The selected students will be informed to register for the Level I of the BIT degree programme. Initially students will be granted only a provisional registration.

Registration proper would be given only after the qualifications (e.g. Advance Level, Ordinary Level and other) are verified (e.g. by Examinations Division of the UCSC) or other equivalent qualifications are accepted by the University Authorities. Registration is valid for a period of one academic year. The students have to pay the registration fee annually to keep their registration valid and sit for examinations.

The registration of a student is cancelled, if he/she is not registered for 3 consecutive academic years. This rule will be effective irrespective of the level of registration from 2018 onwards. The maximum period a student can attempt an evaluation in each level of study (Level I, II or III) shall not exceed four (4) consecutive years from the initial registration of a particular year of study. If a student fails to do so, he/ she should be registered as a new student. Registering for BIT @UCSC will not disqualify any student from registering for any other internal or external degree offered in any other state university.

Registration Number

The registration number will be given to the students at the registration and a BIT Identity Card will also be issued. All inquiries regarding any matter pertaining to the BIT degree programme must be accompanied by this registration number.

BIT Identity Card

The BIT Identity Card remains as a property of the student until such time; the student obtains the Degree of Bachelor of Information Technology. Thereafter, the student should return it to the External Degree Centre (EDC) of UCSC. If the BIT Identity Card is lost, a duplicate will be issued on payment. For payments refer (Section 8). An affidavit should be produced to obtain the duplicate. Students will not be allowed to sit for an examination without a valid BIT Identity Card.

Cancellation of Registration

Any student at his/ her request may obtain cancellation of his student registration. In such an event the UCSC will retain 25% of the registration fee provided a written request will be made within 30 days from the closing date of registration. Otherwise no refund is made. No requests for cancellation will be entertained from students awaiting the results of an examination or pending disciplinary action in respect of any examination malpractice. If a registration is cancelled, the BIT ID card is necessary to hand over to the EDC.

Renewal of Registration

All students are required to renew their registration within a prescribed period after the release of results of Level I, II and III examinations. Renewal process is done online and the generated payment voucher should be used to make the payment. No other mode of payment will be accepted. Already registered students need to renew their registrations before the 31st of December, unless their registration depends on the release of results. Students will have to inform whether they have to be registered/re- registered for the next academic year depending on their examination results. A student have no right to claim to sit any examination after expiry of period of registration. Hence a student whose registration has lapsed must apply to the EDC If a student who is already registered for the BIT programme, and wishes to postpone his/her registration, he/she will have to inform the EDC for renewal of registration. To access online material and to take part in online assessments, the renewal of registration must be done before 31st December.

If a registered student would not continue his/her registration for any academic year will have to renew student registration by paying the arrears, up to a maximum of Rs. 5,000/=.

The students should complete any academic year within four years. If a student fails to do so, he/ she should be registered as a new student.
