The School of Open Learning, Delhi University has recently opened admissions for undergraduates for session 2016. Read below to find out more about the process and the changing trend of increase in SOL Admissions.
The School of Open Learning opened its undergraduate admissions, 2016 from 15th July, 2016. An array of documents have to be uploaded in case of online registration.
SOL provides the following courses for under graduation:-
B.A. (Hons.) English

The admissions close on 30th August, 2016.
The School of Open Learning is a pioneer institution in the field of distance learning. Lately, the institution has seen a rise in the number of applicants year after year. As per admission data, 49,000 students had applied online to SOL by 21st July, 2016 said a report in Times of India.
The increase in the number of applicants can be traced to a number of reasons. The first and foremost reason is how applicants wish to pursue other courses like C.A and/or prepare for IAS papers. Getting enrolled in SOL gives them more time prepare for these exams. SOL has also been attracting a lot of students with high percentages. This year four students with a perfect percentage of 100 have enrolled themselves to SOL.
The high rate of influx is also a reflection of soaring cutoffs in DU. With many students not being able to make it into DU; SOL is a good option for students who do not wish to compromise on their education or haven’t been able to make it to a college of their choice even with a good percentage. Many students in SOL have percentages ranging between 80%-95%.
Another important aspect is the financial aspect. The annual fee for undergraduate courses approximately Rs. 3,500, relatively cheaper in comparison to DU colleges who’s annual fees ranges from Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 18,000.
