Students checks the cut-off list at St Stephen's college in New Delhi.

Giving five days in a week to its students to pursue their ambitions, the University of Delhi’s Non-Collegiate Women’s Education Board (NCWEB) conducts classes over the weekend for women students residing in the Capital. With more than 12,000 students on its rolls, the board helps several students who cannot join regular college for various reasons to pursue undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.

Undergraduate classes are held at Bharati College, Janki Devi Memorial College, Jesus and Mary College, Kalindi College, Lakshmi Bai College, Mata Sundri College, Maitreyi College, PGDAV College, Shyama Prasad Mukherjee College, Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce, Hansraj College, Maharaja Agrasen College and Siddharth International School.

Postgraduate classes at present are held at the Tutorial Building, Arts Faculty, University of Delhi, north campus.

Admission is done on the basis of merit by declaring cut-offs. NCWEB students are not allowed to pursue any other full-time course. Teaching is classroom-based and no written material is given.

Students are expected to attend classes regularly as the minimum 66% attendance has been made mandatory to appear for university examinations, which are held along with the students of regular colleges.

The board provides library facility to all undergraduate students in the respective teaching centres and a postgraduate lbrary is located in the Arts Faculty building north campus.

It gives financial aid and book loan facility for the academic year to the needy and deserving students.

Teachers of the university and affiliated colleges are deputed as guest faculty to teach the NCWEB students. The board began functioning in September 1944 with three students.

NCWEB offers BA (prog) and BCom courses at the undergraduate level. The fee for the two programmes is Rs. 3,365 and Rs. 3,465, respectively.

The classes will begin from August 3, 2013, for Saturday centres and from August 4, 2013, for Sunday centres.
