With the hope to minimize the utilization of paper, the online registration for DU’s undergraduate programs will be commenced from 28th May this year. The online registration process for Undergraduate program at Delhi University will be started earlier this year than the offline admission, which is expected to start from June 5 this year. Both, offline and online processes for registration will end on June 15 2015. More than 60, 000 seats in 61 DU affiliated colleges are available for grabs.
Delhi University is all set to mandate the enrollment of all the students meeting their cut-off criteria and the officials confirmed that there will be no first come, first served policy for undergraduate admission in the academic session 2015-16.
J.M Khurrana, Dean of Student Welfare stated that DU is looking forward to record more students for the upcoming academic session through its innovative online registration process and this will further discourage the offline registration. This decision has been taken after much deliberation, the officials confirmed.
While announcing the eligibility criteria on 15th May 2015, J.M. Khurana said, “A student applying in five different colleges will have the same criteria for admission in all of them. Colleges will not be allowed to impose any extra eligibility criteria for students. Rules will be same for all and as set by the university.”
In a bid to respite the most aspiring students, Delhi University has recently announced to do away with additional eligibility criteria which are being imposed by individual college; instead a uniform system has been formulated by the university which is said applicable for admission to all the affiliated colleges.
In the academic session 2015-16, if any student desires to enroll for an Honors program in the subject which he/she has not studied in Class XII, then there will be a deduction of 2.5%, unlike previous years where most of the colleges have their own set of criteria for deducting marks, the official confirmed.
Another most crucial alteration made is to allow the consideration of vocational programs while evaluating the aggregate of best four subjects, but with a deduction of 2.5%.
Deputy Dean of Student Welfare, Gurpreet Singh Tuteja said, “Students can include vocational courses (subjects in which DU does not offer Honors courses) in their best of four but there will be a deduction of 2.5 per cent from the aggregate marks. Earlier every college had its own criteria for considering vocational subjects but now it will be uniform,”
So, it is authenticated that students may include a vocational program in their best four subjects, in which DU doesn’t offer any Honors courses, but there will be a deduction of 2.5% from the aggregate marks.
Moreover, students who are looking forward to change their stream and pursue a BA or B.Com Degree would also have to experience the deduction of 5% from their aggregate of best four subjects.
For the academic session 2015-16, Mathematics is made compulsory for the students enrolling for B.Com Honors and Mathematics Honors. But, according to the DU officials, students are only required to have passed in Mathematics. Many amendments are also made in Computer Science as Informative Practices will be treated as an academic subject for admissions in academic session 2015-16.
Fees set for both offline and online registration is Rs. 100/- INR for OBC and General Category students, while R. 50/- INR for SC/ST/PWD students. No printed brochures would be distributed to students, but students can get the eight page handout comprising all the rules of registration and admissions for undergraduate program 2015-16.
Delhi University has also announced to withdraw the Choice Based Credit System or CBCS from the upcoming academic session and this system will not be applicable for admission process any longer till further notice from University Grants Commission or UGC.
-Offline forms will be accepted at the registration centers from 5th of June till 15th of June 2015 between 9 am to 3 pm on all working days.
