Abstract—The teaching and learning process has shifted online since the outbreak of COVID-19 in Indonesia. Students have had to adapt to the new situation. Thus, it is necessary to explore their self-efficacy and self-regulated learning. The objective of this paper is twofold: 1) to describe the profiles of students’ online learning self-efficacy and students’ online self-regulated learning; and 2) to investigate the relationship between self-efficacy and self-regulated learning in online learning among university students during the COVID-19 pandemic. This quantitative study included a sample (n = 260) of university students enrolled in an accounting education study program. First, the study found that students exhibit a high level of online learning self-efficacy and online self-regulated learning. Second, the results of this study revealed a strong positive correlation between students’ online self-efficacy and online self-regulated learning (r = 0.67, p < 0.0005). This indicates that students’ high levels of online self-efficacy are correlated with their high levels of online self-regulated learning.
