How to Apply

The institution is to submit a letter of intention along with the general information of the institution, for assessment and accreditation.  NAAC will scrutinise the information and inform the institution of its eligibility.  On receiving a positive response from NAAC, the institution has to send the prescribed fee for assessment and accreditation.  On receipt of the fee, NAAC will send the manuals and guidelines that will enable the institution to initiate the process of self-assessment.
