The Guiding Light – DU Admissions




At twelve noon today, laptops would have opened in a rhythmic synchrony; tabs, showing an atypical behaviour, will ditch the preferred facebook and log in to the DU website and forms will be filled with zen-like concentration. For the fresh school pass-outs, today is a big day. It is today that they take a step closer to the much awaited college life and to the future they had been working tirelessly for.

But admission process can be a bit flummoxing and there is exactly where we step in to help you.


Keep the following points in mind to ace your mission admission:

*There is only online registration for DU  colleges. The entire process, including payment of fees, is online.

*The online registration for colleges that do not require any entrance test begins today, 1st June, at 12 noon and will end on 19th June. The first cut off list will be revealed on 27th June, second on 1st July, third on 7th July, fourth on 12th July and fifth on 16th July. Vacant seats, if any, will be notified by colleges on 20th July on the DU website.

*While you may have a single track  focus to land in SRCC or any other college, you HAVE to fill the centralised form available on the DU website. For St Stephen’s, JMC and the three new minority colleges – SGND Khalsa College, SGTB Khalsa College and Shri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce applicants will be required to first fill the centralised registration form and then use their respective registration numbers to apply to these college.

*Applicants are required to get themselves registered at  Upon registration, the applicants will receive an email containing a link to DU’s admission portal, where they have to fill the requisite forms and upload self attested and scanned documents. (Make sure that you adhere to the size constraints of documents)

*There is no restriction on the number of courses that one can apply for.

*While calculating best of four subjects, one language has to be necessarily included.

*If an applicant meets any cut-off list, he/she has to take admission within three days after the release of the cut-off list.

*If an applicant meets, say, the first cut-off list then he/she must take admission during the time provided for the said list. He/she cannot then seek admission under the second list.

*Admission timings are 10 am to 1 pm for day colleges and 4 pm to 7 pm for evening colleges.

*Separate cut offs will be declared for various categories like ST, SC, OBC, Gen, PwD, Kashmiri Migrants and Non Collegiate Women’s Education Board.

The university will conduct open days sessions across North and South Campus to clear any doubt that applicants may encounter.

Here’s wishing all admission-seekers a smooth admission process and a great future!

About Divyansh Pandey

Divyansh Pandey is a living oxymoron. He is impatient yet lethargic, a serial procrastinator yet worries the most about deadlines that hover like dementors. The rare times he is not suppressing a stressful tantrum, he eats, watches football (tries failingly not to become one) and presses random keys on the keyboard in a bid to create his own form of magic :)
