The registration process for the undergrad courses will initiate from August 2 up to August 31. Potential candidates who want to opt for various courses can apply online through the usual DU admission site du.ac.in.   

Let’s cover the basics, the admission process will be based on merit and the best of four marks obtained by students in class 12, which will be used as the basis for the cut-off list. This year all the colleges under DU (https://admission.uod.ac.in/?UG-Admission#), will have only one admission form, which is the “Registration-cum-Application" form.

Although there would be a single application form for UG admission, but if the applicant wishes to register for more than one course they would have to pay separate registration fee.

Even though a bulk of DU admission courses are merit-based however, for some courses, the varsity will conduct the Delhi University Entrance Test (DUET) 2021 that will be conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA). For Bachelor in Physiotherapy, Bachelor in Occupational Therapy, Bachelor of Prosthetics and Orthotics, and Masters of Physiotherapy, the admissions will be through DUET 2021. The exam will be held online. The dates of the entrance exams are yet to be updated on the website.

The first cut-off list is expected by the first week of September and Delhi University anticipated to start the new academic session from October 1, but in case the process takes time, the administration will start it latest by October 18, 2021.
