UNAIR NEWS – Related with misleading information circulated in the public which says that getting into UNAIR is expensive, UNAIR Rector Prof. Dr. Moh. Nasih, SE., MT., Ak., held a prize contest. The objective was to anticipate illegal practice of scalping in the independent admission.

”To anyone who can apprehend the scalper and reported to us, UNAIR will give them some prize. While the scalper will be processed accordingly,” said UNAIR Rector, Prof.  M. Nasih, to the journalists after breaking the fasting on Wednesday June 15.

His party is still hearing statements which says that getting into UNAIR is expensive. Unfortunately, it is not consistent with the Rector’s Decree.

“We’d like to make things clear,” said UNAIR Rector while explaining that the independent admission is still in registration phase. Specifically, UNAIR management wants to reduce scalping from happening, by apprehending the scalpers.

Regarding the contest, it was an appreciation to parties which have good will, his department will give some prize to anyone who can inform and apprehend the scalper or middleman, to be processed by Internal Supervising Board (BPI).

“We’ll provide prizes to anyone who can apprehend the scalper and inform us, of course the information must be accurate regarding the scalping practice,” he said.

About the prize amount, UNAIR management will discuss further. The plan is to adjust the prize with the amount of money made or promised by the scalper.

“The prize will depend on the transaction, if the apprehended is at four million transaction, the prize will adjust. It won’t be the same with the transaction which involves hundreds of million,” said Prof. Nasih who was accompanied by the head of PIH UNAIR, Drs. Suko Widodo, M.Si.

For the victim of scalping who has initiative to report, the information is expected to be accurate and reliable. The victimized student should also meet the passing grade requirement to get into UNAIR because the quota is limited. So, even the students meet the passing grade requirement, it does not mean that they are guaranteed to get into UNAIR.

“For example the quota for Faculty of Medicine (FK) is only 75 people from 2000 applicant, the students who meet the passing grade can reach 800 students. It means that the admitted ones are only the top applicants from number 1 to number 75. So if the victimized student is in the position, then we will help them to get into UNAIR as long as the report are accurate and they have good will,” he explained.

While the scalpers will be dealt with UNAIR management. UNAIR Rector emphasized that he will not be indiscriminate to anyone who practice the illegal activity.

”We will process the scalpers. If they are employess or lecturers for example, we will give punish accordingly. We can file the report to BPI for the further process,” he added.

Answering the question on special ‘allocation’ given to some parties in the selection, Prof. Nasih affirmed that there is no such thing as special ‘allocation’ because this independent admission purely depend on the test results, without considering the amount of the students’ donation for education development and improvement (SP3).

”There is no allocation, even for professors, employees even the rector. We take the students purely from the test results,” said the professor of Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) UNAIR. (*)
