Based on Article 36 of the Indonesian 1945 Constitution, it is stated that the state language is Indonesian. In its position as the state language, Indonesian serves as the language of instruction in education. There is a tendency that Indonesian language use in formal situations is not following the rules of good and correct Indonesian. This study highlights how standard Indonesian use in situations where formal Indonesian is needed in the learning process. The research subjects were 117 UKI students who were given questionnaires using Google Form regarding the Indonesian language on campus. The results showed that the use of nonstandard Indonesian often appeared in learning. After analyzing the research results, it was found that: 1) students were able to distinguish between the standard and nonstandard Indonesian word choices; 2) not accustomed to speaking standard Indonesian, so students tend to mix standard and nonstandard Indonesian; 3) The absence of strict regulations and sanctions in terms of the use of standard Indonesian causes students to be less concern about practicing Indonesian as the state language.
