Admission Programmes Rules

Spot Admission Programme

For convenience of the public as and when felt necessary, the ICDEOL creates spot admission centres at various places in the country. A notice to this effect is published in the leading newspapers of the country. However the applicants are advised not to wait for the creation of such centres. They should instead send the application/enrolment form duly filled to the office at Shimla at the earliest and within the date(s) prescribed by ICDEOL.

The spot admission centres are manned by the officials deputed by the ICDEOL from the Head-Quarters but they are not authorized to accept cash payments towards the fee (except for the price of the handbook of information-cum-application form) Payment of fee at the spot admission centres shall be accepted only through crossed IPOs/Bank Draft drawn in favour of the Director, International Centre for Distance Education and Open Learning, Himachal Pradesh University, Summer Hill, Shimla-171005. The Bank Draft should preferably be drawn on the State Bank of India, Summer-Hill, Shimla-171005
