Title of the Practice: Admission Process


• Meet and exceed institutional goals in admission strategically and

• To ensure access to higher education by all categories of students.


The Commerce combinations of B. Com. do not get good enrolment due to the demand for other courses. The challenge is to attract and retain the students in commerce combinations. It is essential to ensure gender equity and access to education by the marginalized sections of the society by giving due weightage inadmission process.

The practice:

i.                    The admission process starts by a publicity in the leading newspapers and college website.

ii.                  The admission application forms are issued on the day of announcement of Higher Secondary results of Assam Higher Secondary Education Council. The applications are issued till the last date and time for receiving the application forms.

iii.                The following important aspects are displayed for information to the general public and aspirant students.

a.         Seat matrix for different courses and for different categories of students as per the Govt. norms.

b.         The cut-off dates for receiving the filled-in application forms, announcement of first list of selected students, last date for admission of the students selected under first list, announcement of second and subsequent lists.

c.         Fee structure for different courses and different categories of students.

d.         Students desirous of claiming admission under special categories like Sports, N.C.C., Physically Handicapped, etc. are suggested to submit a copy of the application with necessary documents to either the Principal or Sports Director in person. eg. An Inquiry counter will be set up to answer the queries and show the position of the candidate in the consolidated merit-list.

Special Aspects:

Admissions are carried out by a group of teachers with a senior faculty as the Admission Committee convener. According to the seat matrix, the first list of students selected for admission is announced on the date and time mentioned. Last dates are made known to the applicants. Depending on the availability of seats, further admission lists are announced until the last seat is filled by merit. Students with different abilities are advised to meet the Principal in person and establish the nature of infirmity with the necessary document. Based on the satisfactory presentation, seats are provided without looking into merit. Seats are reserved under each of the categories like SC/ST or OBC as per thes Govt. norms. Wherever the merit of students from SC/ST is higher compared to general merit students, the seats are announced from the general merit quota but at the reduced fees meant for these category students, thereby promoting a greater concern for equity of access to education. The fee structure is highly reduced and is as per the government norms. One of the mandates adopted by the college is to prioritize access to higher education.

Evidence of Success:

The reduction of drop –out rate in admissions to the Arts and Commerce stream is another proof of evidence.

Problems Encountered and Resources Required:

Due to a large number of students with merit belonging to reserved categories take seats from general merit quota, this entails a reduced financial resource to the college by way of fees. (Reserved categories of students have lower fee to be paid as per the Govt. norms) To ease the admission process and hasten the process, dedicated computers with good printers and high speed internet are essential. A robust admission software is required to be generated and custom made due to various constraints in generating the admission register, day book entries, receipt generation, etc.
