Q.

A.

Hi Douminthang,

Admission Process for St. Stephen's College, Delhi University


The admissions at St. Stephen's College are done separately and not along with the centralized admission process of Delhi University (DU). Thus, it's a little different from what we have in DU; here the admissions are based on two components with the following weights:
(i)   Class XII marks:    85%
(ii)  Interview:           15%

The Application Process

(a) Online:

  1. Online application forms are made available on their website : www.ststephens.edu sometime in the first week of June. You need to check the college website frequently to stay updated with the exact dates.
  2. The first step, once the forms are out, is to create a new account using your email address and choosing a new password. Once you're in there's a simple form with a few fields marked mandatory that you have to fill up online itself.
  3. Before applying for the various courses, make sure you're eligible for each of them as each course demands a slightly different requirement.
  4. After you've completed the form, you'll have to pay the application fees to complete your registration. The payment can be done online through credit/debit cards as well as through cash at any branch of State Bank of India (only up to a day after you submit the application form)


(b) Offline:

  1. Admission Prospectus and printed application forms are made available in the College sometime in the first week of June. You need to check with the college authorities or visit their website www.ststephens.edu frequently to stay updated with the exact dates.
  2. Once the forms are out, go to the college and purchase the number of forms that you require depending on how many courses you wish to apply to. (You can apply to only one course through one application form.)
  3. Before applying for the various courses, make sure you're eligible for each of them as each course demands a slightly different requirement.
  4. After you've completed the form, you'll have to hand out the form at the designated counters in the College or send them through Speed Post.

Note: Use only one of the two modes (a) or (b) for all applications.
