Diploma Program (D3) was one of the educational programs carried by Faculty of Economics, Universitas Negeri Padang in addition to Undergraduate, Master and Doctorate Program. D3 Program which consisted of three courses, such as accounting study program, trade management study program and tax management study program officially moved from previous office to new office at Integrated Class Room Building (Gedung A) since Monday, February 26, 2018. Previously, The office of D3 Program located on the 2nd floor of the Faculty of Economics building was moved to the 1st floor of Gedung A. The location of Gedung A is in front of Faculty of Economics building.
The migration of D3 office was intended to facilitate and accelerate the process of academic service for the students which mostly carry out the lecture activities in Gedung A. These were the impact of increasing of Faculty of Economics students so that the available classrooms in the Faculty of Economics building were no longer sufficient for the implementation of teaching and learning activities and it shifts lectures activities of some students, especially students of D3 Program to Gedung A.
Almost a month, D3 Program students have accustomed to administer all academic purposes in the new office. It was expected that the future service activities can be improved not only through access affordability but also the quality of service.
