Delhi University received 217,000 applications for undergraduate programs this academic session, which is about 70,000 less than last year. Unlike previous years, when admissions were based on cutoffs, this year, the university is admitting students through Common University Entrance Test (CUET) scores instead of 12th class marks.

Last year, the university saw over 2.87 lakh registrations, while in 2020, 3.53 lakh candidates applied for undergraduate programs in the university.

According to data provided by Delhi University, 2,17,653 candidates have registered for its undergraduate courses till Thursday, the last day of application.

“More than 1.5 lakh of these have identified their college and course preferences,” Dean of Admissions Prof Haneet Gandhi told PTI. On September 12, the university released its admission-cum-allotment policy CSAS.

Admission through the Common Seat Allocation System (CSAS) is being conducted in three phases – submission of CSAS-2022 application form, program selection and filling of preferences, and seat allocation and admission.

Admission is open for 79 UG programs across 67 colleges, departments and centres. The programs consist of a combination of 206 BA courses.

The official said that DU admission registration was closed on Thursday evening.

The CSAS portal also has auto-locked choices indicated by undergraduate candidates at 5pm on Thursday. Gandhi said that more than 1.5 lakh students have chosen their college-course preferences, which is about 67,000 less than the total registration.

Before announcing the first seat allotment list, the university said it will release a ‘simulated list’ on Friday through which candidates will be able to assess their potential for admission to a program in a college.

After the declaration of ‘Simulated List’, candidates will be given two more days to rearrange their choices.

“Students will get a two-day window within which they can fill their preferences. Students who have not registered their preferences can make selections within these two days,” Gandhi said.
