DU Admissions: Almost all non-reserved seats at St Stephen’s College are filled


DU Admissions: In the first round of seat allocation, almost all unreserved seats in undergraduate courses in St. Stephen’s College were filled, said delhi The university’s dean of admissions, Haneet Gandhi, on Tuesday.

Admission to minority seats reserved for Christian candidates is ongoing. There are 450 places in 11 undergraduate courses at the college.

The first round of allocation of places in Delhi University colleges ended on Tuesday with more than 59,100 students having secured their places by paying fees.

The St Stephen’s Admissions Process was the bone of contention between the college and the university for several months. It was only after the Supreme Court’s order earlier this month that admission to the prestigious college could begin.

The court refused to suspend the Delhi High Court’s order requiring St. Stephen’s College to follow the admissions policy prescribed by Delhi University.

This year, the university is admitting students by CUTE grades instead of their class 12 grades.

“In the first round of seat allocation, all unreserved seats (at St. Stephen’s College), which are over 200, have been filled,” said Dean of Admissions Haneet Gandhi.

“Meanwhile, admission for the rest of the seats (reserved for candidate Christan) is ongoing. We provided data to the college. They hold admission based on the interview,” she added.

The High Court had ordered the college to follow the university’s admissions policy, whereby 100% weighting should be given to the Common University Entrance Test (CUET)-2022 score while awarding admissions to non-minority students in undergraduate courses.

St Stephen’s College, however, wanted to give 85% weight to CUET and 15% to interviews for the admission of students in all categories.

The DU began admissions for more than 70,000 places last month.

On September 12, the university released its admissions and allocation policy called Common Seat Allocation System (CSAS). Admission through CSAS takes place in three phases – submission of the application form, selection of programs and filling in preferences, and allocation of places and admission.

About 59,100 applicants paid fees and gained admission into various undergraduate programs in the first round of seat allocation at Delhi University, Registrar Vikas Gupta said on Tuesday.

Tuesday was the last day for fee payment by those accepting college and their assigned course.

“Of the 72,800 students who accepted the college and course, approximately 59,100 sealed their admission by paying a fee,” Gupta said.
