LPU extends working hours to ease out on rush of admissions


Jalandhar, July 30, 2012: In context to the heavy rush of students for admission in the programmes of their preference at the Lovely Professional University; the Chancellor of the University, Ashok Mittal said: “We have extended working hours of the University, from 5 pm to 8 pm on July 31, mainly for two obvious reasons.

Adding, he told that the first reason was to ease out the admission process for a large number of students reaching LPU from different parts of the world and distant corners of the country. The other reason was to accommodate all those meritorious students who were strongly keen to make the most of July 31, the last day of LPU Scholarship Scheme, he added.

Adding, he said: “LPU’s foremost motto is that an aspiring student should not remain devoid of education, so up holding students request that they should be allowed some extra time to avail this opportunity, in case of delays due to certain unavoidable reasons. That is why, this special extension of three working hours is made to facilitate students.”

The last day of admission at LPU with scholarship scheme is July 31; whereas, the last day of admission without scholarship scheme will remain up to August 20. In fact, due to onset of monsoon and heavy rains in some parts of the country, many of the students are reporting at late hours in the university because of train delays.
