This paper is based to answering a question: Is there any relationship between Self-Regulated Learning Strategies (SRLS) and the level of Internet Competency (IC) in Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) Degree Students in various subjects include: PMCs, PCM and CBZ or not? This was a correlation study with prediction and analytical research. Among 254 Bachelor of Science Degree Students in final year who had taken out of 4 particular colleges which are stand for Mysore University Constituent College, Governmental College, Private Unaided and Private Aided College. Any one has chosen for convenience sampling method. The Motivational Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ) have occupied to assess in Learning Strategies in total and scale wise. The Internet Competency tools prepared by researcher who had made to assess the level of Internet Competency in total and component wise. The data has analyzed using Pearson's correlation coefficient and Multiple Regression. As a matter of fact researcher has found that in his two variables include: Self-Regulated Learning Strategies and Internet competency among Bachelor of Science Degree Students in various subjects such as: PMCs, PCM and CBZ has a positive relationship in total.
