New Delhi: Admissions for various Undergraduate (UG) Courses in the prestigious Delhi University will now happen via Common University Entrance Test (CUET) scores.
With the CUET rolling out from this academic session, the admissions will happen via a central portal, based on the rules stated in the Common Seat Allocation System (CSAS).
Admissions through CSAS will take place in 3 phases
In the first phase, the candidates will have to apply by filling CSAS-2022 application form available on the portal. A one-time (non-refundable) payment is required at this stage. Students applying under the Sports category or
Extracurricular Activities will have to shell out more than normal ones.
— In the second phase, the applicants will have to pick program & college choice on the centralized CSAS portal. After the declaration of CUET scores, the candidates can check their eligibility under their preferred programmes and also colleges. They will need to fill in their preferences carefully as this will form the basis for seat allotment in the next phase.
— In the third phase, the allotment of seats will start. The candidates will be required to follow up on the admission and seat allotment.
Seat allocation to students
The seats are allotted to students based on their CUET scores. Once allocation has been done, students will have a certain time frame to accept it.
After the allocation of seat, the applicant’s eligibility and documents will be verified. The colleges will either approve or reject the seat allotted to a candidate.
Provision for mid-entry of candidates & Admission withdrawal
The Delhi University has also made available options of mid-entry in the programmes. Those who didn’t apply on the common admission portal can avail this option to get admission by paying a mid-entry fee of Rs 1,000. However, mid-entry candidates will be considered for admission only when the seats are available. They won’t have option to question admission granted to those who had applied on the common portal.
Applicants will also have the option of withdrawing admission by paying a fee of Rs 1,000. Once a candidate has cancelled his/her admission, they won’t have the permission to participated in any further rounds of seat allotment.
Merit based seat allotment
Merit will be the chief criteria for getting admission in DU colleges. The General category will have all the candidates in order of merit and will also include SC/ST/OBC/EWS candidates.
The reserved category of applicants will be considered but they will have to show valid documents at the time of application to CSAS 2022. However, if any admission is denied due to lack of sufficient documents, he/she will have a chance to furnish it in the subsequent rounds.
