The students coming to the campus will have to follow COVID-appropriate measures. It must be noted that attendance during these classes will not be compulsory and students can also stay at home and continue their studies. All the information related to DU reopening is here.

It must be noted that the college will function in a phased manner while online studies will continue for students. Thus, this time the syllabus will be completed in both offline and online modes. After a long time, there will be a resumption of physical classes, but the students attending the classes will have to follow certain rules issued by the state government. According to the Standard Operation Procedure issued by the government for universities, it clearly states that any individual feeling sick must immediately self-monitor and report the illness to the authorities. The use of the Arogya Setu App wherever convenient, regular hand washing, and maintaining a six-foot social distance should be strictly followed.
