Amongst the dilemma of choosing a college over a course or giving preference to a course over a college, a tide of thoughts and anxiety persists in the mind of a DU aspirant. With the admission process in full swing, the capital city has observed a surge of such students flooding into the city. While not all can get a seat in their aspired course or college due to the sky-high cutoffs, the students manage to book themselves a seat by either sacrificing their dream college or course. However, don’t mull over it too much. Wait patiently for the next cut off to be released, maybe you will manage to get into that desired college or course. Also, don’t forget to make yourself happy by realising that you are that portion of the herd that managed to make it to DU. After all, not everyone survives the frenzy of the admission season.

Another thing that keeps students on their toes is the cancellation process. While the admissions are in itself very tiring, the withdrawal process is another summit that must be conquered if admission is to be sought in a better course or college. A student can withdraw their admission only “n-1” number of times where n is the number of cutoffs to be released. Suppose the number of cutoffs to be released is 6, then the student can withdraw and seek admission only 5 times. Here, we have a checklist highlighting the key things that a student needs to do, to withdraw their admission from a said college, to apply to the college of their choice.

1. Cancel the existing admission- The aspirant is already a student of one DU college. Therefore, he cannot apply to multiple colleges at the same time. Thus, the student must cancel his admission from the existing college but one has to be vigilant in decoding whether they have actually cleared the cut off for their desired college before cancelling their admission from the existing college because once cancelled, it is not possible to get readmitted into the same college during the same cut-off for the same course.

2. Print the admission form– After you have cancelled your admission from the existing college, you will get your refund from the college after deducting ₹1000 as processing fees. Now, you’re not a DU student. Go to the portal of the desired college and print the admission form from your chosen college.

3. Collect original documents- From your previous college, submit an application and follow the steps for withdrawal of original documents, then collect the original certificates, mark sheets and other necessary documents and head to the applied college.

4. Repeat the admission process- After reaching the college where admission needs to be taken, repeat the admission process and Voila! you’ve finally landed into your desired college or course. Complete the admission process with all the marksheets, certificates, documents and three recent passport size photographs and the requisite number of photocopies.

Hope this article brings some clarity to you. Remember to stay hydrated in the Delhi heat. Good luck to all aspirants and Congratulations to those who’ve already been admitted.
