The matter was postponed to July 28, when Cobus Muller and Charl Blom will go on trial.
They allegedly tried to run over fellow-student Muzi Gwebu with their bakkie on the university’s Bloemfontein campus in February.
When Gwebu confronted the two students moments after this, he was allegedly assaulted.
The university said it regarded the matter in a serious light and was conducting its own investigation.
The university said the students, if found guilty in the criminal and institutional investigations, would be expelled.
