AbstractGovernment with Decision No. 12 of 2012 on higher education states that every university will be authorized to operate and issue a diploma after accreditation. Accreditation is the acknowledgment of the public or external parties to the college concerned and is also a form of assessment of the quality and feasibility of institutions conducted by independent organizations such as the National College Accreditation Committee (NHE-AC). Private higher education institutions under the coordination of Kopertis XII region, Maluku and North Maluku face challenges and difficulties to compete. In 2016, from 44 private universities under the coordination area of Kopertis XII only 7 of them have institutional accreditation status. This amount is considered very little compared to other Kopertis region’s, therefore need further research to reveal the challenges faced by universities. The purpose of this research is to know the factors causing low accreditation submission among private universities under coordination of Kopertis region XII. The method used is qualitative descriptive approach. Data collection techniques are conducted through interviews and observation; Data were analyzed using Ishikawa or fishbone diagram. The results of this study indicate that of the 7 criteria given by BAN-PT, there are several factors causing the low delivery of accreditation by universities, namely: the vision and mission that has not been socialized and well understood by all parts of the academic community; Internal management within organizations that have not met standard operating procedures (SOPs); quality assurance agencies that have not been functioning properly; unqualified human resources, limited facilities and infrastructure; information systems are only partially available; curricula that are inconsistent with higher national education standards; interest of lecturers to conduct research and low dedication of education; and low number of publications.
