Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Open University launched Online Admission Process under University Management System (UMS) in 2017. Presently, all the activities and process related to admission of the University has been made completely online. 

The aspirant learners interested to take admission in any of the programme are required to register by creating their user ID and password on the Online Admission Portal before submitting their application. After registration, they can submit the online application form along with the details of Programme and Learner Support Centre selected for the same. They are also required to upload scanned copies of their academic credentials to prove their eligibility. The fees can be paid through Credit/Debit Card/Net Banking using the Online Payment Gateway. Submission of application is instantly acknowledged through email/SMS.

The online applications submitted by applicants are scrutinized by the Student Admission and Registration Division. Admission of applicants found eligible is confirmed online, after which the applicants receive SMS/email confirming their admission. Other important details like their enrolment number, study centre address, links for downloading the digital study material etc. are also communicated along with confirmation of admission. In case any deficiency is noticed in the application, the applicants are informed about the same through SMS/email, advising them to remove the deficiency. The applicants can track the progress of their application during the entire process, making it completely transparent.

After confirmation of admission students can download their Barcode-based student identity card from the online admission portal after logging in. The student identity card is tamper-proof, as the name/photo/signature of the student as stored on the Online Admission Server of the University can be checked by scanning the barcode. They can also download the fee receipt from the Eklava- Learner Support Portal.

The process of re-registration (students registering for subsequent semester/year of a Programme) has also been made completely online. Students receive alerts/reminders through SMS for timely submission of online re-registration forms. 

Requests for cancellation of fee are processed online and fee is refunded online as per the Refund Policy of the University.

The response of the students has been overwhelming as the online system is more convenient for students with 24x7 availability from anywhere anytime. However, considering the fact that there are disadvantaged communities like Jail Inmates where accessing online application may be difficult, the University has kept a small window for offline admissions open.

All the Regional Centres/Learner Support Centre of the University facilitates the learners in submitting online applications.
