A new process to enrol students on the undergraduate course based on Common University Entrance Test (CUET) marks was approved by Delhi University's academic council. According to the new process, the education body will design a central portal in order for students to get admission to different colleges. Admission will be done as per the rules stated in the Common Seat Allocation System (CSAS).

"The academic council has approved the guidelines framed by the standing committee for admitting students to undergraduate courses," a member of the council was quoted as saying by the news agency PTI.

There will be three phases in order for students to get admission to CSAS. As per the guidelines issued by the university, the three phases are submission of the CSAS 2022 application form, selection of programmes and filling of preferences, and seat allocation and admission. Seats will be allocated based on a merit list

"Under the new system, one centralised portal will be designed for admission to all undergraduate programs of all colleges of the university, and admission will be done as per rules and guidelines in the Common Seat Allocation System," an official told PTI.

Students will have to make a one-time non-refundable payment towards the CSAS-2022 application fee. Candidates applying under the extracurricular activity (ECA) and/or the sports supernumerary quota will have to pay an additional fee, the official informed.

The second phase of the admission process will start after the declaration of CUET(UG) 2022 results.

A candidate will have to select programmes in which they want to take admission. They will have to confirm the programme-specific CUET (UG) merit score for all the selected programmes.
In the third phase, seats will be allocated through a merit list.

If two or more candidates have the same CUET merit score, the candidate with a higher percentage of aggregate marks (for the best three subjects of Class 12) will be given preference. If the score is still tied, the older candidate will be given preference.

The entire process will take place through a centralised CSAS portal. For admission through the sports quota, 50 per cent weightage will be given to the CUET score and the rest to a performance-based test.

A person who wishes to withdraw their admission would be charged Rs 1,000, officials said.

There will be no option to withdraw candidature once the spot admission round is announced.

As per the guidelines, multiple rounds of allocation can be conducted in case of the availability of seats due to cancellation and withdrawal.
