IGNOU Extends Admission Deadline for January 2023 Session to March 31, 2023


Candidates can apply for the IGNOU January 2023 session at ignouadmission.samarth.edu.in and ignouiop.samarth.edu.in, respectively.
The Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) has announced that it will be extending the deadline for admission into the January 2023 session. This news has been well-received by students who were facing difficulties in submitting their applications due to the ongoing pandemic.

The new deadline for admission into the January 2023 session has been set for March 31, 2023. This extension will provide students with an additional two months to complete the admission process, including filling out the application form, paying the fees, and submitting the required documents.

The decision to extend the admission deadline was taken in light of the unprecedented situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. With the pandemic still prevalent in many parts of the country, the authorities at IGNOU recognized the challenges faced by students in completing their admission formalities. The extended deadline will give students the necessary time and flexibility to complete the admission process.

The IGNOU Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Nageshwar Rao, said that the extension of the admission deadline was a student-friendly move. He also highlighted that IGNOU is committed to providing quality education to all, and this decision would ensure that no student misses out on the opportunity to enroll in the January 2023 session due to unavoidable circumstances.

IGNOU is India’s largest Open University and offers a wide range of programs, including undergraduate, postgraduate, and diploma courses. It provides access to education to students who are unable to attend traditional universities due to various reasons, including work commitments, financial constraints, or living in remote areas. The university offers a flexible learning environment, and students can complete their studies at their own pace and convenience.
