As confusing as everything that’s currently going on maybe, incoming freshmen might be having the hardest time figuring out how to apply to colleges online. A million doubts may arise about how they’ll continue attending classes and how safe it actually will be once this is all over. Lucky for them, Lovely Professional University has made it super easy for anyone trying to take admission. Here’s everything that LPU is doing during the ongoing pandemic:
- LPU NEST
LPU NEST is the entrance exam that all students must take before being considered for admission. This year, LPU conducted the exam completely in online mode making it easy for incoming freshmen to take the exam from the comfort of their homes. The students would be remotely proctored with a webcam during the exam and online interview sessions would be held for those wanting to take admission.
- LPU Touch
LPU Touch is LPU’s own app that has everything that a student may need. Freshmen and continuing students can view and access timetables, announcements, placement portal, assignment marks, results, examination timetables, fee notifications, doctor appointments, and many more. In short, this app is the lifeline of every student and professor in LPU and without it, life would be a little harder.
- LPU Live
LPU understands how valuable time is and with the lockdown, they made sure every student and faculty are productive. LPU Live is an app that connects students with their faculty and ensures that online classes are held without any hassle. The app has features like messaging, audio and video calling, file sharing, and many more. If you’re an incoming freshman and this pandemic goes on until after you’ve joined, don’t worry about missing your classes, you won’t feel the difference with LPU Live.
- Online Examination Platforms
You might be thinking about the exams that follow the online classes. Even before the pandemic, LPU conducted class tests online on various platforms like Examly, MyPerfectice, OAS, and more. The interfaces are beginner-friendly and you can easily get the hang of them. Mock tests are also held to make sure you get familiar with the platform.
LPU announced ‘COVID-19 FRONTLINE Scholarship’ scheme that awards students who are children of frontline workers, scholarships worth 20 crores. LPU recognizes everything that frontline workers are doing during these tough times and has initiated this scheme as a way of giving back and saying thank you. You can check if you’re eligible and apply for the scholarship here. Freshmen can also apply for scholarships based on their previous qualifications such as 12th and 10th grade marks.
- Fee Relaxations
LPU understands what everyone is going through and to support that, LPU introduced flexible fee payment options. Freshmen (except MBA Hons and M.A. (Punjabi/Hindi)) can now confirm their admission by paying Rs. 10,000 and pay the rest of the fee in instalments before July 15th, 2020. Students who wish to cancel their admission can apply for a refund online before August 15th, 2020 and get back the fee they paid with a deduction of Rs. 1000 (For PG Agriculture students refund can be given only before June 30th, 2020).
