NTHU has implemented a regular assessment system to perform an assessment and accreditation program every five years. The assessment items include academic performance in research and teaching, social responsibility such as the admission and financial support for disadvantaged students, the recruiting faculty and staff considering gender equality and diversity, and the alumni contributions to societies.
Regularly, the Institutional Research Center keeps track and analyzes the academic performance of disadvantaged students and the assistance needed by surveys for the university to assess the policies of diversity, equality, and inclusion.

In addition, disadvantaged students believe that scholarship assistance and accommodation priority are the best way to help students continue their studies at National Tsing Hua University.
