Abstract

In determining the quality of study programs, the National Accreditation Board for Higher Education (BAN-PT) will implement the use of new criteria that make an internal quality assurance system (IQAS) an important pillar. One of Study Programs in Politeknik Negeri Bandung (Polban), has obtained an excellence accreditation but through the BAN-PT forms which did not require the implementation of IQAS. Research was carried out by descriptive and correlational methods to maintain the excellence accreditation in 2020 and subsequent years for this study program. Several weaknesses and improvements were obtained. Several Polban’s IQAS documents have to be completed to include national criteria in accordance with the Minister of Research and Technology Regulation No. 44/2015 and 50/2018. The indicators in IQAS have to be completed in accordance with the mapping of internal standards results against the national standards and the study program accreditation assessment matrix.
