LINTAR streamlines the services necessary for new students, transfer students, online enrollment, course participation, and graduation assessment. LINTAR also administers all processes of tuition fee payments.

Student LINTAR is built to facilitate students in accessing academic information, such as course schedule, biodata, semester course results, mark history, enrollment status, tuition fee, past tuition fee payment, scholarship registration, course attendance, announcement, subject enrollment, course material download, student’s book loan, and others. LINTAR also supports parents staying up-to-date with their children’s progress. For example, academic announcements, enrollment status, marks, tuition fee bills, and past payments. For lecturers, LINTAR facilitates e-learning that covers course material uploads, on-line class participants and attendance, and assessments. The university’s information system provides email accounts for all staff and students, tailored to single sign on that allows them to access other facilities. In addition, the information system builds a tracking system to automate correspondences at the faculty and university levels.  A tracking system can be accessed through the internet and intranet.
