Due to today’s globalized era, there is a strong need to prepare skilled and competent future generations. This, of course, will involve the contribution from many parties including authorities and universities. In Indonesia, the ministry of education, culture, research, and technology has released a document to recognize student’s achievement as well as graduates’ competencies. This document will not only describe the academics history from the students, but also encourage Indonesian universities to take part in increasing young generations achievements through various academic programs. Although all universities have implemented the policy with different approaches, there has been a concern in scoring system once recognizing the activities achieved by students. In particular, the issue of unfair weight determined in the scoring system may be appeared. Therefore, this study addresses this issue by employing an MCDM approaches to improve the scoring system of student’s portfolio document. A case study in a private university situated in Indonesia is selected to apply the model. This study focuses on criteria within the most preferred category determined by the DMs in the university. The result indicated that there were 11 criteria screened based on the effort and impact variables. These criteria belong to high impact – low effort category. Then, these 11 criteria were weighted using the fuzzy AHP. The obtained weighted can be adopted by the DMs to improve more relevant and accountable student’s portfolio scoring system. However, a follow-up study should be carried out by taking into account the whole criteria in all categories
