  • If the cancellation is done before the last date of submission of the form, then Rs. 200/- will be deducted and the whole amount will be refunded.
  • If you have applied for cancelation of admission after the submission date but within 15 days, then a deduction of Rs. 500/- will be made.
  • Rs. 1000/- will be deducted if you have applied for cancellation of admission within 16 to 90 days after the date of submission of the admission form.
  • But, somehow if you get delayed and apply for the cancelation of admission after 90 days, then you will not get any amount as a refund.

Apart from these guidelines, there are also other policies mentioned by the universities such as for those who have already received the manuals but now wish to cancel the admission. Hence, the students need to go through the terms and conditions and admission policies of the IGNOU university.

IGNOU is a reputed university and has a high demand among students. But there can be situations where the students may wish to cancel the admission that they have taken.
