  • The college has its own selection process under Delhi University. The college has an online application process.
    and the students have to fill the application online. The college selects some candidates for an interview and admission test by the first week of June. Every department has its own academic criteria and admission test/interview process. Reservation for minorities which amount to 50% and reservation for scheduled castes, tribes and other backward classes as allowed by the Indian Constitution is in force. There are some seats for NRI candidates also and the details can be known on the website.

    always confident

  • You will have to go to the websites of St. Stephen's college in order to know the exact details of the admission - procedure and also the number of seat allocation for NRI candidates can be ascertained through the same.
    Thereafter you have to apply on line and if screened for the test, you will have clear both written and oral test and finally you will be selected on the basis of your performance in these tests.
    The admission committee would announce the dates for admission sometimes in the month of June in each calendar- year and there is allocation of the seats for each quota namely General, SC, ST, NRI quotas and a due consideration will be made accordingly in your case as well.
