Curhat Dosen: Sorry Ibu, You Aren’t Dosen Tetap UI!


0

Dear friends who concern with education,

This story is based on my colleague, whose also has the same status as me “Dosen Luar Biasa” (Special Lecturer) with by attendance salary scheme. Her daughter passed her test at SIMAK UI last semester, and she’s studying at Faculty of Engineering (Fakultas Teknik/FT), majoring in metallurgy. Her mother was so proud and happy that day because it’s rare that female student took this subject, although she had to think how to pay the admission, tuition and other administration payment.

The admission was Rp 25 million and administration + other payment Rp 600 thousand. Every semester she has to pay the tuition Rp 7.5 million, and health package (DKFM) Rp 100 thousand/semester. In total last semester she had to pay Ro 33.2 million. She felt this was too expensive for her, therefore she was asking some deduction.

First she failed to get some deduction, with the reason that she lives in an upscale area in Jakarta Pusat. She tried to explain how her family standard of living and income to the administration. They didn’t believe her. Nevertheless she didn’t give up hope and tried other ways.

Then she met the vice dean of education of FT and explained to him. He said that she had to get a recommendation letter from the dean of the Faculty of Social and Political Studies (FISIP), because she teaches under this faculty. After back and forth to complete all the inquiries, she got a 50% deduction for admission and tuition. She felt relief; at least UI gave some appreciation for 12 years of her dedication.

First semester her daughter can study smoothly until nearly the end of the semester. She saves her money for tuition Rp 3.75 million + Rp 100 thousand for DKFM .She knew that she had to ask some recommendation letter again to the dean of FISIP for the tuition deduction.

However suddenly she’s stunned to hear,”Ibu you can’t get the deduction because you’re not full time lecturer (Dosen Tetap) of UI. You’re only Special Lecturer,” the FISIP administration said.
“How come that last semester I got a deduction?”
“We made a mistake last semester, deduction is only for full time lecturer. But you don’t have to pay the remaining last semeseter tuition. But this semester you have to pay it full.”
“So I have to pay in total Rp 7.6 million including the DKFM?”
“Yes ibu!”

She’ so devastated to hear that.

The other alternative is she tries to find a scholarship, but scholarship will be available if the student is already on her 3rd semester, with her grade point average (GPA) at least 3.0. She just prays and hopes that her daughter will succeeded have a high GPA.

Oh bloody hell!! Every semester UI policy will change. The bottom line is: Dosen Luar Biasa is just an outsider of UI education!

  1. hmm, buat saya hal ini menunjukkan satu hal, betapa paradigma UI tentang pendidikan sudah sangat jauh dari konsep-konsep pedagogi, dan tujuan untuk mencerdaskan kehidupan bangsa.
    Pertama, tentang bagaimana kebijakan UI yang saya nilai diskriminatif terhadap pengajar yang sudah mendidikasikan ilmu dan amalnya untuk mencerdaskan mahasiswanya.

    Saya pikir tidak selayaknya UI mendiskriminasikan pengajar dengan melihat statusnya, apalagi secara substantif, kebijakan ini terkait dengan fasilitas mendapatkan keringanan.

    Namun demikian, saya melihat bahwa masalah sebenarnya adalah kesalahan paradigma terhadap kenijakan pendanaan, dalam kasus ini pendanaan yang diperoleh dari mahasiswa. Seharusnya UI mampu menjamin bahwa semua yang sudah lulus ujian bisa mengakses atau masuk ke UI tanpa beban kesulitan financial.

    Artinya, siapapun itu harus bisa masuk UI. Sehingga, baik anak dosen, maupun anak pengusa, anak petani, maupun anak pejabat bisa masuk UI. Bukan karena kebijakan atau fasilitas keringanan bagi pihak-pihak tertentu, Melainkan karena memang UI bisa terjangkau oleh siapa saja..

    Selain itu, saya juga melihat bahwa prioritas kebijakan UI (terutama dalam hal pendanaan) harus kembali ditinjau. Terlebih bahwa sekarang ini UI sudah semakin mahal, semakin leluasa mengambil uang yang katanya hanya terhadap yang kaya, agar bisa subsidi silang, tapi kenyataannya makin banyak yang ga bisa masuk UI. Bahkan banyak kejadian dimana mereka sudah lulus ujian tetapi tidak jadi masuk UI karena penetapan BOP..

    Mungkin Ibu juga bisa memberikan gambaran mengenai kesejahteraan dosen, yang menurut saya juga merupakan komponen penting untuk diprioritaskan..

    Apakah bisa masuknya seorang anak ke UI, atau terjaminnya kesejahteraan seorang dosen, tidak lebih penting dibandingkan pembangunan kandang rusa dan perawatannya?

  2. Not only you ma’am who have treated like that.
    Many of my friends received that unpleased act from the administration staff 🙂

    My suggestion is, you can tell it directly to rektorat or you can meet the BEM students in FT.
    I hope your problem can be solved soon.

  3. rektorat UI ngelibas semuanya demi uang, bahkan dosen.. mgk lain kali dosen perlu juga ikutan aksi. smoga anak bu dosen bisa dapet beasiswa. klo birokrat udah ga bisa diharapkan, saya yakin IMMt dan BEM FT masih mau bantu anak Ibu.

  4. Kalau beasiswa kemarin ada beasiswa PPA khusus untuk mahasiswa baru sebesar 250 rb/bulan atau 1,5 juta per semester. Saran saya bu, nanti di semester depan ada beasiswa tanoto sebesar 500rb/bulan atau 3jt/semester dengan syarat IP diatas 3,3.

    wish you luck
