The convenience sampling method was used for selecting participants. The data were analyzed by One-Way ANOVA and independent-sample t- tests using a statistical package program (SPSS 10.0). As a result, Wi-Fi-using undergraduate students had higher attitude scores in Taking Precautions, Individual Characteristics dimensions and in total scores of USASOE. Female undergraduate students had higher attitude scores in the Taking Precautions dimension. Moreover, students who spend more hours on the internet had higher attitude scores and in  on-line exams computer using students also had higher attitudes.Finally, in the Taking Precautions dimension, students who always or sometimes attend on-line courses had more positive attitudes than the ones who never attend on-line courses.
