ITS Director of Education, Dr. Eng. Siti Machmudah, S.T., M.Eng., explained that based on the data obtained, the number of SNMPTN registrants in ITS this year decreased compared to the previous year with 1.223 registrants. This is due to the reduced quota for new student admissions through SNMPTN at 20 percent by LTMPT. “The 1.022 applicants that have been accepted through SNMPTN are the 20 percent of the total quota for new students of ITS enrolled in 2020,” she revealed.
The 1.022 seats offered by ITS were competed by 13.850 applicants. There was an increase in this number compared to the previous year with only 10.707 applicants.
According to this Chemical Engineering lecturer, the significant increase was due to the contribution of current ITS students that promoted ITS in their respective high schools. “Especially students who joined the activities of Ini Lho ITS!,” she mentioned.
In addition, the majority of SNMPTN applicants in ITS belongs to the East Java Province with 5.463 registrants. Meanwhile, the Department of Informatics gained the most interest this year with a total of 1.627 applicants and 61 were accepted. Whereas the Department of Mechanical Engineering itself has prioritized women in this year’s SNMPTN. “In fact, there are 24 out of 52 seats that have been prepared for women,” she pointed out.
Machmudah emphasized that students who were accepted through SNMPTN in ITS decided to not re-register or in other words, resigned, ITS will not be giving any exclusive sanction in the form of blacklisting to the student’s high school origin. Instead, the sanctions will be in the form of a reduction in the SNMPTN quota that was supposedly received by that high school in the following year.
In conclusion, Machmudah hopes that applicants who have been accepted to immediately read the announcement released very carefully on the schedule and preparation for the online re-registration via smits.its.ac.id/pengumuman/snmptn. “And as for this year’s tuition or Uang Kuliah Tunggal (UKT), still remains the same with a maximum of Rp7,5million per semester,” she elaborated.
