Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

The Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) today extended its deadline for July admissions for most of its programmes till 18 August.

"The last date for IGNOU's July 2017 admission session for masters, bachelor's degree, diploma, and PG Diploma programmes, including the semester based programmes have been extended up to 18 August 2017," said the Registrar in-charge( Student Registration Division) Sri Latha, in a release.

However, admissions for the certificate programmes offered through the common prospectus ended today.

"Due to heavy traffic on the online admission server, the system response is slow. As a result, many applicants willing to apply for admission are unable to apply," said chief of IGNOU's e-support department V P Rupam.
