St. Stephens and Jesus and Mary Colleges will be a part of Delhi University Centralised Admission Process from this year. Earlier, St Stephens College and Jesus & Mary colleges had their own and separate admission process previously for the selection and admission of the students. Both the institutions will join the centralized admission procedure but will continue with their own admission policy for selection of the students.
The admission committee has suggested that all the colleges under Delhi University should participate in the centralized Online Admission process. A committee member said, "It has been decided that these colleges will not have separate registrations but will be part of the centralised registration process. However, thereafter they will follow their own admission policy for selection of students."
The admission process in both St Stephens College and Jesus and Mary College will start from May 28, 2016. In the case of Jesus & Mary admission, candidates need to apply first at the University of Delhi centralized admission portal and then fill up Jesus and Mary Admission Form using the same registration number provided by Delhi University Centralised Admission Portal.
Some other colleges such as Mata Sundari College for Women, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Khalsa College and Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce were granted minority status by the Delhi High Court last year. These three colleges are run by the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee so they have approached the University authority to grant them an independent admission process for the upcoming session.
Various members from the executive and academic councils, nine college principals, and the committee comprising deans from the faculties of science, commerce and arts are working on an admission policy for the new upcoming academic session that will be notified by the end of May 2016.
