Calcutta University students may change subjects till mid-December – Times of India

Kolkata News

KOLKATA: Colleges affiliated to Calcutta University will have to submit all the details of students who have taken admission in UG courses this year between October 25 and November 30. Students will be allowed to change their subjects, courses and streams within two weeks — by mid-December — after completion of final registration data uploading process.
The colleges will have to upload the details, including scanned copies of their mark sheets, pictures, signatures and reservation certificates, on the university’s portal. Hard copies of all certificates and documents will be verified later.
“Registration of the student is very important. Besides being important for examinations and registration purposes, it also gives an estimate about how many students have taken admission in a particular course in a college. It eliminates the attempt by some colleges to admit more students than the number of seats they have,” said a university official.
Colleges will have to complete all the processes related to students changing courses, subjects or streams within two weeks of submission of details for registration. “Once the registration is complete, students will not be allowed to make any changes. The university has requested the principals to complete this process within two weeks of submitting the details. Necessary changes will be made before registration is completed,” said a principal of a college.
The colleges will publish notices on their websites, directing students to apply for change in subject or course. “As per the directive of the university, we will have to do this online. So, students will be directed to mail the college authorities if they want to change their subject or course,” said a principal.
