To all the DU aspirants, online admissions are a-go.
After much delay in green-signalling the UG application procedure for the year 2019, Delhi University admissions are to commence today at 8 PM, according to DU's press release.
The registration for postgraduate, MPhil, and PhD courses will commence on June 3.
The procedure will be completely online for all the courses and for all the categories of students.
Delhi University is also reportedly considering providing full scholarships to students whose parents are deceased/unemployed. They might also provide a half fee waiver to those students whose earning member is deceased.
University administration updated that there will be forensic verification of the documents, to avoid fraudulent admissions. Any forgery will be met with a penalty.
'Open Days' will be held on May 31, June 3, and June 8, at the North Campus Conference Centre, to help the students understand the admission procedure.
The same will be held on June 4, 6, 7, and 10 at off-campus colleges - Kamala Nehru College, Rajdhani College, Ram Lal Anand College, Zakir Hussain College, and Maharaja Agrasen College.
For students whose marks are in GPA format, DU considers the following formula to convert it into percentage format.
Final Percentage of Marks (%) = CGPA based on all six semesters × 9.5.
The registration form costs Rs 200 for the General/Unreserved category and Rs 150 for SC/ST categories.
One student can only apply once. But don't worry, in case you make a mistake, DU will open the portal for correction (date for which will be notified soon) and you can get an error corrected for Rs 100 each.
