Application Procedure :
The following THREE-step procedure is necessary for the successful completion of the ONLINE Application. For details, visit the UCEED website. It is the responsibility of the candidate to go through the UCEED Brochure available online to understand the exact procedures for UCEED application.
Step 1: Registration
i. All the candidates must first REGISTER online before proceeding to fill the application form. You may do this by clicking the Apply Online link on the UCEED website.
ii. During the registration, one must provide a valid email address and an active mobile number since the UCEED office will use these contacts for all future communications to the candidates.
iii. Once the registration page is submitted, an email will be sent to the registered email address with a link for validating the email address (in case one does not find the email in the Inbox, please check the Junk/SPAM folder). A password will also be sent to the registered mobile number, which has to be used for completing the registration process. If a wrong email address and/or mobile number was provided, then one must register afresh with the correct details.
iv. Do not delete the email sent to you. This will be useful for future reference. When you click on the emailed link, you will be provided with a login screen, where you have to enter your email address as the user id and the password sent through SMS. On successful login, you will be provided an application form to fill in and a registration id (UC16 followed by a 6 digit number; e.g., UC16123456).
v. Provide the correct phone number, email id, and note down the password and application id. They are critical for later transactions such as checking UCEED application status, correcting discrepancies (if any) & re-uploading documents, downloading Admit Card, checking UCEED Results, downloading Score Card, checking B. Des application status etc.

Note: a) It is the responsibility of the candidate to make sure that he/she is eligible for UCEED 2016. Application Fee will not be refunded even if the application is rejected.
b) If a candidate makes multiple payments for the same application, refund will be made only after 15 Mar 2016.
