The paper employs academic self-efficacy scale and CEQ to investigate 400 university students in Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics. The relationship among academic self-efficacy,CEQ , course satisfaction and the mediating effect of CEQ are examined. The results indicate that there is no significant difference between male and female students' scores on three variables. However,urban students do show higher level of academic self-efficacy than rural students. Academic self-efficacy has a direct effect on course satisfaction. Moreover, course experience plays a partial mediating role in the relation between academic self-efficacy and course satisfaction.

Key words: academic self-efficacy, course satisfaction, course experience, mediating effect, demographic differences
