Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

As the University of Delhi announced the final semester results for the under graduation class of 2011, post the initial cheer, celebration and nostalgia came the apprehensions for post graduation admissions.  The students who’ve graduated from the University of Delhi are looking for admissions in their favorite post graduation colleges.

However, what remains uncertain is the documents required for admissions to various colleges not only in DU, but in other Indian universities, IIMs and other foreign colleges. Not only ascertaining which documents are required for admissions is a problem, but also the procedure of procurement is unknown to many students.

So, in order to ease out the process of admissions and documents procurement, what follows is a list of documents required for post graduate admissions by every college as you walk in to fill their pre-admission forms –

1. Provisional Certificate 

The University of Delhi gives  the official degrees to the graduates in the month of March every year. Hence, the proper degrees of students of class of 2011- 2014 shall be released in the month of March, 2015. (The exact date shall be intimated by the University in mid February itself.)  In place of the official DU degrees, each college issues a provisional certificate to all its students to acknowledge a bonafide association with the college and University. Once available, the certificate can be collected from the college administrative block.

2. Delhi University Semester Mark-sheets

The University of Delhi no longer issues mark sheets to the students, neither semester wise, nor yearly, nor at the end of the course. The students are supposed to take print outs of their score sheets as they check their results online. The printed mark sheet needs to be stamped and attested by the college principals in order to validate it. The mark-sheet without attestation won’t be considered a reliable document.

3. Migration Certificate 

If you are planning to switch over to some university/ college outside the ambit of University of Delhi, you’ll also require the Migration Certificate. The candidates need to fill in forms for issuance of the Migration certificate, form being available at DU’s official website. (Click here  to view the form.)

The form needs to be submitted at the respective North campus ( Academic Branch?II North Campus, University of  Delhi, Delhi?110007)  and  South campus (Academic Branch, South Campus, University of Delhi, New Delhi?110021)  offices.

The documents to be attached along are the attested DU mark-sheet and provisional certificate along with a fees of Rs. 500.

The certificate can be collected from the same place where the form was submitted within ten working days of application.

4. Class Xth Pass Certificate.

The class Xth pass certificate acts as a proof for the Date of Birth, self attested copies of the same are required to be submitted along the admission forms in all colleges.

5. Category Certificate

If you are seeking admission to any college on basis of  belonging to a category other than General such as the SC/ST/OBC,  you are required to furnish the apt certificate to prove your claim. The certificate should be issued in the candidate’s name. Any certificate in parent’s name shall not be considered reliable for admissions.

The list is however not exhaustive, for different colleges might have some other specific requirements, but it definitely includes the most basic and essential documents to be kept handy for admissions. You could also keep other important certificates, Certificate of Merit, ID proofs, passport size photographs, achievement certificates, LORs etc handy, in case you need to furnish them.

We wish you a quick and hassle free admission to the college of your dreams!
