Sampoerna University is an educational institution of the Sampoerna Schools System of Indonesia. As an international university in Indonesia that operates under the auspices of the Putera Sampoerna Foundation, the Sampoerna Schools System aims to build and operate a system of schools that brings a complete range of high-quality international education to Indonesia.
Sampoerna University operates programs under the licensure and credentialing authorities of the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education of the Republic of Indonesia. Set up with national and international standards, Sampoerna University is uniquely qualified to make substantive contributions to society through education.
Sampoerna University is more than just a campus — it is a learning community that prepares students to succeed both academically and professionally. Here, students will not only learn and acquire academic rigor—they will be challenged to think, perform, and grow to a more advanced level. With our programs, students are assured to have better skills and credentials that will open the doors to both national or international careers after they graduate.
Sampoerna University seeks to admit students who are interested in an international-standard higher education and have the basic skills to succeed in an American-style university environment. As a university that teaches all of its programs in English, successful applicants should have at least a working knowledge of Academic English. In many cases, admitted students come from private, international high schools andthe very top performing public high schools.
Our admissions policies identify the minimum necessary qualifications for acceptance. For first-time-in-college applicants, this includes a minimum cumulative high school grade point average and minimum grade point averages in English and Mathematics (7.0 on a 10-point grading scale.) Applicants must also demonstrate college readiness in English and Mathematics by completing a standardized assessment or by providing a basis for an exception (i.e. completion of college-level English and Mathematics courses from a regionally accredited institution). Applicants who show promise but fall below the required scores in English and/or Mathematics may be admitted into a pre-university Developmental Education program. Students may take a combination of credit and non-credit courses while they address their deficiency in English and/or Mathematics.
The minimum necessary qualifications for acceptance for first-time-in-college applicants are:
Sampoerna University is committed to quality academic advising for all students. Advising serves a critical function for students. We support you in understanding academic expectations and will help you navigate academic curriculum, opportunities, and resources.
Each student at SU has an academic advisor who will provide guidance as you transition from high school to SU and will support you through graduation. Advisors ensure students are meeting the requirements of the general education curriculum, students’ chosen major, and will monitor their academic progress.
All students will create a degree plan that meets Sampoerna University’s education requirements and their educational and career objectives. The degree plans are a comprehensive list of the courses students must complete to satisfy their program requirements. Academic advisors will help develop and assess the educational degree plans created jointly between advisor and student.
