Academic Counselling: 

   The students of each program are divided into groups. Each group has a supervisor who provides the students with academic guidance and helps them with the selection of courses. The administration circulates the list of supervisors among the students. The updated list of supervisors will be sent to the registrars of colleges each semester. Students can register online, with the exception of those who received warnings. The administration exhorts students through public meetings and placards to seek the counsel of their academic supervisors.

   The student makes his own selections first, and then discusses them with his supervisor. There is a grace period for withdrawal or adding or changing courses during which the supervisor can coach the student until he/she settles upon the final choice. The supervisor can help the student sort out all the problems facing him/her, so that his/her academic career proceeds smoothly. The student’s progress is also carefully monitored by the department where he/she studies. Applications may be submitted to the admin by supervisors on behalf of students having registration problems. Supervisors can also be tasked with sorting out the problems of students who have received warnings. Each supervisor will monitor the progress of such students and help them move ahead with their studies.
