2. Participate in the Admissions Counselling Process.

  • Each candidate allotted a seat at NLU can choose between "Freeze", "Float", or "Exit" options in each round of counseling based on the conditions outlined in the admission counseling calendar. The "Freeze" option requires payment of a confirmation fee and full university fee to confirm the allotted seat. 
  • The "Float" option allows the candidate to hold their allotted seat while waiting for a higher preference NLU seat and pay the difference in fees. The "Float" option expires after the 4th round. The "Exit" option allows the candidate to leave the counseling process, but results in forfeiture of the confirmation fee. The confirmation fee is a non-refundable fee of Rs. 20,000 in the first and second rounds.

3. Learn about the Admissions Counseling Rounds

  • 5 rounds of admission counseling with dates in Admissions Counseling Calendar. Candidates wait for next round if not allotted seat. 5th round in June 2023 fills remaining vacancies with eligible candidates. "Float" options become "Freeze". 
  • Central admission process closes, but member NLUs may admit candidates following norms to fill vacancies.

4. Learn about the Refund Policy for Counselling Registration Fees

  • Refund Policy: If a candidate is not allotted a seat or exits the Counselling Process, their Counselling Registration Fee will be fully refunded. If they exit after May 23, 2024 with a seat, a Rs 5,000/- deduction will be made. 
  • If found ineligible, a Rs 5,000/- deduction will be made and the remaining fee will be refunded. Refunds will only be made to the original account. Confirmation Fees paid will only be adjusted at NLU and are not refundable.

5. Fee Payment at the allotted NLU 

  • Candidates who choose Freeze option in 1st or 2nd round must pay balance University fees by 11:59 PM May 14, 2024. Failure to pay by the deadline means the candidate will forfeit the seat & Confirmation fee and will receive a Counselling Registration fee refund with Rs. 5,000 deductions.
