Several theories have been proposed in an effort to better understand the psychosocial dynamics of student satisfaction. The main objectives of this study are to examine the correlation between Internal Locus of Control and students' Academic Satisfaction with faculty staff, the college administration, and textbooks; and to evaluate differences between males and females on academic satisfaction scale. The study sample consists of (120) University students in Najran, KSA, from different majors and colleges, (69) males and (51) females.
