Delhi University to launch CSAS portal for UG, PG admissions tomorrow
Delhi University is set to launch the Common Seat Allocation System Portal (CSAS) for both undergraduate and postgraduate courses on June 14. Unlike last year when a single portal was introduced for both categories, this time the university will have separate portals. It's worth noting that Delhi University will not be releasing a cut-off list, just as they did last year. Therefore, students must ensure they complete and update their CSAS applications diligently.
Additionally, Delhi University has revised the norms for undergraduate admissions under the extracurricular activities (ECA) and sports quotas. According to the new rules, colleges can now fill 20 percent of their total supernumerary seats through these quotas. This decision was approved by DU's executive council last week, as reported by PTI.
Regarding the CSAS 2023, personal details such as the applicant's name, photograph, and signature, submitted during the CUET UG and PG applications, will be automatically integrated into the portal. Once a seat is allotted in a particular round, candidates must accept or float the seat before the specified last date and time for that round.
Students aiming to secure admission to St. Stephen's College must adhere to the college's specific admission policy. Last year, students faced difficulties due to the divergent admission policies between Delhi University and St. Stephen's College. Therefore, it is crucial for students to familiarize themselves with the new admission policy and seek guidance from the college's administrative personnel in case of any confusion.
In the CSAS portal of Delhi University, an option for St. Stephen's College will be provided since it falls under the purview of DU but follows a different admission process. However, applicants have raised concerns about this option but have not yet received a satisfactory response from Delhi University. The matter was discussed in a recent meeting of DU's executive council, but the decision has not been made public as of now.
Furthermore, Delhi University will soon conduct PhD admissions for the university through the Central University Entrance Test (CUET). The Executive Council of Delhi University passed a resolution on June 9 to implement CUET in PhD admissions, replacing the previous written test and interview format. This marks the first time Delhi University will schedule an entrance exam for PhD admissions.
Moreover, the executive council has approved the seat matrix and eligibility conditions for the Medical Science Course Admissions Committee, allowing candidates to enroll in undergraduate MBBS/BDS courses for the 2023-24 session. Additionally, the MSc course in the Respiratory Therapy program will also be included under the domain of CUET-PG.
