The cancellation of the increase in single tuition fees which has caused a stir in the last few weeks is good news for prospective new students. The hope for the nation's children to be able to receive higher education at affordable costs still exists.

The decision to cancel the single tuition increase (UKT) for state universities (PTN) was conveyed by the Minister of Education, Culture, Research and Technology (Mendikbudristek) Nadiem Makarim after meeting President Joko Widodo at the Palace Jakarta Presidency on Monday, May 27 2024. This decision was also taken after discussing it with the PTN chancellors and listening to the aspirations of the community.
