Degree college admissions too could go online from next year. The University of Mumbai has said that colleges affiliated to it should create their own website for online admissions from the academic year 2012-13.
Experts feel degree college students are experienced enough to fill online forms for admission, instead of being forced to visit colleges to collect and submit forms. Over 500 colleges are affiliated with the varsity and every year, 6 lakh students take admission into various courses, apart from traditional steams like Commerce, Science and Arts. "Before taking the final call, we will talk to college principals. We want each college to create its own website to create more transparency in the process. It may not be possible for the university to do this because there are more than 200 courses," said Dr. Rajpal Hande, director, board of college and university development. Dr. T. A. Shivare, principal of Hinduja College at Charni Road, said it was a good idea to make degree admissions an online process. "Many colleges already have their own websites. We already have the college form put up on our website that can be downloaded. Students only have to send a Rs. 100 demand draft to the college while submitting the form," said Shivare, who is also chairman of the Association of Non-government Colleges. Dr. V. N. Magre, principal of Kirti College in Dadar, said that online admissions will save a lot of time and man power. "The university should be congratulated for proposing this idea. I do not think anyone will object to this plan," said Magre.
