For those students, DU's School of Open Learning might crop up as a choice. School of Open Learning offers 5 under-graduate (UG) courses for and all those who secured 40% or above in their class 12 examination are eligible for admission.


The UG courses offered are BA (honours) political science, BA (honours) English, B.Com. programme and B.Com. (honours) and BA programme. All are distance-learning programmes. The course which received the maximum number of application is for B.Com programme and B.Com. (honours)

More than one lakh forms has already been sold by the School of Open Learning (SOL) so far. The fifth cut-off list of the regular DU colleges, could not bring any relief to the general category students. Admission was closed in almost all courses in nearly all colleges.

SOL could be beneficial for those who want to earn while they learn. Also the lower fee and the flexibility make this a viable option. Students from all profiles join this school.

The medium of instruction for SOL students is primarily through printed course material which is distributed by mail to all those enrolled. The sale of forms for undergraduate courses began on 1 June, 2011. But it usually picks up speed after the last cut-off list in regular colleges is declared. Last year, the number of students took admission in the school were around 1.2 lakh.

The last date for the sale and submission of forms is 1 August 2011 without late fee. Those who miss can submit the forms with a late fee of Rs 200 till 30 September 2011.
