For many of the students out there who didn’t get through the college of their choice during their admissions in Delhi University, they still have a chance to be there under the migration norms of University of Delhi. According to this rule, students from one college are allowed to change their college in their second academic year. For inter college migration, the rules are-
- A student can migrate from one college of Delhi University to another in his/her third semester of B.A, B.Com., B.Sc., B.A.(H), B.Com(H) and B.Sc(H) courses considering the availability of seats and consent of principals of both the colleges.
- The eligibility criterion for the candidates requires them to have passed in both 1st and 2nd semester exams of the degree course under semester mode.
- The process to apply for migration includes contacting the office of the principal of the concerned college where he/she wants to migrate to obtain the no objection certificate first.
- The last date to apply for migration is 31st August, although the tentative dates for actual migration are issued by the University of Delhi.
- The documents required for migration are, (a) A No Objection Certificate from the principal/head of the College where he/she wants to migrate as well as where he/she is currently studying, (b) A leaving certificate from the principal/head of the concerned college and (c) The mark sheets of the examination already passed.
There are certain terms and conditions that are followed in the process of migration, which are-
- Candidates are not allowed from regular college to School of Open Learning (SOL) or Non-Collegiate Women’s Education Board (NCWEB) as migration is allowed in semester mode and the SOL and NCWEB are in annual mode.

P.C Jain, principal of Sri Ram College of Commerce said, “For a student to migrate from one college to another, he/she will need to have a written permit that the principals of both the colleges agree on the matter.” Anjali Johri a second year student of B. Tech in Computer Science in Shyama Prasad Mukherjee College states, “They are not allowing migration in our college. It is an opportunity for students to go some other college of his/her choice which we are not able to get.”
