The admission process for the 54,000 seats under Delhi University's four year undergraduate programme begins tomorrow with the sale of admission forms.

Students aspiring to get admission in various colleges affiliated to the university can submit the centralised optical mark recognition (OMR) forms both online and offline from tomorrow till June 16, an official said.

The online OMR forms will be available on Delhi University's website ( whereas offline forms can be bought from 18 centres across North Campus, South Campus and other colleges of Delhi University.

The offline paper-forms will cost Rs 150 for general category students and Rs 70 for SC/ST students.

The online OMR forms, for which students will have to pay through internet banking, will be much cheaper to encourage filing of forms online.

General category students can fill the forms online by paying Rs 100 whereas for SC/ST students it will cost Rs 50.

The university has also launched an Android-based mobile application -- DU UG Admission 2014-15 -- through which students cannot only get all admission-related information but also fill online admission forms.

The first cut off list will be released on June 24, followed by up to nine more lists depending on seat availability till July 21.

Students will get three days to complete the enrolment process under each of the first five cut off lists.

This year, Delhi University, in an effort to make the admission process smoother and uniform, has prohibited colleges from imposing any extra eligibility criteria on students.

"A student applying in five different colleges will have the same criteria for admission in all of them. Colleges can no more impose any extra-eligibility criteria for students. Rules will be same for all as set by the university," DU's media coordinator Malay Neerav has said.

Also, the option of choosing colleges in the form, which had been done away with last year, will be reintroduced and students can select as many colleges as they want to take admission.

Last year when the four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP) was introduced, students were only given the option to choose the course they wanted to study in the admission forms.
