Delhi University’s minority colleges such as St. Stephen’s and Jesus and Mary College are all set to join the varsity’s centralised admission process this academic session. The move comes in response to a meeting held by a 24-member admission committee that recommended that all colleges under DU should participate in the centralised online registration process. These institutions, however, will continue with their own admission policy of selection of students despite having an alignment with centralised admission process.
“The student will have to first register on the DU website and then go to the website of these colleges and fill their form as well,” remarked Nachiketa Singh, a member of the admission committee while talking to a popular national daily.
As per this move, students will first have to fill the centralised UG admission form and then provide the registration number given by DU to proceed with the admission process in these individual colleges. The colleges will, however, continue to have a separate merit criteria under which they are free to issue their own cut-off lists.
Mata Sundari College for Women, Sri Guru Nanak Dev (SGND) Khalsa College and Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce -the three colleges run by the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) which were granted minority status by the Delhi High Court last year, have also approached the varsity authorities to permit them to have independent admission process from the upcoming session.
