This study examined "propensity to trust" of students studying at a foreign university. Responses were collected from 576 international students from 71 countries attending a large private institution of higher education in the Midwestern United States. Findings indicated that students who were not native speakers of the dominant language had a lower propensity to trust than native English speakers, and female students had a lower propensity to trust than did male students. Findings also indicated that during the senior year of school propensity to trust was significantly lower than in earlier undergraduate years and in graduate school.
