Religiousity remains a black box in the educational research. Only few studies conduct regarding religiousity, therefore need exploration in theme of student religiousity. This article aims to determine the direct and indirect effects of attitude, injunctive norm, moral norm, and perceived behavioral control on student's ethical behavioral intention through religiosity. There are 273 students as the samples of the study. Data were collected by questionnaire and analyzed using path analysis. The results found that injunctive norm, perceived behavioral control, and religiosity had direct effects on ethical behavioral intention. Meanwhile, attitude and moral norms did not have any direct effect on ethical behavioral intention. Furthermore, religiosity became the mediating variable of attitude, injunctive norm, moral norm, perceived behavioral control on ethical behavioral intention. The paper can explain black box that found religiosity or faith and belief would affect someone’s attitude to behave well. Moreover, attitude and moral norm would create good behavior when it was reinforced by strong religiosity.
