Admissions of new students must meet the principles of credibility, fairness, transparency, flexibility, efficiency, and accountability, and non-discrimination. Higher education institutions as education providers accept prospective students with high academic achievements who are predicted tobe able tocomplete their studies on time. For this reason, the admission of new students at UPI is carried out by following the rules set by the Directorate General of Higher Education, the Ministry of Education and Culture as well as the applicable regulations at UPI. Admission of new students is carried out through various selection channels, such as National Selection for State Universities (SNMPTN), Joint Selection for State Universities (SBMPTN), Independent Selection of Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia (SM UPI), and Special Achievements. An explanation of the selection mechanism and its capacity can be seen in the description below:
SNMPTN is achannel of new students’admissionheld nationally for undergraduate education programs. The SNMPTNselectionis carried out by means of academic achievements and portfolios (specifically for arts and sports) at the the secondary education level (SMA, MA, SMK). Data processing and organizing are carried out by the Higher Education Entrance Test Institution (LTMPT, http://ltmpt.ac.id). LTMPT is the only standard university test provider in Indonesia. Information regarding requirements, selection stages, registration procedures, and schedules, and capacity are available at https://pmb.upi.edu/sarjana/snmptn/.
SBMPTN is achannel of new student’sadmissionfor undergraduate education programs carried out jointly with other state universities through Computer-Based Written Examinations (UTBK) and portfolios in arts and sports (specifically for arts and sports). This selectionisheld by LTMPT. Information regarding general provisions, prerequisites, and registration stages, portfolios on SBMPTN registration, UTBK fees, schedules, and capacity are available at https://pmb.upi.edu/sarjana/sbmptn/.
SM UPI (available at https://pmb.upi.edu/sarjana/seleksi-mandiri/) new student admissions held independently through the following channels:
UPI Independent Selection (SM UPI) is the selection to recruit new studentsof Diploma 3 and Bachelor program designed separately by UPI. Prospective students for the dual-mode program and the Second Bachelor program are specifically selected through a portfolio assessment.

UPI PI pathwayis designed toincrease thecompetitiveexcellence and achievement of UPI studentsin the future at the national and international levels.
The number of student capacity in 2016 –2021 according to various selection channels in Study Program Computer Science and Computer Science Education can be seen in the table below. It can be seen that in total we always attempt to maintain the number of students. Moreover, the number of students via SBMPTN usually have higher capacity.
|Study Program||Capacity in 2016||Capacity in 2017||Capacity in 2018||Capacity in 2019||Capacity in 2020||Capacity in 2021|
