The University of Delhi (DU) on October 1 released the first cut-off list for admissions to undergraduate (UG) courses offered by the university. Aspirants can check the course-wise cut-offs for different colleges at

Based on the cut-off, students will now have to select courses and colleges they are eligible for at and fill options.  Admissions against the first cut-off list will begin on October 4, 10 am. Colleges have been asked to complete approvals for admission against the first cut off by October 7.

Professor Rajeev Gupta, Chairman of the university’s Admissions Committee, advised students against applying within the first hour of commencement of the admission process and the last few hours when the admission process is going to end since that is the time when there is maximum traffic on the portal.

“We are giving an adequate amount of time to students to apply and pay the fees. So they should be careful and not be in a hurry. Students should review the situation before cancelling the admission. The seats are limited and cut-offs are quite high so if they have got admission in a college, they should not cancel it,” he said.

Here is a list of documents that students need to secure their admission: 

  • Class 10 mark sheet
  • Class 10 Board examination certificate
  • Class 12 mark sheet
  • Class 12 provisional certificate/original certificate
  • Conduct certificate
  • Category (SC/ST/PWD/CW/KM) certificate
  • OBC (non-creamy layer) certificate
  • Migration certificate
  • Transfer certificate
  • Two passport size self-attested photographs

Students must submit their class 10 marksheet indicating date of birth and parents’ names (there should be no mismatch in the names of students who are applying under the reserved categories between the class 10 certificate and the corresponding reservation certificates). Candidates seeking admission through ECA/Sports categories have to upload self-attested copies of the requisite certificates/produce the relevant certificates.

Those who are applying under the EWS category must submit the EWS certificate (Appendix IV) from the competent authority certifying the candidate can claim reservation under this category. Income certificate for the financial year 2020-21, dated on or after March 31, 2021.

According to the guidelines, the candidate is allowed to choose only one programme in a college during a particular cutoff, and selecting multiple programmes and colleges in a particular cutoff is not permitted.

On receiving the application, the colleges verify it along with the uploaded documents to approve or decline the candidature. The colleges verify the documents uploaded by the candidate for eligibility and meeting the required cut-off.

Verification of documents is done at various stages by colleges — programme or teacher in-charge of the respective colleges will verify the minimum qualifications and cut-off requirement. Then the admission convenor rechecks and approves or rejects the candidature and finally, the principal approves or rejects the candidature.

A candidate who ‘applied’ in any cut-off and for whom the admission was ‘Approved by Principal’ in a particular programme+college but did not pay the fees and wish to seek admission in any subsequent cut-off will have to “cancel” his/her previously approved application and re-apply for a programme + college combination and repeat the process. A non-refundable cancellation fee of Rs 1,000 will be levied,” state the guidelines. — With PTI inputs.
