Admission Policy

Rationale: Admissions to the UG, PG and Doctoral Programs are fair,
transparent, ethical and timely providing access to students
irrespective of their social, financial and class backgrounds.

Guru Nanak College of Arts, Science and Commerce was established in
1989 as a grant-in-aid linguistic minority (Punjabi) college to cater to the
educational needs of Punjabi speaking community settled in GTB Nagar,
Mumbai after partition. The college offers graduate programs in B.A
(Hindi / History / Economics / Political Science / Psychology / Mass Media
and Communication), B.Sc (Chemistry / Physics / Botany / Mathematics /
IT), B.Com, BBI, BFM, BAF and BMS; post-graduate programs in M.A
(Hindi), M.Sc (Chemistry) and M.Com; and doctoral (Ph.D) programs
(Hindi / Physics / Chemistry / Commerce).
All admissions are as per guidelines issued by University of Mumbai and
Government of Maharashtra.
• As per government rules, 50% reservation is offered to the Punjabi
speaking linguistic minority students.
• Remaining 50% seats and vacant seats in the linguistic minority
quota are offered to Open category students.
• Rules of reservations for SC, ST and OBC students are followed as
per the Government of Maharashtra notifications.
• Students with special talents in sports and arts are given due credit
in admissions.
• All fees taken are as prescribed by the University Authorities.

An admission committee comprising the teaching and admin staff oversees
the admission schedule. The entire admission process is online and
executed through the college portal i. e.
It is powered by an ERP and conducted through cashless transfer of fees.
The college invites application forms online from students who have passed their XIIth exams and are registered  on the University of Mumbai portal. The applications
are scrutinized on the basis of results and the merit lists are prepared category-wise (Minority /Open / SC / ST / OBC). Students from Boards other than the State Board of Maharashtra are considered following a thorough verification process. Admission of all students is strictly based on merit.
Various scholarships and freeships are offered to the deserving and
eligible students. Management supports the financially weak students in
the form of partial or total freeships and instalment facility in fee payment.
Once the admission process is completed, class-wise roll numbers and
subject groups are allotted to the students. In case of choice of electives,
the students are expected to write a statement of purpose.
