College applications


On July 29, DU released its simulated rank list for admissions to undergraduate programs. Candidates who registered for DU UG 2023 can access this list by logging in to the admissions website.

The university has released the rank list for candidates to assess the likelihood of admission to their preferred college/course. These tentative ranks have been allocated according to Common University Entrance Test (CUET) scores and chosen preferences.

The candidates have been given time till 11.59 pm, Sunday, to alter these preferences before the first seat allocation list is released. This can be done on the Common Seat Allocation System (CSAS) portal.

It must be noted that the simulated ranks are tentative ranks based on the scores and preferences submitted by candidates. These ranks should not be construed as a warranty, express or implied, or creation of a legitimate expectation or as final ranks for allocations of a program of study or college whatsoever”. – Haneet Gandhi, dean of admissions, DU

Final ranks are prone to change as students may add, change or delete college or program preferences till Sunday. The last saved preference will be treated as final.

The next phase of the admission process will begin on August 1, with seat allocation lists being released. Students will be able to accept their seats by August 4 and the online fee payment for the first round will be open till August 6. Inaction will be regarded as non-acceptance of the allocated seat.

Since the simulated ranks are not final and may change owing to the alteration of college-course preferences, students are confused regarding the next course of action. Some have opted to reorder preferences whereas others have decided to wait for the first allocation round.

There was a significant increase in the number of applications for admission to DU this year. The 12.7% rise is credited to the high number of candidates that appeared for the CUET. The university plans to offer 71,000 undergraduate seats across all its colleges.
