New Delhi: With the launch of the Common Seating Allocation System (CSAS) portal, the University of Delhi on Monday launched the admission process for undergraduate (UG) courses. The portal will be open until October 3, giving students three weeks to apply for undergraduate courses.
Apart from Delhi University, many central universities and other universities, which are part of the Common University Entrance Test (CUET), have also started the admission process.
According to Prof. Yogesh Singh, Vice Chancellor of Delhi University, the new session of the university can start on November 1. The Vice Chancellor said the Common Seating System portal was launched for undergraduate courses from Monday. He said it was the first time undergraduate admissions at Delhi University was done on the basis of CUET.
The result of the Common University Entrance Test (CUET-UG) must be declared no later than September 15. After the release of the tentative result date of CUET, Delhi University on Monday shared the DU admission information.
There are about 80 departments under the university where postgraduate degrees, doctorates, certificate courses, degree courses are conducted. Similarly, the University of Delhi has about 79 colleges in which undergraduate and postgraduate studies are carried out. Every year, more than 70,000 students are admitted to these colleges and departments in science, business and humanities subjects at the degree level.
The University of Delhi says that this year, all DU-affiliated colleges will have three-phase admission through CSAS. For this reason, the new undergraduate course session at Delhi University is expected to start from November 1st.
Even after the CUET-UG exam results are reported around September 15 and the admissions process begins, it can take three to four weeks to complete undergraduate admissions. The main reason behind this is that for undergraduate admissions, a first, second, third and sometimes more than three cut lists are usually issued. This admission process therefore takes some time.
