Delhi University will start the online registration process for admissions to around 54,000 seats in undergraduate courses from May 22.

The university is starting the online registration process almost two weeks ahead of its usual schedule for courses in which admission is based on cut-off. The last date to fill the admission form has not been finalized yet.

“Students can start filling the online registration form from May 22. As we are starting the registration earlier, students will have enough time to get their certificates and other documents in place,” said M Pandit, member of DU’s admission committee.

The online registration process for undergraduate courses, in which an entrance test is conducted, will begin from May 31. DU conducts entrance tests for courses such as Bachelor of Management Studies, BA (Hons) Business Economics, Bachelor of Business Administration (financial investment analysis).

“There are around 1600 seats in undergraduate courses in which entrance test is conducted,” said an official.

For postgraduate courses and research courses, the online registration will also start from May 31. “Admission to postgraduate courses, MPhil and PhD will begin from May 31,” said an official.

DU registrar Tarun Das said the registration process for all programmes and categories will be online. “The eligible applicants are informed that the registration process of all the programmes will be completely online including Sports, Extra Curricular Activities (ECA), Kashmiri Migrants, CW (Defence), and PwD categories,” Das said.

Das said the details of registration process and subsequent procedure will be available in a bulletin of information, which will be uploaded online soon on www.du.ac.in.

The university will hold a standing committee meeting to finalise the admission criteria for various courses on May 16. “After Tuesday’s meeting, changes in the criteria for different courses will be approved. Once the changes are approved, we will upload the information on university website,” said officials.

There is still no clarity on whether entrance test for postgraduate and research courses will be conducted online, as planned earlier because there has been resistance from students’ bodies to conduct offline entrance tests.
