Overview: The overarching framework for admissions to the college is defined by the parent University of Delhi and is the same for all its constituent colleges. Candidates who wish to be considered for admission to various UG Courses in different colleges are required to register Online. As such, DU does not permit direct registration through a pre-admission form at the college level. Admission to any course is on the basis of a pre-announced eligibility criteria. The college declares a minimum 'cutoff' percentage for each course. The 'cutoff' announced is usually different for admission under UR/OBC/SC/ST/PwD categories. All students with marks above the announced 'cutoff' are admitted, irrespective of the sanctioned number of seats. In case seats remain unfilled, the college lowers the 'cutoff'. This process is continued in accordance with a given time schedule in permitted number of steps, till all seats are filled. In 2015-16, DU scheduled 10 'cutoff' lists giving applicants three days for completing the process of admission in each case. The process, although complex, is well explained through all available channels by both, the university and the college.

Supernumerary Seats: Candidates applying under certain categories of reservation such as children of War Widows/Kashmiri Migrants are required to register separately at DU and are admitted through a centralized process. Foreign students are also centrally admitted to the college after applying to the DU Foreign Students Registry.
