Bringing changes into the undergraduate course norms this year, the Delhi University (DU) has decided to make the total admission process centralized and entirely down. The payment of fees for registration process will also be made online. This year, there will be no lines before the Delhi University colleges to take up admission forms and for paying fees. The online admission procedure will begin from 1 June 2016 through the official website of DU www.du.ac.in . The admission procedure will begin from noon onwards.
The registrations for the various courses under DU will continue till 19 June 2016. The first cut off list for the various courses will be made public on 27 June 2016. This year, the university has decided to take down the number of cut off lists to five, making the admission procedure faster.
According to the Dean of Students’ Welfare J M Khurana, “As instructed by UGC, we have decided to make the entire process online. Till last year, there was an option for filling forms, offline and students had to complete the formalities manually. From this year, all of it will be done online.” After registering in the Delhi University website the candidates will get an email with a link to the admission portal. In the portal they will have to fill up their forms and upload their self-attested and scanned copies of documents. The students would have to log on through their registered account when the cut-off marks are announced, to know whether they have made it to the list of selected candidates.
According to Khurana, “The candidates will then be required to report to the college with the application form and original documents, which the admission committee of the respective college will verify and deposit the originals. An acknowledgement will be given to the student following which the student will be required to pay the fee online and key in the acknowledgement number.”
After publication of each of the cut off lists, the students will get the time of three days to enroll themselves. Regarding the cut-off lists, Khurana further said, “The merit lists for the remaining seats after admissions conclude for the fifth cut-off, will be announced by respective colleges.” The registration details will be made available to each of the colleges and they will be informed about the status of the candidates as soon as they take up a seat or withdraw from one.
The specially designed centralized OMR forms will be available at the official website of DU and to complete the registration process, the students will have to pay the fees. Khurana further added about withdrawal of seats saying, “In case of withdrawal, the students will have to approach the college which will then report the cancellation on the university’s portal, return the original documents to the student and then only he or she will be able to take admission in another college.”
