IP varsity starts online admission

In a bid to expand its reach, Delhi-based Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIPU) has for the first time started online admission process for some 29,000 seats for its 150 academic courses.  

This public, professional university with 13 school of studies and three specialised centres, said no to offline mode of application for the new academic session. “We are expecting an increase in the number of applicants with the process going online, from two lakh last year to 2.25 lakh this year,” said Vice Chancellor Anup Singh Beniwal, adding that students from outside Delhi will be encouraged to apply.  

He said that the university spent Rs 1 crore on printing application forms last year. The application fee for Common Entrance Test (CET) has been reduced from Rs 1,100 to Rs 750.In the same form applicants can select and fill as many courses as they want, but only if all the selected courses belong to the same exam category. And in case an applicant wants to fill multiple courses across different categories, she or he will have to register separately for both courses. 

Also for the first time, the university has decided to hold CETs for all regular courses, barring BArch and diploma courses. The university has put up information on the CET application forms and has uploaded it on the university’s website, with detailed instructions on how to navigate through the application process.  

The eligibility criterion for Master’s in Criminology has been changed. Students will no longer require an LLB or Sociology degree, and graduates from all disciplines can apply. The last date to submit application for most courses is April 10. For postgraduate medical courses the university will accept applications till March 20 and for BArch course the last date for online submission is July 3.
