Our emphasis in this article is on student immigration from university to the hawza. The goal is to identify the motivations of these individuals and achieving a pattern of their motives. We conducted a qualitative research. We obtained samples of snowball sampling in Tehran and Qom, then We interviewed 23 with episodic interviews. We arrived to a triple typology of their motives. The main core of this is that these students make such choices with three different religious approaches, which are themselves linked to the instrumental motive of profit-centeredness. The first type select the hawza to protect of the traditional forms of religiosity against the replaceable elements in current society. We gave them the title of “religious protector”. The aim of second type is to create a peaceful link between religion and contemporary society's issues. We gave them the title of “religious messenger” . And finally The third type sees religion as a safe haven, Which can be useful to him in achieving social excellence, security, and socio-political benefits. We called them “security seeker”.
