Admission Policy

All applications for admissions to any UG or PG degree course should be submitted by the date notified by the College. Late applications may not be accepted.

Admissions will be considered to be completed only when the full fees for the academic year are paid (against an official receipt) and the name of the applicant appears on the relevant rolls. Only the Principal can condone payment in full or allow payment in part.

  • Had three unsuccessful attempts at the same examination.
