The admission process is likely to be closed by August 16, 2016.

Why online?

The DU officials said that the decision to go completely online for DU 2016 admissions has been taken by the University as per UGC guidelines and government’s initiative of ‘Digital India’ programme. Dr. J.M. Khurana, Dean, Students Welfare at the Delhi University said, “The University of Delhi admission process for the year 2016 goes online for the very first time. This year, the University is also facilitating aspirants. They will not have to step out of their houses for applying to different colleges. The online process has been designed by an in-house team of five DU students under the guidance of CIC Faculty Prof Sanjeev Singh.”
