The accreditation of state and private higher education institutes in Indonesia is at a standstill due to a lack of government funding. Of 3,216 higher education institutes under the auspices of the Ministry of Education and Culture, only around 70% have been accredited, despite the fact that accreditation is essential to ensuring teacher and course quality. It also has a bearing on the legality of the certificates issued to alumni. However, the allocation of sufficient funding for accreditation appears to not be a priority.
