Choose how you want to apply
At NU we offer two modes of admission for all students applying for any of the undergraduate programmes:
- Early Admission Mode (EAD)
- Regular Admission Mode (RAD)
Early Admission Mode
Early admission is for those students who have already decided upon NU as their preferred choice of undergraduate education. It is ideal for those students who have experience dealing with a challenging curriculum and who know beforehand what programme they wish to take.
NU’s Early Admission Mode (EAD) allows those students preparing for their Class XII board examinations in 2024 as also those who have taken their Class XII Board examination not earlier than March 2022, to apply to their desired programmes beforehand.
It is also the perfect option for those who want to set up their own startup ventures after graduation. However, there are limited seats granted through this mode and admission is granted on first come first served basis to all those who meet the admission criteria.
A student enrolled through EAD gets a chance to
Students admitted under EAD are eligible for ‘Merit based Scholarships’ under the Scholar Search Programme.
The Acceptance fee under EAD is adjustable against the refundable Security Deposit payable at the time of Enrolment.
Note* – Applications for EAD 2024 are now open.
Regular Admission Mode
Regular Admission Mode (RAD) is the typical option for most students seeking admission to NU’s prestigious undergraduate programmes. Students applying through RAD may do so after they have completed their Class XII examinations. Students who have completed their Class XII boards in 2022 or 2023, or those who are appearing for their board examinations in 2024 are eligible to apply through RAD.
Students applying through this mode are also eligible to seek scholarships under the NU Scholar Search Programme. Admission will be granted on a first come first served basis to only those applicants who meet admission criteria.
Students seeking a lateral transfer must submit the following documents:
- Mark sheets and/or grade sheets of the first semester or the first academic year (two semesters) as applicable
- A copy of syllabus certified by college/university
- Reason for seeking lateral transfer
- Course application form via online or offline mode
Note: *There is no automatic waiver of credits previously accumulated by the applicant. A final credit waiver will be arrived at after examining the commonality in course content of NU and the applicant’s institution.
