DU Admission Guide 2018 – UG

Delhi University has opened its registration for all undergraduate courses from today, ie 15th May 2018 till 7th June 2018. The registration and application process is only through an online form available at admission.du.ac.in. Here’s a quick guide to help you smoothly sail through the DU admission process:


Students seeking admission to DU undergraduate courses will require to register themselves at DU’s centralised admission portal. After the registration is done, each student will get a unique log-in and password that will allow them to complete the DU admission process.

Except for St. Stephen’s & Jesus & Mary College, DU will have a common eligibility criterion for all its colleges. Both the above-mentioned colleges will announce their individual online admission forms.

The application form will need several documents and information. Keep them handy before you start the process so that you can get done in one sitting – photograph, signature, ID proof, 10th pass certificate and mark sheet, character certificate, transfer and/or migration certificate. If you are applying through a quota, you may need to substantiate that with documents too. All the documents need to be self-attested.

The DU admission form requires patience and precision. If you face any difficulty, read the step-by-step guide published by DU.

Once you’ve completed this process, make sure to keep a copy of the acknowledgement slip and form for future use.

Cut-off & course(s)

While students can choose to opt for multiple courses, every student is only supposed to do so through a single application. All courses, whether entrance or merit-based, can be applied through the same application. However, every course will have its own separate application fee, payable online.

DU is expected to announce as many as 5 cut-offs, along with 2 more to fill up the vacant seats. The first cut-off will be announced on 19th June 2018.

The first round of admission will happen within 3 days of the announcement of the first cut-off. Make sure you complete your application process and submit it before the last date to qualify for the DU admission process.

Once the cut-offs have been announced, choose a college/course where you meet the eligibility criteria and one that is of your interest. Collate all your documents and visit your college for document verification. The college will keep your documents to avoid multiple admissions at that time. Once all the verification formalities are complete, the college will announce admissions on the online portal along with a link for fee payment.

However, if in the second cut-off, you choose to change your course/college, you can withdraw/cancel your admission in the first college following which the college will give back your documents.


If you want to wait for your result, make sure to fill in the rest of the application form to save time later. If you are confident about your expected result, you can also go through last year’s cut-off and get a fair idea of which course and college to select based on your approximation.

Lastly, even if you don’t get your choice of course and/or college in the very first cut-off list, make sure to take admission in the course/college that is next on your priority list. Don’t let go of the opportunity. Admission withdrawals in DU are an easy process.

Best of luck!
