Full fees will be refunded if admission is canceled before October 31
The University Grants Commission (UGC) has given a big relief to lakhs of students and their parents who have taken admission in the graduation courses of various universities or colleges.
UGC has written to all higher educational institutions urging that if a student wants to cancel his/her admission before October 31, the entire amount paid towards fees, without cancellation fee, be refunded to him.
The commission has taken this decision for the academic session 2022-23
In a letter sent to higher educational institutions, the UGC said on Tuesday that the commission has decided that the full fees should be refunded to the students in case of cancellation of admission by the higher educational institutions.
The letter said that the commission has taken this decision for the academic session 2022-23.
The commission says that it does not want the parents of the students to face any financial hardship after the corona virus epidemic.
If you withdraw your admission between October 31 and December 31, you will have to pay Rs 1,000
The UGC has said in the letter that if students withdraw their admission between October 31 and December 31, then their full fees will also have to be refunded. However, they can be charged a maximum of Rs 1,000 as cancellation fee
That is, students who cancel the admission before October 31 will get full fee refund, while doing so between October 31 and December 31, the student may have to pay a maximum of Rs 1,000.
Refund policy of private universities may cause problems to students
As per the refund policy of many private universities, which are commencing their academic session between August and September, they will not give any refund in case the admission of students is canceled after one month of the commencement of classes.
After the release of CUET results, the admission process in universities will start in September. By then, studies in private universities will start and the refund window will end within a month.
In the academic year 2021-2022, the commission had made a refund policy
The UGC, in its guidelines on July 16, 2021, had formulated a policy for refunds on account of admission or migration of students during the academic year 2021-2022.
Let us tell you that recently the UGC had appealed to all the higher educational institutions to ensure adequate opportunities for the students of class 12 to take admission in universities and fix the last date for admission only after their board results are out.
