Delhi University wrapped up its Open Days session to a full house on Tuesday with over 300 parents and teachers at each session, seeking clarity regarding the admission procedure.

However, students and parents can still get their queries answered via helpline numbers or they could reach out to students volunteers and officials at the help desk.

“Parents or students with queries can henceforth approach the help desk at the Dean Students’ Welfare Office in Room No. 5 of the Delhi University Conference Centre, or call the helpline number 27006900,” said Ritwik, a volunteer at the Open Day helpdesk.

Deputy dean of students welfare Gurpreet Singh Tuteja replied to the queries. Few of the questions asked were:

1. What is the criterion for hostel admissions?

A. Hostel facilities are allotted to students of the concerned college based on their performance in Class 12. Students from Delhi-NCR cannot opt for hostel.

2. If I am applying through Sports/ECA but I make it to the first cutoff, can I reserve a seat in the general category?

A. Yes, an ECA/Sports applicant is eligible for a seat under the general quota as well.

3. My results have been declared but I haven’t received a hardcopy of the marksheet yet, how do I upload the same?

A. A self-attested copy of the marksheet downloaded from the respective board’s website should be uploaded.

4. Do I need to pay the fee twice if I transfer my admission to a different college in a different cutoff list?

A. The fee does not have to be paid twice. Since the process of fee payment is done online, once admission in the first college is cancelled, the cancellation slip has to be submitted in the second college. After adjustment of fees already paid, the student will be required to pay the remaining amount due as prescribed for the new college. In case the student paid more in the previous college than the amount due for the second college, the excess amount will be refunded to the applicant’s account as per university rules after admissions close.
