The university will be following the reservation system and the fee structure for last year will be followed, announced Shiv Das Meena, government-appointed administrator of the university.
He made clear that the university will be following the Annamalai University Act 2014, and in doing so it will be following the norms set by Tamil Nadu Admission in Professional Educational Institutions Act, 2006.

The university has also moved the Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission for getting “equivalence” to the integrated courses as per the reports by The Hindu.
