The day has arrived. Delhi University has announced that the process to take applications will start today for admissions to upcoming academic session 2016-17 into under-graduate courses. The process for post graduate courses concluded just yesterday for which over 1.3 lakh aspirants registered.
DU admission were to start off from 25 May as per earlier schedule notified by the University. However, after two delays, the University official said that online registrations will begin at 12 noon today on 1st June 2016.
Few severe changes have been made to the process of admissions this year as DU decided to take the registration process completely online, putting an end to traditional mode of forms submission offline, following the UGC’s instructions. This year, students who aspire to study in DU, have the option to submit their applications only online through www.du.ac.in within the prescribed schedule. Read everything here to know before going ahead to apply. Furthermore, the number of cutoffs to be released has been reduced to 5, below from nearly double the cutoffs been released in previous years.
Here are few of the important dates you need to know.
Online registrations start date- 1st June 2016
Last date to register- 19th June 2016
First cut-off list releasing on- 27th June 2016.
That means, starting at 12 pm today, students will be able to read the official notification and go ahead to fill the form after checking necessary eligibility criteria.
More than 3 lakh students are expected to submit the forms online for around 60,000 available seats in colleges registered under Delhi University. It’d be interesting to see how the cut off goes this year considering 2015 witnessed highs and lows all at the same time.
The application fees has been set at Rs 100 for general category students and Rs 50 for reserved category applicants. To see the complete details on fees and eligibility, students would be required to read the official notification which will be uploaded at 12pm today.
The complete process from registration to fee submission is being taken online. DU has introduced centralized OMR forms which candidates will need to fill out.
