Delhi University (DU) will allow students enrolled in undergraduate courses to upgrade their choices in a two-day window. The option, however, will not be available to students who have been allotted their first choice of course and college.

Candidates can opt for seat upgrade after university shows vacant seats in first round seat allotment aggregate on Wednesday. The last date for fee payment for UG programs in Delhi University was listed as October 25.

“The vacant seat will be displayed on Wednesday and subsequently, candidates admitted in CSAS Round 1 can choose to upgrade and re-order their higher preferences from Wednesday to Thursday,” news agency PTI quoted a university as saying.

“Choosing the ‘upgrade’ option will mean that the candidate agrees to consider an offer of admission to a program college of their higher choice in the next round.”

“The candidate’s current admission seat will be automatically canceled if new preference is allotted,” the official added.

The upgrade option is available only for program combinations which were higher than the combinations allotted to them in the candidate’s preference list. Program colleges in which the candidates were previously admitted will not be offered in the next round.

“The program college combination which was lower in the order of preference in which the candidate was admitted earlier will never be offered to the candidate in the next round,” the official said.

Once the candidate gets upgraded, they have to take the upgraded seat and complete the admission process. Candidates who want to continue with their allotted seats can submit a freeze request through their dashboard.

Informing about the process, the official said, “After selecting ‘Freeze’, the candidate will not be allowed to select ‘Upgrade’. If a candidate does not opt ​​for upgrade or ‘freeze’, the admission taken by him shall be maintained and he shall not be considered for upgrade.”

For the first time admissions to 79 undergraduate programs and 67 colleges of Delhi University are being conducted through Common University Entrance Test (CUET) scores. Admission was earlier done through merit list based on 12th class score which resulted in sky high cut-off.
