A total of 1,883 students graduated in the National Selection For State University Entrance (SNMPTN) at Syiah Kuala University. The student is required to follow several important stages in the form of verification of academic data. But different from the previous, this year prospective students on the SNMPTN path are not allowed to come to campus to verify the data. This follows the Unsyiah Rector Circular on the protocol for implementing academic, non-academic activities, education personnel, task forces and crisis centers in preventing the spread of covid-19.
Unsyiah Rector, Prof. Dr. Ir. Samsul Rizal, M.Eng.IPU said that this step was taken to suppress the spread of covid-19 in Aceh. Because according to him, if the data verification was carried out like in previous years, there would be a large mass accumulation. It is feared that it could cause vulnerability to the transmission of the covid-19 virus. This service is not only intended for prospective students outside the region, prospective students who live in the surrounding Banda Aceh are also required to follow a similar procedure.
"Unsyiah as much as possible minimizes face-to-face meetings to suppress the spread of co-19. This step is also to support the implementation of physical distancing. Moreover, Unsyiah prospective students come from many cities in Indonesia, "said Prof. Samsul, Saturday (04/11/2020).
In exchange, the data verification of prospective new students is carried out in several stages. For submission of original report cards, original performance certification, and photocopy of SNMPTN 2020 Participant Card, prospective students can send it via registered delivery services, such as PT Pos Indonesia, TIKI, JNE, J&T, and others.
Prospective students are also asked to fill out biodata and send a photocopy of KKM certificate for those KKM scores not written in the report card. The biodata form can be downloaded at the website www.unsyiah.ac.id.
"When sending the file, we remind prospective students not to forget to include their biodata and KKM certificate if it is not written on the report card," said Samsul.
All completeness of this file is sent to the address of UPT TIK Syiah Kuala University ICT Center Building Unsyiah-Taiwan, Darussalam, Banda Aceh, 23111. Schedule for file submission takes place 13-20 April 2020 and the deadline for receipt of files by the verification committee of the shipping service on April 22 2020 at 12.00 WIB. The Chancellor also added, for prospective students whose files have been received, can print proof of file acceptance through the page http://snmptn.pmb.unsyiah.ac.id starting April 23, 2020.
Report card verification will take place on 21-24 April 2020. Different from the previous year, this year's report card verification does not have to be attended by prospective students. While for the announcement of the results of report card verification will be announced on April 27, 2020 through the page www.unsyiah.ac.id.
The Chancellor also said that for prospective students who did not pass verification, the committee would contact them to clarify. This disclaimer period lasts from 28-30 April 2020 through communication using Whatsapp.
"When clarifying, prospective students must be accompanied by the principal or appointed teacher," continued rector.
The results of the clarification will be announced on May 4, 2020 at 15:00 WIB. Prospective students who pass the verification and clarification, are required to re-register on May 5, 2020 and can be viewed through the website www.unsyiah.ac.id
"For prospective students who do not re-register according to the schedule, are considered resigning," said the Rector.
He also hoped that prospective students would always monitor announcements through Unsyiah's website and social media. (Unsyiah PR / fer)
