With the academic year about to begin, School of Open Learning (SOL), Delhi University, has decided to step into the online space for admissions. However, the school will retain the manual admission system as well; therefore, students can apply either in person or online. According to H.C. Pokhriyal, executive director, SOL, a committee had been constituted which was mulling over a number of proposals to introduce the online process for the last few years.
Finally, this year, the governing body approved online admissions with the State Bank of India (SBI) agreeing to provide the gateway for payments and fee transactions. Going online, he says, will cut down on time and cost and simplify the admission process. "However, we will not be scrapping the manual process as it is a huge jump from manual to direct online and many candidates may not be comfortable yet," he adds. Students applying from distant states, including the Northeast, will save on time and effort, once they become comfortable with the process. Pokhriyal adds, "When students apply online, they will be checked on the authenticity of the documents submitted. This will help us streamline the number of students taking admissions."
