In each semester, the number of courses and each course that weighs in semester credit units (credits), as determined in the curriculum of each course.
Credits System is a system of education implementation related to student study load, lecturer’s burden, and burden of organizing an educational institution program expressed in credit unit. Semester Credit System (SKS) is a system of implementation of education by using credit units of semester (SKS) to express student study load, lecturer workload, learning experience, and program implementation burden.
Credit System Objectives
- The general objective of applying the credit system at the Universitas Airlangga Faculty of Humanities is to meet the demands of development because in its implementation, it is possible for the presentation of educational programs and learning events are more varied and flexible, thus giving wider possibilities for students to choose the program toward a kind of academic level or the particular profession/skill demanded by development, through the planning of its learning events from semester to semester.
- The specific objectives of applying the Semester Credit System are to:
- Provide opportunities for capable and well-studied students who can complete the study in a relatively short time, according to their abilities and plans;
- Provide opportunities for students to take courses appropriate to their talents, interests, and abilities;
- Open the possibility of implementation of the education system with more diverse inputs and outputs;
- Facilitate the adjustment of the curriculum over time, in accordance with the development of science and technology as well as the rapidly changing needs of society today;
- Allowing the evaluation system to study student learning progress can be conducted in a more rigorous and more objective manner; and
- Enables transfer of inter-faculty credit/study programs within Universitas Airlangga.
Characteristics of Credit System
Characteristics of the Credit System are as follows:
- The burden of student study in a course is expressed in a unit of value called a semester credit (SKS);

The value of student achievement of a subject at the end of the semester will be expressed in symbols of letters, namely A (4), AB (3.5), B (3), BC (2.5), C (2), D (1), and E (0).
Implementation of assessment of student learning outcomes in specific subjects that have been taken
Implementation of the assessment to determine the learning outcomes of a student in a particular course that he took was done through the following way.
- Course lecturer sets the score (ranged between 0 to 100) with a view to indicating his or her assessment of the student’s learning outcomes in the course that he or she has;
- The lecturer makes a relative assessment of student learning outcomes that have been calculated according to the following conditions.
Value of Score Range Score Value
A 75 – 100 4
AB 70 – 74,9 3,5
B 65 – 69,9 3
BC 60 – 64,9 2,5
C 55 – 59,9 2
D 40 – 54,9 1
E 0 – 39,9 0
- The semester grade of each course must be entered at UACC by the lecturer in charge of the course (PJMK) no later than two weeks after the final exams of the semester. The print out value is submitted to the administration of the course.
Value Conversions, Courses, and Student Exchange SKS
In relation to the student exchange program, the Faculty of Humanities (FIB) establishes matters relating to the conversion of recognized grades, courses, and credits.
- Value Conversions
Grade ACTS FIB Konversi
A 80-100 A
A- 75-79 >75 A
B+ 70-74 70-74.9 AB
B 65-69 65-69.9 B
B- 60-64 60-64.9 BC
C+ 55-59 55-59.9 C
C 50-54 50-54.9 C
C- 45-49 45-49.9 C
D+ 40-44 <45 D
D 35-39 D
F <34 E
- Course Conversion
Conversions made based on:
- Similarity in the content and the name of the course;
- Competence which includes: the course, course code, load, semester, prerequisite subject, competence, description, method, media, reference;
- Document Standard.
- SKS Conversion
- To the extent possible the number of credits earned at the destination college will be fully recognized by converting it to the same competency course;
- In the event that the course taken there is not the same as his / her course with the course in the course of study of origin will be recognized according to the amount of credit of the converted course; for example, 4 credits turned into 2 credits;
- In the case of courses pursued there no one has the same competence in the course of study of origin it will be recognized as document supplement.
Semester Credit System recognizes two types of Achievement Index, Semester Achievement Index (IPS) and Cumulative Achievement Index (IPK). IPS is a measure of the success of students in taking courses in one semester, while the IPK is a measure of student success calculated from the beginning of the study until the last semester that has been followed.
The amount of IPS and IPK can be calculated as follows:
IPS = Σ( Ks x N )
IPK = Σ( Kk x N )
Under the condition:
Ks = the number of credits of courses taken in the semester;
Kk = the number of credits of courses ever taken from the beginning to the corresponding semester without fail value (letter value E)
N = the weight value of each course
Based on the IPS obtained in the previous semester, the student’s learning load is calculated for the next semester.
Improvement of Achievement Index
Students receiving E for compulsory subjects must improve their grades by taking a repeat course in the academic year or the following semester. Improvement of achievement index can be done by students by repeating the course. Students who reprogram the courses are still required to attend the lectures and exam courses.
Evaluation of Study Results
Evaluation of student study result is done as follows:
- Evaluation of semester study results is done at the end of each semester for courses programmed by students in the semester which is stated with Semester Achievement Index (IPS);
- Evaluation of study result of S1 is conducted at the end of the second year, end of the fourth year, and at the end of the seventh year if not graduated yet;
- Evaluation results are used as a basis for determining whether students are allowed to continue or discontinue studies;
- Students are allowed to continue their studies if they have collected at least half the number of credits programmed into the curriculum with a minimum IPK of = 2.00;
- If the student has accumulated more than the minimum number of credits with a IPK of less than 2.00, the study evaluation is determined by calculating the best value as much as minimal credits;
- The minimum credits for each course are listed in the curriculum of each study program;
- Students are declared to have completed their studies if they have collected at least minimum credits (144 credits) with a minimum IPK of 2.00, no E score, got D as much as 20% of the total credits, completed the thesis with the value at least C, and have followed the graduation determination process(Yudisium);
- If the IPK achieved is less than required, the student may correct the value obtained, as long as the allowed study deadline has not been exceeded;
- For improved courses of value, the highest value ever achieved is used in the evaluation.
Total credits that must be obtained by students:
- S1 Indonesian Literature Program 144-160 credits
- S1 English Literature Program 144-160 credits
- S1 Science Program History 144-160 credits
- Undergraduate Program Japanese Literature 144-160 credits
