The two new scholarships introduced this year are:

Gifted Student Scholarship: This is a merit based admissions process under which the university considers students with certificates from pre- identified exams. Eligible students are directly invited for an in-person interview at the University. Once they are selected they are entitled to a 100 per cent tuition waiver. The exams considered for this scholarship will include:

  • National Talent Search Examination (NTSE) toppers holding ranks up to 1,000

Rural Student Scholarship: This scholarship will support students of exceptional caliber from a rural and underprivileged background. Up to 20 students are entitled to this at the under- graduate level (basis the University’s selection process). The scheme offers a full tuition waiver along with hostel and living expenses extended as a loan to be repaid by students after they graduate.

Undergraduate programs include the following courses: Bachelor of Arts (Research), Bachelor of Science (Research), Bachelor of Management Studies and Bachelor of Technology. Details of admission to all programs for the Academic Year 2017-18, including new programs are available on the University website.


Admissions to Shiv Nadar University are merit-based, with the University not reserving any seats under any specific category.

Similarly, candidates are evaluated on their subject knowledge through the Academic Proficiency Test (APT).


The last date to appear for SNUSAT and APT test is June 7, 2017.
