A. Education System
Education system adopted by all study programs in Trisakti University is Semester Credit System (SKS) namely system of education using Credits (sks) for study load, student learning experience, lecturer teaching load and study program load. Semester is a continuous time period where students study based on credit load planned at the beginning of the semester. In each semester there is an academic time schedule between 16 to 19 weeks of lectures or practicum; within this time period, supporting academic activities are performed and also evaluation activities. To achieve a Degree, every student must complete an amount of credits designated by each study program, namely between 144 and 160 credits, designed to be completed normally within 8 semester. The maximum study period for a student to complete respective study load/ total credits is 14 semester.
B. Student Eligibility
To become a student of Trisakti University every student must fulfill the following requirements:
High school diploma for Diploma 3 and Bachelor study programs, Bachelor degree for Masters program, and Masters degree for Doctoral program
Healthy both physically and mentally
Passed admission examination as student in Trisakti University
C. Learning Process
To prepare students to become scholars well prepared for working in the community, the University conducts several teaching methods namely:
Lectures/discussion/tutoring in class to equip students with theoretical knowledge
Practicum in laboratory/studio
Field work in the community
D. Evaluation System and Grade Point (GP)
In evaluating the student learning process at the end of each semester, the student is evaluated for each course work based on evaluation doneas by the lecturer/course coordinator. Evaluation system used is the following:
|A||4.00||80 ≤ n ≤ 100|
|A-||3.75||77 ≤ n ≤ 80|
|B+||3.50||74 ≤ n ≤ 77|
|B||3.00||68 ≤ n ≤ 74|
|B-||2.75||65 ≤ n ≤ 68|
|C+||2.50||62 ≤ n ≤ 65|
|C||2.00||56 ≤ n ≤ 62|
|D||1.00||45 ≤ n ≤ 56|
|E||0.00||n < 45|
Based on final scores the Grade Point Average for students is based on this formula Grade Point Average = Σ (Credit x Score) / Σ Credit Grade Point Average is calculated by multiplying the Credit load with the Score acquired for each course divided by the total Credit taken for each semester. Based on Grade Point Average, the maximum credits allowed for students in each semester is in the following table:
|Grade Points Average||Maximum (credits) allowed|
|2.50 - 2.99||22|
|2.00 - 1.50||20|
|1.00 - 1.50||16|
E. Between Semester Academic Program
Between two regular semesters there are two types of academic programs:
Learning Results Improvement Program (PPHB), objective is to provide opportunity for students to have comprehensive knowledge on previous learning materials
Short Semester Program (PSP), objective is to provide opportunity for students to shorten their study period
F. Learning Process
In following the learning process, the student is guided by the lecturers who are experts in their field of study and practitioners with experience in applying their profession in the community. Besides these experienced lecturers, students will be assisted by young teaching staff and senior students, who function to assist in completing assignments related to the course study and also as resource persons for students who desire to broaden their knowledge in a certain field of study.
Besides functioning as knowledge source, the lecturer with academic expereince will be assigned as academic advisor to several students to assist them in academic planning or other general issues.
G. Academic Leave
If the student because of a certain reason cannot continue the learning process during a whole semester, then the student can use the right for academic leave which is not considered included within the study period
Academic leave can only be given for a maximum of 2 (two) semesters continuously or 4 (four) semesters discontinuously, before the study period expires.
H. Study Evaluation
To ensure that the learning process is followed well by students, at the end of each semester an evaluation is done to determine the grade/grade points achieved by each student.
If in the first semester, the student can not achieve a grade point average of 2.00, then the student will receive a first written notice to improve their performance. A second written notice is given to the student who cannot achieve a minimum of 20 credits and a grade point average of 2.00.
Further, if at the end of the third semester and onwards the student cannot achieve a minimum of n x 10 credits (n=semester) with a grade point average of 2.00, then the student will be requested or declared as drop-out of the study program.
I. Fulfilling of academic requirements
Students are considered to have fulfilled all academic requirements by completing/passing all courses of an amount of credits including Thesis/ Final Assignment required by the respective study programs. For those students of the non Thesis track, the amount of credits mentioned above is replaced by a number of courses/field work and a comprehensive examination that are considered as passing all academic requirements.
Students fulfilling the above passing criteria have the right to receive a diploma and use the academic title based on the study program pursued. Passing predicate is based on student Grade Point Average, with criteria as follows:
|Grade Point Average||Predicate|
|3.51 - 4.00||Cum Laude|
|2.76 - 3.50||Very Good|
|2.00 - 2.75||Good|
