ACADEMIC GUIDE

Credit System

Education program is organized on the basis of Semester Credit System (SKS) which has been applied in all universities in Indonesia. In this system, to complete a course of study, each student is required to take a certain amount of study load expressed in the number of semester credit units (credits). One of the main features of the Credit System is that students are given the freedom to choose either the way or time period to complete the required study load under the guidance of a lecturer or academic supervisor. The main purpose of the Credit System is that students can pursue educational activities that match their interests, talents and abilities. More talented and hard-working students will be able to complete their studies in a relatively shorter time.

Semester Credit Units

In the Semester Credit System, the weight of each educational activity is assessed by the credits determined based on the study load to be performed by the student. In the Semester Credit System, education activities take place in a semester stage consisting of fourteen (14) weeks of lecture or practicum activity and a minimum of two (2) weeks of examination.

Study Load

The study load of a student each semester needs to be established taking into account two factors: individual student's capability and average learning time of day. If a student is considered able to work normally for 6 - 8 hours during the day plus for 2 hours at night, then in a week or 6 working days students can work for 48-60 hours. On this basis the average study load, a student per semester should be set between 16-20 credits. The student's study load every semester is set at the beginning of the semester in consultation with the Academic Advisor (DPA) considering the success study of the previous semester. The specified study load can be met by taking the required compulsory or elective courses by taking into account the prerequisite subject.

Academic Guidance

For each student is assigned an Academic Supervisor (DPA) who plays a role in providing guidance to students who become guidance to smooth study plan each semester. At the beginning of each semester, students need to consult with DPA to obtain academic counseling on the filling of Study Plan Card (KRS). In KRS contained all subjects that will be taken by students during the semester, in accordance with applicable provisions.

Exam and Assessment System

Testing is one method of student assessment when following a course. Trials are regularly scheduled or unscheduled and may consist of a Mid-term Examination (UTS) and Semester End Test (UAS). UTS is held at least once a semester both scheduled and unscheduled, while the UAS is held scheduled at the end of the semester. In addition to the above two exams, student assessment data can also come from various components such as homework, questions, answers, quizzes, test and others during the course.

The final score for a course is determined based on all the valuation data obtained from the various valuation activities above by assigning specific weights to each value data. The level of student ability is expressed by the value of the letters A, B, C, D and E which each has the meaning and weight numbers as follows:

Evaluation of Study Results

The achievement index (IP) is calculated by the following formula: IP = Σ K i N i / Σ K i, K i and N i each is the number of credits and the weight of the lecture value i

The evaluation of the study results is carried out at various stages of the study period at the end of the semester, at the end of the first two years, at the end of the study and at the end of the study period based on the number of credits that have been reached and the IP obtained.

Filling Study Plan Card (KRS)

Students who have been registered legally must fill out the KRS online at every beginning of the semester before entering the lecture period as a condition to follow the course, through IAIN Palu Integrated Information System (SIAKAD) with the address http://sia.iainpalu.ac.id/siakad. After the KRS on Integrated SIAKAD is filled and printed, the KRS needs to be approved by Academic Advisors (DPA). After obtaining a signature from DPA, students need to submit the KRS to the academic department of the faculty.

Printing Study Result Card

After the exam is completed and the examination has been examined by the examiner lecturer, the test result will be announced through SIAKAD integrated, Study Result Card (KHS) will be printed on the academic department of the Faculty. Any value incompatibility in SIAKAD Integrated needs to be resolved immediately through the academic section of the Faculty.

Final Evaluation

A student may be graduated from a Bachelor's degree if it has fulfilled the following conditions:

• have taken at least 144 credits, including all required compulsory courses and completion of the final project,

• Cumulative IP ≥ 2.0

• there is no E value on the 144 credits required,

• the number of credits of courses with a D value of not more than 25% of the total number of credits.
