Andalas University seeks to build a good and strong student character to produce graduates with global competitiveness and entrepreneurship spirit. The University formulates Andalasian Characters that comprise four elements: spirituality, knowledge, charity, and social. Spirituality is the core element of education that will produce a religious person. It is expected the four elements will color the students' attitude, ways of thinking, and actions in implementing “the three pillars of higher education” (Tri Dharma Perguruan Tinggi): education, research, and community services.

It is expected that the four elements of the character educate students with patience, empathy, honesty, fairness, responsibility, and sincerity, which is abbreviated SEJATI (Sabar, Empati, Jujur, Adil, Tanggungjawab, and Ikhlas). "Patience' means that students endure trials, not irritable or quickly despaired, steadfast, unhurried, and calm.
