Enrollment is the process of verifying the original certificates, obtaining declarations from the parents/student, and issuing the Admit Card, on arrival to the campus. The university will send a separate communication detailing the procedure for commencement of classes and other information necessary for completing the admission formalities. The candidates are advised to look at the website for the actual date of commencement of first year classes.

Security Registration
It is part of the normal mandatory process that within the stipulated timeframe of arrival in India, the student has to register his/ her name with the police in the Foreigner Regional Registration Office (FRRO). The timeframe may vary from 24 hours to 14 days of arrival depending on the country of origin. A student with a PIO card also must register at the FRRO. Only OCI card holders need not register. Chitkara University would only provide necessary assistance in this regard. The applicable immigration processing fees and other related expenses have to be additionally borne by the student

Program Change
No change of Program is allowed after the issue of confirmed admission letter.


Office of International Affairs (OIA) is a nodal point to contact for any query regarding admissions of International Students or for Study abroad programs. Students can also be admitted under Exchange Programs for which there should be a Memorandum of Understanding.

  • Admissions are based on academic performance in the Class XII or equivalent examination and satisfying the guidelines of the respective councils governing the engineering, Medicine, allied health sciences, and architecture education. The admission procedure, application form (online as well as hard copy), fees etc are all different from those for the domestic students.
  • Reception and orientation – New international students are welcome to register with the OIA to receive important information about settling into their new environment. The orientation programs also includes trips and tours around campus and City.
  • English Conversation Programme – If English isn’t your first language, this is your opportunity to improve your English language skills.
  • Cross-cultural counseling – Our cross-cultural counselor provides culturally sensitive counseling to students on personal issues. Feel free to discuss anything from family problems to depression to self-esteem.
  • Social and cultural events – The OIA offers students a taste of Chandigarh and various cultures by hosting cultural and social activities.

Examination and Award of Degree
The process of examination, grading, and award of the degree is no different from that of Indian students.
