Admissions and Courses (2023)

Admission Policy

Admission of students into the Autonomous Degree Courses will be on the basis of the aggregate marks in the qualifying examination or its equivalent, for both the Undergraduate (UG) and the Postgraduate (PG) courses, unless specified otherwise.

For the Bachelor in Management Studies (BMS) & Bachelor in Mass Media (BMM) Courses, unlike other courses, the students come from all 3 faculties (Arts, Science & Commerce) where the marking systems are very different. Hence, an Entrance Test for these courses will be conducted for admission purposes. Admission for B.M.S.& B.M.M. is based on:

  • 60 % weightage to Entrance Test & 40 % weightage to Class XII aggregate marks.
  • A candidate can apply in only one category.

Admissions to B.Sc. (I.T.) will be based on the marks scored in Mathematics at the Class XII Board Exam. Hence, there is no Entrance Test for B.Sc. (I.T.) admissions.

For M.A. in Ancient Indian Culture and Archaeology, an Entrance Test is held for students from faculties other than Arts and for students from other Universities.

All applications for admissions to any UG or PG degree course should be submitted by the date notified by the College. Late applications may not be accepted.

Admissions will be considered to be completed only when the full fees for the academic year are paid (against an official receipt) and the name of the applicant appears on the relevant rolls. Only the Principal can condone payment in full or allow payment in part.

All UG and PG admissions are valid only for one year and are therefore to be renewed for each subsequent year of study.

A student will not be re-admitted to the College if he / she has:

      • Had three unsuccessful attempts at the same examination.
      • Been debarred twice within the first four semesters.
      • Serious complaints of indiscipline against him / her in that year.
