The first two admission processes are national selection processes.

There are two types of selection process: (a) students are admitted based on their performance in their high schools, demonstrated by their report grades and other academic achievements. This type of selection is called National Selection for State Universities Entrance (Seleksi Nasional Masuk Perguruan Tinggi Negeri/SNMPTN) and (b) students are admitted after taking a nationwide-written exam called Collective Examination for State Universities Entrance (Seleksi Bersama Masuk Perguruan Tinggi Negeri/SBMPTN) – anyone can take the exam provided that they graduate from their high school within two years of their graduation date.
The third process is called the Independent Entrance Examination (Jalur Mandiri). It is a selection process administered by Universitas Gadjah Mada. The University, with inputs from the degree programs, sets adjustable passing grade depending on the quota numbers to determine who will be admitted in the study program.
The fourth admission process is the performance-based / achievement-based selection that also administered by Universitas Gadjah Mada. This selection consists of 3 categories, 1) the search for outstanding students promoted by any government institutions either in national or local level and credible corporates, 2) the search for economically disadvantaged individuals with outstanding academic achievement, 3) the search for students with outstanding achievements in sport and/or arts. The first category held under UGM partnership with local government/government institution or credible private bodies who concern on local regional development. This category is intended for students who have a high commitment to contributing to their hometown development. The second category aims at students who have high academic performance but come from an economically disadvantaged background. The third category is intended for students who have achievements in the field of sports and arts. Examples of the third category are winners in either Science and Technology, Sports, Arts competitions at the province, national, or international levels.
