Admissions through JEE (Main) Score

Admission Process and Rounds:

  • The admission process has multiple rounds.
  • In each round, the institute will allot a seat to eligible applicants, and seat allotted applicants will have a deadline by which they can accept or decline the allotted seat.
  • In the event no seat is allotted to the applicant, the applicant can choose to continue to further rounds. This is NOT automatic.

(Jump to Round and Refund Schedule)

Seat Acceptance:

  • The applicant should use the portal to explicitly accept the seat and pay the required fees as given below.
  • The applicants who fail to do so will have their seat allotment cancelled and will not be considered for further rounds of admission.

Continuation to Further Rounds:

An applicant who has not been allotted a seat MUST explicitly concur (agree) to participate in further rounds of seat allotment. This requires logging onto the application portal, indicating acceptance and paying the required fee.

Cancellation and Refund Policy:

The applicants can cancel their seat allotment at any time before reporting to the institute by selecting the cancel seat option in the application portal.
Depending on the round of seat allotment and the date of cancellation, applicable refund will be made to the seat cancelled applicant within 10 working days. Refund amount details for each round are listed in the table below.

Admissions Counseling Procedure (Summary)

  • In every round, the applicants have to either accept an allotted seat or confirm their willingness to participate in the next round by a specific deadline.
  • If a seat is allotted and you are satisfied with your current allotment, accept, lock the seat, and proceed for payment in the online portal. The allocation will be locked in your name and you will not be considered for your higher preferences in subsequent rounds.
  • If you want to be considered for your higher preferences in the next round of allotment, you need to first accept the allotted seat and make the required payment to complete the seat acceptance. You can leave the accepted seat unlocked while doing so. Failure to accept the allotted seat and pay the fees will remove you from all subsequent rounds of seat allocation.

Admissions Counseling (Detailed)

The flowchart below explains the process that an applicant is to follow in every round.

If you do not lock a seat and the seat is upgraded in a later round, you will have to accept the upgraded seat or give up the seat. You cannot go back to your earlier allocated seat.

The cancellation deadlines for the round when an applicant was offered a seat for the first time and accepted will determine the refund amount in case of seat cancellation. This is regardless of whether (a) the seat offered and accepted for the first time was in a programme of highest preference of the applicant or, (b) there was an upgrade in a later round, to a seat in a programme of higher preference of the applicant.
 
Refund Illustration:
1. Suppose an applicant’s program preferences are [A, B, C] in that order.
2. Suppose the applicant did not get a seat in Round 1.
3. Suppose the applicant gets a seat in Program B in Round 2 and accepts it. Then, cancellations dates and refund amounts of Round 2 will apply to the applicant.
4. Suppose the applicant gets an upgrade offer to Program A in Round 3 and accepts it. Still, the cancellations dates and refund amounts of Round 2 will continue to apply to the applicant.
5. In case the applicant cancels the seat, the refund amount is as mentioned for Round 2 (and not Round 3), as on the date of cancellation.
Note:
  • The number of Rounds of admission that will be conducted is subject to the availability of seats.
  • All deadlines are at 5.00 PM Indian Standard Time of the announced date.
  • All refunds are repayable within 10 working days.
  • The dates for our allotment of seats, your acceptance/cancellation of the
    allotted seats, etc., may be modified based on the JoSAA-2022 schedule. Please visit our website regularly and await the announcement.
  • Seat allocation is final after the last round. No upgrading is permitted even if there are unfilled seats.
  • The institute reserves the right to conduct different rounds of seat allocation based on the available seats and the number of acceptances after a round.
  • If a candidate fails to meet the eligibility criteria mentioned on our website, the candidate becomes ineligible, and his/her admission will be canceled.

  • If an applicant already has an accepted seat at IIIT-H in another admission mode, and later gets a seat in JEE mode, they can accept it only after relinquishing the earlier accepted seat. Further, they must accept the first instance the seat is offered in the JEE mode regardless of it not being their highest preference programme, to switch and continue in the JEE mode.
  • First-year students should report to the institute tentatively end of October 2022 for registration, welcome session and classes.
