After Completion Of These 4 Papers For The Remaining (19+2=21)-4-9 (Already Completed As Above)=8 Papers, Can I Get Subsequent Re-Registration Automatically Or Have To Go Through The Process Of Re-Registration Again And How Much Time Am I Entitled To Complete The Above Programme?
You were initially registered for MBA Programme (through Entrance test) in January 1997 session (Enrol.No.E1) and during the 13 year duration successfully completed three courses only (MS-1, 91 & 95). Prior to that you had taken admission under DIRECT ENTRY SCHEME (PGDOM-E2), without the requirement of clearance of Entrance Test, and PG Diploma in Operations Management had been awarded to you at the 8th Convocation of the University
held on 08.03.1997 (based on successful completion of MS-5, 8, 51, 54 & 94 in Dec.1995 TEE). Again you had taken admission under DIRECT ENTRY SCHEME (PGDMM-E3), but completed only one course, i.e. MS-6.
2) Now, maximum duration of MBA Programme has been fixed at eight years. A letter in this regard has been sent to all the old students of MBA Programme
(3.81 lakh students, including you) in Feb.2017 advising them to complete all the requirements for the award of MBA degree latest by Dec.2017 Term-end examination. It was also published in all national dailies as well as vernacular newspapers. The Notification has been published once again in the newspapers recently. A scanned copy of the Notification and the letter dated 01.02.2017 could be downloaded from IGNOU website (STUDENTS ZONE).
3) However, the rules for registration remain unchanged, i.e., a course once registered must be successfully completed within two years (i.e., four semesters) failing which a student is required to remit the fee once again and the registration is validated for two years again (it will not be extended beyond Dec.2017 for MBA old students). The validity of registration of the courses done for July 2017 session by the students of pre-July 2017 cycle, will be ONE semester only, as against the normal four semesters, due to fixing of maximum duration in Management Programmes. In a nutshell you have left with one chance only (Dec.2017 TEE) to complete all the requirements for the award of IGNOU MBA Degree. Please note that under no circumstances the duration would be extended beyond Dec.2017. You can also appear in June 2017 TEE; provided registration of the course(s) is/are valid.
4) Re-registration for July 2017 session is open now. Please contact the Regional Centre and submit the RR Form with requisite fee, as per schedule. Re-registration Form can also be downloaded from IGNOU website (IGNOU Students Zone). You can re-register for maximum four courses for July 2017 session and the validity would be over by Dec.2017. Since your records are at Regional Centre, Guwahati, you will have to submit the Re-registration Form at RC, Guwahati only. RC, Vijayawada, will not accept your Re-registration Form.
5) For any further assistance, please contact the Regional Centre immediately or else write to MBA Programme Coordinator or to Student Service Centre. To know the credit transfer policy, you may write to MBA Programme Coordinator or to Director, School of Management Studies.
