University students alike other human and social groups encounter certain pressures due to their role. According to the literature of strain theories, increasing strain is associated with the increased likelihood of deviant or criminal behavior. The purpose of this article is to present and localize policies and programs to reduce students’ deviant behaviors based on political implications of strain theories. This paper employs a sociological perspective and relies on a documentary method in order to addressing theoretical concepts and issues and policy implications of strain theories, and programs implemented resulting from these implications in other countries. For reducing students’ deviant behaviors the policy implications of strain theories, in three levels: micro, middle, and macro levels, and the proposed programs inspired by these policies, in three categories: short, medium, and long-term, have been localized and presented. Given the conditions and how these programs are implemented, and given the indigenous conditions within the country, with greater confidence, policymakers are able to implement proper policy and present effective crime prevention programs. This also leads to saving money, time and resources and to increase efficiency.
