IGNOU Re-registration

  • When you are taking admission for 2nd year or 3rd year, it is known as re-registration process. You have to pay for the course fees and you get re-registered. The fee here is the programme course fee which is divided in the equal number of terms. For e.g. if you took admission for BDP course, then the total fees is Rs 6000 which is divided into 3 parts, i.e. Rs 2000 for each term.  So the Re-registration amount becomes Rs 2000 each time.
  • There is a maximum time period for every programme course. If you are unable to complete your programme course in the given time period then your registration for that programme course gets over. If you want to complete your course after the said time period, then you have to register for that programme course again by paying re registration fees.
