The University is all set to conduct Online admissions for Postgraudate courses. "We have finally decided to do with the Online Admissions", said SU Post Graduate council chairman Shukadeb Naik. Once, the admissions dates are announced, students can log onto the Sambulpur University website, he added.
"Students can download the prospectus and submit the application online and upload their photo at the designated place. If a student makes any mistake, it can be edited easily", he said.
The deposition of fees must be made in the given 'Power Jyoti' account number of the varsity. After which you will get a reference number, which must be written in your application forms. Then, take a printout of the submitted form and send the hard copy along with the photocopies of necessary documents to the Postgraduate department concerned for processing for their pre-admission entrance test.
The chairman also said "Students should check eligibility criteria properly before applying for any course as the university will not intimate if their forms are rejected on the grounds of eligibility".
Students can also download the admit card of entrance exam in the official website of Samalpur University. After entrance test, the list of successful candidates will be displayed in order of merit. In cases of students applying for multiple courses, have to deposit seperate application forms.
How did Utkal University fail in e-admission process?
Utkal University had introduced the mandatory e-admission process in the last academic year. However, after complaints of confusion and chaos by students as well as teachers, the varsity had to allow offline submission of forms and deposit of fees. Utkal had faced another major problem regarding collection of fee. Students were asked to deposit fees in the varsity account and attach its reference slip with the printout of application forms. A section of applicants allegedly made photocopies of the slips and used the same to apply for multiple departments, resulting in financial loss to the varsity.
Utkal PG Council chairman P K Mishra said this time corrective measures will be taken. "Students have to pay fees in the form of bank draft as was the practice during offline admission. They have to attach the original draft with the printouts of online submitted forms. There will be no direct deposit of fees by applicants in the varsity account," Mishra said.
