitive theory constructs predict alcohol use and binge drinking behaviors among Asian Indian students. A 46-item valid and reliable questionnaire was administered online to college students (n=245) at two large Mid-western universities. Sixty two percent of Indian students consumed alcohol in the past 30 days. Alcohol-related self-efficacy (p<0.001) and self control for quitting alcohol (p<0.005) were significant predictors for average number of drinks consumed in a typical week. Alcohol use is a significant problem among Asian Indian college students and interventions for this community may be built based on SCT constructs.
