Admission Policies And Procedure:
The Academic Policies and Procedures are an essential reading for students so that they remain fully informed about the current policies, rules and regulations of the Institute.
The policies also help the students to plan their course load, know the performance indicators and their computations.
The Academic Policies & Procedures along with periodic notices put up on different bulletin boards or e-mail Communication Constitute the primary means of communicating the college administrative and academic policies. It is therefore, important that students read the bulletin boards and e-mails regularly.
The policies + procedures are subject to change/amendments whenever new rules and regulations are approved by the College.
The institution offers admission to its various academic programs twice a year.

The requirement of entrance examination and personal interview may be waived in certain cases depending on student’s prior academic performance.
Advanced Placement/Course Waiver:
At the time of admission students who may have done similar course work and have earned grades elsewhere (in other local institutions or abroad) can apply for exemptions. Local Institutes previously attended must be chartered by the Government. Such cases will be examined individually to see the relevance of the courses and the level of grades obtained.
