Higher schooling regulator University Grants Commission (UGC) on Tuesday directed universities to refund the complete charges to college students who cancel their admissions or migrate to a special institute on or earlier than October 31. The final date to refund the payment is December 21 after deducting a cancellation payment of as much as ₹1,000, the fee mentioned.

As per the UGC refund coverage of many personal universities, after one month of graduation of programs, the payment cannot be refunded to the scholars. Most universities’ educational periods start in mid-August and September. With this new directive, the payment refund coverage might be prolonged to October 31 for the present educational session.

In July 2022, the fee had requested the upper institutes to set the undergraduate admission deadline after CBSE Class 12 outcomes.

“Several entrance examinations including CUET, JEE Main, JEE Advance etc. have been delayed, due to which admissions may continue up to October, 2022.”

“In view above, and in order to avoid financial hardships being faced by parents, it has been decided by UGC that full refund of fees should be made by the higher educational institutions on account of all cancellations of admissions/ migrations of students up to October 31, 2022 for the academic session 2022- 2023 as a special case…Thereafter, on cancellation/ withdrawal of admissions up to December 31, 2022, the entire fee collected from a student should be refunded in full after deducting not more than Rs.1000/- as processing fee,” the UGC notification reads.
