This study seeks to examine empirically the internet adoption among Arabic students in Malaysia by applying the conceptual theory of technology acceptance model (TAM). The respondents comprise of 148 Arabic students. A questionnaire was designed to tap into the students’ perception on perceived usefulness of the internet, perceived ease of use of the internet, and perceived credibility on technology, and adoption of the internet itself. Four hypothesized relationships were tested in the research model. The data was analyzed using multivariate technique to test the causal effects amongst variables. From the analysis, the hypotheses succeed to be supported (p<.05). The findings support the TAM theory extremely well. The finding is discussed in the context of internet adoption among Arabic students in East Malaysia.
