Getting into a high-ranking college is everyone’s dream, but University of Delhi’s (DU) high cut-offs make it difficult for the aspirants to get into their dream college. However, the inter-college migration system offers a second chance to the students to turn their dreams into reality.

Amidst the sky-high cut-offs, limited seats, and a large number of applicants, it becomes difficult for the students to get admission in the college of their choice. The migration process in DU offers a second chance to the students to migrate to their dream college in the second year. It gives a chance to the students to study in one of the renowned colleges. However, according to the University of Delhi, “Migration is not a right; it is only a permissive facility and not an obligatory one. It all depends upon both incoming and outgoing colleges concerned; therefore, the policy of Reservation in Migration for both Inter-College & Inter-University is not applicable.”

  1. Students pursuing B.A. Programme & B.Com., B.A. (Honours), B.Com. (Honours), B.Sc. (Honours) are eligible to migrate to another college in their third semester.
  2. Securing passing marks in all the papers in the first and second semester is a necessary requirement.
  1. Students are not allowed to migrate from a regular college to School of Open Learning (SOL) or the Non-Collegiate Women’s Education Board (NCWEB).
  2. Migration is allowed from one college to another only in the same course.
  3. Only undergraduate students can apply for migration.
  4. Migration is only allowed in the third semester.
  1. The No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Head of both the colleges, that is, the one where the candidate is presently studying, and the other where he/she wants to migrate.
  2. A leaving certificate from the college.
  3. Mark sheets of the examinations passed.

A student who applied for migration last year told DU Beat that the migration process is very hectic and the outcome is unpredictable. He further added, “Most of the times, contacts are needed in order to migrate and there are no specific criteria apart from having passed all the examinations. It is completely up to the colleges concerned. Getting the NOC from both the colleges is a real task and you require contacts for that. Many times, students with 9 CGPA also fail to get into the college of their choice, while students with lesser scores get through it.”
