This year, students seeking admission in one of the degree colleges in the city [except autonomous institutes] will have to register at the University of Mumbai portal before applying to the colleges.
As per the guidelines, students applying for undergraduate courses at colleges affiliated to the university will have to go through a mandatory pre-admission registration process from June 14 to June 16. Students will however, have to buy admission forms from their chosen colleges before registration.
Since colleges will conduct the admission, applicants will have to attach a copy of their online registration forms while submitting their forms at different colleges. The pre-admission registration allows students to apply in multiple colleges for more than one course.
Students seeking admission autonomous institutes in Mumbai, however, will have to apply directly at the college. According to the university, through the online registration process, the university creates a database of the students information studying in in the affiliated colleges. This will help MU check eligibility of students, issue them exam hall tickets and declare results.
This year, the university has decided to continue with Maharashtra Knowledge Corporation Limited (MKCL), a public limited company, for the pre-admission online registration. Last year, the admission process was delayed by three weeks after the university tried to appoint a new service provider.
The colleges, however, are skeptical if the university can stick to its schedule. We will have to keep our fingers crossed. The admission process should be wrapped up in 15 to 20 days, so that we can start the classes at least by July 1, said MB Madlani, principal, KPB Hinduja College.
Colleges said that they would start classes as soon as they get a sizeable number of students. We can start the classes after the second merit list is published because by that time most of the students take admission, said BB Sharma, principal, Vaze College, Mulund.
