Drastic increase in the number of Applications

In 2013 the total registrations for admissions were 256024, which compared to this year’s number of over 2 lakh within four days for admission in the prestigious Central University of the national capital, is a major change and a trend in itself.


The university officials largely attribute the high registration numbers to new admission related initiatives like simple process, availability of online admissions, new technology applied for admissions and the charm of 4 year Undergraduate programme format.

As Malay Neerav said, “Student Empowerment Committee conducted a survey among 9000 students in over 40 colleges. We found that FYUP has gained significance among the students.” He added that the newly launched DU android application is also helping the registration numbers as it is bringing convenience to the aspirants.

Under the new admission process, students can apply in as many courses as they like from amongst over 54 courses available for admissions. Underlining the importance of selecting multiple courses, Malay Neerav, said, “It is important that students select different courses as when the cutoff lists are declared the students have more variety of colleges and courses to apply in. It is an advantage to them for sure.”


The Delhi University will be announcing its first cutoff list on June 24, 2014, with a three day window for students to apply and get admission into the college they are eligible in. The university is also likely to release 10 cut-off lists until July 21, 2014, depending on the admission and seats availability.


The University has also strictly guided each college to refund students fees and release the documents within 24 hours if a student wants to withdraw his/her admission from a particular college.
