The vision guiding AUD is the commitment that prospective students learn to value and appreciate the social privileges they enjoy because of the heavy subsidy that goes into public institutions of higher education in India. Therefore, a minimum proportion of the cost actually to be incurred by the University for each of its students is reflected in the fee being set per semester. Based on this philosophy, AUD has instituted a differential fee structure for different programmes, with an understanding that the upper slab is envisaged not to be so high that only a particular segment of society could afford it and the lower slab not so low that the sense of responsibility among the students goes missing. The differential fee structure ranges from Rs1000 to Rs.2000 per credit of course work for most of its courses. The fee for most programmes is Rs16000/- per semester, Rs.500/- per semester toward Student Welfare Fund, in addition to Rs.2000/- as refundable security deposit. It may be noted that at present the fee constitutes not more than 10 per cent of the operational cost.
At the same time, it is the stated policy of the University to ensure that no deserving prospective student, as far as possible, is denied the opportunity of studying at AUD merely due to her/his inability to pay the fees. The University therefore offers full and partial fee waivers to students who are in need of support given their economic backgrounds. In fact, 25 per cent of the fees collected from students are returned to the economically disadvantaged students by way of Fee waivers and scholarships. Over the previous 3 years, 229 students have been awarded fee waivers. Most of these have been full fee waivers. The University has also created a student welfare fund in order to support needy students in bearing the costs of study material, like photocopying, textbooks, and even subsistence. Through the fee structure as well as the exemptions offered, AUD hopes to inculcate a social sensitivity in its students – to respect what they enjoy as privileges and to be able to serve society in their future professional capacities.
Student Welfare Fund: The ‘student welfare fund'has been created within AUD with the objective to make financial assistance available for meeting the welfare needs of needy students, such as emergent medical assistance, purchase of books & study material, meeting the boarding & lodging expenses equivalent to the amount that is required to avail of AUD hostel facilities, and any other comparable needs of the student. An amount of Rs.500/- per semester is collected from all students towards ‘student welfare fund' and an amount equal to that collected from students shall be contributed by the University to this fund. The student welfare fund is managed and monitored by a committee, which includes a nominee of the student community.
Fees for Undergraduate Programmes
Rs. 16,000 per semester will be charged as the full semester fees. The total fee payable at the time of admission will be Rs.16,000 (for Semester 1) and a refundable caution deposit of Rs. 2,000 for the use of university facilities along with Rs 500 as contribution for student welfare for the semester.
