About 70,000 places are available for enrollment in a four-year undergraduate program at 67 faculties. There are 79 undergraduate courses and 206 BA program combinations. By 6 p.m. on Monday, 11,509 students had registered on the portal.
Address at a press conference, DU vice chancellor Yogesh Singh said, “As this is the first time that the admission is based on CUET performance, we have developed a very flexible system. We hope that the new session can start by November 1.”
Since the admission process has been changed from the earlier one based on Class XII marks to results obtained in CUET, the process is different for a student to become part of the Common Seat Allocation System (CSAS) of DU. The CUET application number must be submitted at the time of registration. For the sports and ECA category, candidates must upload five certificates covering the period from April 1, 2017 to June 30 this year.
The application fee is Rs 250 for general students, OBS and EWS students and Rs 100 for SC/ST and PWD. Only after paying the membership fee will candidates become part of CSAS.
“We ask students to choose as many courses and colleges as possible,” said Haneet Gandhi, dean of admissions. “They can actually choose anything that’s available. However, they will have to confirm their preferences by the last date, otherwise the priority order upon enrollment will be automatically locked and will form the basis for the allocation of courses and faculties.’
Students will have to study subjects that they will decide on in XII. For example, for admission to BA Psychology, candidates must include one language and any two academic subjects studied in XII. class and also applied to CUET. The fourth subject can be any of the list of study or non-study subjects. Non-academic subjects are vocational.
After the completion of this phase of admission to courses and colleges, the second phase begins after the declaration of CUET results. Then the seat allotment process for various courses will start.
