SOL Adheres to Three Year Mode

The School of Open Learning, University of Delhi, has decided to stick to the  three-year mode of offering undergraduate programme in the academic year 2013-14.However, the Delhi University is all set to implement the four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP), the School of Open Learning (SOL) has decided to go ahead with the three year degree programme, this session.

According to a statement issued by HC Pokhriyal, executive director, School of Open Learning, Delhi University, has said that as per the directives, they will be continuing with the three year degree programme for undergraduate admissions. He said developing the material according to the FYUP will take time. He also added that the three-year undergraduate degree provides good opportunities for students as they can pursue other degrees too. For example, students who enroll in BCom (Hons) from SOL, study CA, Tally, etc, simultaneously. Hence, by the time they graduate, they have different certificates, which help them.

As per sources, every year, about to 1.5 lakh students take admission in SOL. SOL conducts five undergraduate programmes — BA programme, BCom programme, BCom (Hons), BA (Hons) Political Science and BA (Hons) English literature. Students interested in pursuing various degree programmes at SOL can apply for admissions online instead of commuting and standing in queues.

Madhvi, in-charge, computer, SOL, explains the registration process, when a student takes admission for the first time, they will be allotted an SOL roll number. They will have to fill in the basic details such as valid email id and mobile number. She added that the online registration for students taking admission in first year will also solve the purpose of registering for exam as first-year students would not need to register themselves separately.

The payment option and fee transaction is done at the State Bank of India (SBI). Students can pay the registration fee through debit or credit cards and challan. Madhavi added that as soon as the payment process is complete, students can get a print out of receipt and exam form. They can keep one copy for their reference and can send another copy through post along with the latest mark sheet of DU.

Furthermore, Madhvi informed that students can fill in their details, get themselves registered on the SOL website and get the challan printed from the SOL website. They will have to take this challan to any of the nearby branch of SBI in any part of India (after one working day) and deposit their fee there. After a gap of two working days, students can take a print out of the receipt and their exam form and post it to SOL.
Students not comfortable with registering themselves online can also register through the offline mode by the admission date mentioned in the prospectus and website. For any further queries one can visit the official website of DU’s SOL:
