ECA 2019


Here is a guide for those applying through the Extra Curricular Activities (ECA) Quota, the list of ECA’s offered by the Varsity, and the admission process.

The colleges across the University provide admission through the ECA Quota for admissions in different courses.

The applicants seeking admission under ECA category will have to register online on the Delhi University (DU) Admissions Portal. There will be an additional registration fee of INR 100 to apply under the ECA category. Applicants may register for a maximum of three ECA categories and have to upload only one best certificate they have earned in that field. The students don’t get more than 15% advantage academically, so they should choose the course accordingly. The ECA trials are held at two levels, and are conducted by the ECA Admissions Committee appointed by the University, whose decision remains final.
