... gy by distributing a questionnaire to six public universities in Malaysia. A total of 317 university undergraduate students participated in the current study of self-regulated online learning questionnaire (SOL-Q). Hypothesis testing was done by using inferential analysis in SPSS Version 22. Quantitative data analysis showed that students have a medium level of SRLs. The results varied based on the study years of the students in SRLs, but, not on their gender. The metacognitive skills are found influential on students' academic outcomes (GPA). The study has reflected the need to enhance students' SRLs to develop 21st-century skills for life-long learning. The implications of the results for language learning and educational practices may be suitable for students and instructors of the faculty.
