Delhi University began the admission process for the academic session of 2024-25 for undergraduate courses. The academic session of this year is likely to commence in August 2024. While there are no major changes in the admission policy this year, the varsity, in a first, has introduced reservations for single girl child in all programmes as part of the supernumerary seats, DU registrar Vikas Gupta said, reported PTI.

One seat in each course reserved for a single girl child

The officials of Delhi University announced on Tuesday that they are introducing the single girl child quota across various programmes under its supernumerary category. Under this quota, one seat in each course in all colleges will be granted to a single girl child based on merit. This quota refers to those that are created over and above the seats already approved for a college.

Last year, DU introduced a supernumerary category to provide admissions to orphan students; a male and a female in each programme of each college.

71,000 seats on offer

The varsity has launched the Common Seat Allocation System (CSAS) for admission in undergraduate programmes into 69 colleges and various departments, with 71,000 seats on offer. As per the information provided by the officials, Within three hours of the launch, the CSAS website received 5,911 applications, reported PTI.

While submitting registrations, the candidates will have to provide their details, academic scores in Class 12, and the CUET (UG) application number, including other details like the name of parents, social category, caste, and gender. 

Second phase to be intiated after CUET results

The second phase will start with the announcement of the CUET (UG) results, after which students will have to complete their preference-filling. Candidates are advised to select as many programme and college combinations as possible to maximize their chances of seat upgradation. After the allocation round, candidates will have to accept the seat allocated and the college concerned will check the eligibility and validity of the uploaded documents. Once it is confirmed, the candidate will be able to pay the fees and complete the admission process. DU will provide details of vacant seats post each round. A mid-entry phase will also be available for late applicants. DU will admit 20 to 30 per cent extra students in various categories to maximize seat occupancy, with some adjustments based on the previous year's withdrawal rates.
