IGNOU introduces new course-wise Registration Certification Scheme
BHOPAL [Maha Media]: IGNOU has introduced a new course-wise Registration Certification Scheme. The Course-wise Registration Certification Scheme (CRCS) will allow students to register for specific courses without having to register for an entire programme.
Under CRCS, one can register for a single course or a limited number of courses, ‘subject to a maximum of 16 credits’. According to IGNOU, the candidates will also be allowed to seek transfer of credits earned under the scheme by taking admission in any programme offered by the open university.
To register for the certification scheme, candidates have to register at www.ignouadmission.samarth.e du.in As per regulation for admission under IGNOU’s Course-wise Registration Certification Scheme, eligibility to register for a course will be the same as for admission to the programme from where the course is drawn.
CRCS will be offered in both the cycles of admission, except for courses offered under Research Degree Programmes and Awareness, Appreciation level Programmes. Students can register under CRCS for all courses, however, courses offered in combination will have to be taken together by the student.
Course once chosen cannot be changed or withdrawn, minimum and maximum period allowed for completion of the course registered will be between six months and two years.
