disease. The linkage of blood cholesterol with fat as a source of calorie intake shows improvement. Consuming fat use higher will disproportionately increase blood cholesterol levels. Total fat intake will lower blood cholesterol levels of PUFA. Reducing cholesterol will give the effect of lowering blood cholesterol levels. Student of Health Polytechnic of Yogyakarta is an adult who needs to maintain health status. Therefore, research should be conducted to determine whether there is a relationship between fat intake, intake of PUFAs and cholesterol intake with blood cholesterol levels in college students.
Objective:To identify the correlation between fat intake, intake of PUFAs and cholesterol intake with blood cholesterol levels in Yogyakarta Health Polytechnic student

Fat intake, intake of PUFAs and cholesterol intake from food records obtained during three consecutive days. Blood cholesterol levels obtained with CHOD-PAP method (enzymatic photometric test). Testing research hypotheses with Karl Pearson correlation test and partial correlation test.
Results:As many as 77.8% samples total fat intake as recommended; sample 64% of PUFA intake as recommended, 75.8% of the sample of cholesterol intake as recommended. As many as 92% of normal blood cholesterol levels in samples, less than 200 mg/dl.
