The present research shows the relationship between the variables of self-regulation, self-efficacy and academic performance among students of undergraduate academic programs in the virtual modality in the universities of southern Colombia. The research was cross-sectional and quantitative, in which 280 surveys with Likert-type questions were applied and the Structural Equations Model was used to validate the hypotheses with the SPSS - AMOS software. The result was the confirmation of a positive and significant relationship between the study variables, and the strong influence generated by self-regulation and self-efficacy on academic performance is corroborated. Finally, the self-regulation and self-efficacy needs in the training processes are evidenced, in order to ensure a certain level of academic success in virtual higher education.


Keywords –Self-regulation, self-efficacy, academic performance, virtual higher education.
