Application policy

The application forms are centralized only. No college can bring out their own application forms.

The university is promoting online applications this year. The cost of the online form is R50. The over-the-counter form will be available for Rs. 100.

It is an OMR form which will be read by a computer.

The students have to fill only one form for as many courses as they like. However, for courses that have an entrance test, separate forms will have to be filled.

This year, the form will not have any college preferences or options. A student only has to fill the course preference and their application will reach all those colleges where the course is offered. A student can fill all 34 non–entrance course options in a single OMR form.

A student cannot attach any documents with the application form. A person with the student’s complete information can also fill the form on behalf of the student.

Students need to be present at the time of admission. Guardians or parents also need to be present to sign the undertaking regarding anti-ragging regulations.

Admission essentials

When you step out
Carry a bottle of water and a pack of biscuits to beat the heat outside. Wear comfortable clothes and footwear

If you belong to one of the reserved categories (SC/ST/PH), carry photocopies of the relevant certificate as well as the original

Make sure that the caste certificate is in your name. Certificates in the name of your parents will not be accepted

A small envelope with at least 10 copies of your latest passport size photograph

Carry at least 3 well sharpened HB pencils for filling OMR forms

Carry a black ink pen along with a sachet of gem clips, a stapler, a box of staple pins and an eraser

Carry a wallet with at least R500 with you as contingency since the OMR form costs R100. Some change will come in handy for travel on the university campus

Do not buy multiple centralised OMR forms. You can apply to the college and course of your choice using only one form

Since there are several places to eat, carrying food is not a necessity
