The colleges under the university have all chalked out plans regarding orientation and made schedules and timetables for the new entrants. This year, all the three under-graduate classes of the university will follow different course structures. The first year would study as per the CBCS, the second year would undergo the normal semester system taken up by the university while the third year would undergo the Four Year Undergraduate Programme (FYUP), which has become obsolete now.
