* Extension in hours mainly to accommodate:
i) Students reaching LPU from different parts of the world & distant corners of India
ii) Heavy rush of Students to make the most of 31st July, the last day of Scholarship Scheme
In context to the heavy rush of students for admission in the Programmes of their preference at the Lovely Professional University; the Chancellor of the University, Mr. Ashok Mittal informed, While talking to the media: “We have extended working hours of the University, from 5 pm to 8 pm for Tuesday i.e. on 31st July 2012, mainly for two obvious reasons: The first one is to ease out the admission process for a large number of students reaching LPU from different parts of the world & distant corners of India. The other is to accommodate all those meritorious students who are strongly keen to make the most of 31st July, the last day of LPU Scholarship Scheme.” Continuing he said: “LPU’s foremost motto is that an aspiring student should not remain devoid of education, so up holding students request that they should be allowed some extra time to avail this opportunity, in case of delays due to certain unavoidable reasons. That is why, this special extension of three working hours is made to facilitate students.”
Illustrative, the last day of admission at LPU with scholarship scheme is 31st July, 2012; whereas, the last day of admission without scholarship scheme will remain up to 20th August, 2012. In fact, due to onset of Monsoon and heavy rains in some parts of the country, many of the students are reporting at late hours in the university because of train delays. Moreover, the Chief Warden of the Hostels has also assured the students the co-operative support to continue beyond 8 O’clock in the evening hours, for their settlement in the hostels. Also, Transport Department of the University has planned transport services from Jalandhar and Phagwara Bus Stands & Railway Stations to help out students reaching the university easily and well in time, with their baggages.
