Re-Registration/Renewal: TNOU collects tuition fees and offers the option to pay re-registration fees through online after each year of study until the end of the relevant course, taking the socio-economic environment into consideration.
Orientation Programmes prior to the launch of Online Admission system: The University took the initiative to organise orientation programmes for LSC Coordinators prior to launching online admissions.
Since the online admissions system allows for 24/7 access from anywhere, at any time, the response from students has been overwhelmingly positive. However, the University also keeps a brief window for off-line admissions for underprivileged, prison inmates, as they may not access online applications process. If necessary, the personnel at all of the University Regional Centres and Learner Support Centres facilitate and help students submit online applications.
