During the admission process, UNPAS has opened three phases of registration. The first phase has been opened since January 4th, 2021.
UNPAS Vice Rector I who is also the Head of New Student Admission, Prof. Dr. H. Jaja Suteja, SE., M.Si. CFRM. DBA stated that the online process of New Student Admission is not much different than the onsite one.

He also added that the Interest and Skill Tracking process are done by each faculty while the university only provided few regulations. “The Interest and Skill Tracking process are done by the faculty, because they are the ones who know more about the detailed information of minimum skills required by the field of expertise or each study program.”

Therefore, the ratio between the number of students and lecturers is still normal at 1:30
