The Delhi University admission process goes online this year and students have to keep in mind several changes.

Aspirants can check the cut-offs from individual college websites or from the university websitewhich will provide a consolidated list of the cut-offs for 61 colleges and 57 courses.

Once a student has qualified as per the cut-offs, they need to log in to the DU undergraduate portal and select the course and college in which they have qualified.

Once the selection is made, admission slips with the masthead of the respective college is generated. Students need to get a print out of the slip and visit the college with original documents.

Cutoff is the calculation of the best-of-four-subject marks (the four subjects in which a student has performed the best. For humanities courses, including one language in the best-of-four is necessary and the other three subjects have to be academic subjects, not vocational.

Only for BA and Bcom programmes, students can include one vocational subject.

College authorities will then verify the document and log into the portal and approve admissions. Original certificates will be kept by the colleges.

Once a college has approved the admission, students need not stand in queue to pay the fees. They can log in to the UG portal and make the payment.

After the declaration of the first cut-off students will be given three days and can take admission between June 30 and July 2.
