It envisages the admissions through centralized Single Window facilitating students and different Departments / Colleges of the University.  It also makes easy to follow particular time schedule for University admissions in each academic year and complete the process on time allowing smooth conduct of curriculum as per Academic Calendar.

            Ever since its inception, the Directorate of admissions got the dynamic direction from its Directors namely Prof. K.B. Prabhakara Rao (Department of Mathematics), Prof. P.V.V. Satyanarayana (Department of Chemistry), Prof. M.V.S. Koteswara Rao (Department of Political Science & Public Administration), Dr. G. Rosaiah (Department of Botany & Microbiology), Dr. M. Rami Reddy (Department of Physics) and Dr. B. Hari Babu (Dept. of Chemistry)

            The Directorate gives notification with clear schedule for student admission of an academic year through daily news papers covering Andhra Pradesh State, preferably in the 2nd week of March every year.  It also makes printed applications and information brochure available to the candidates seeking admission into different PG Courses of M.A., M.Sc., M.Com., M.H.R.M., M.Ed., M.P.Ed., Integrated 5 Year Programs (MBA-International Business and M.Sc.

A minimum of one month time is prescribed for receiving filled in application from the date of notification.

            Admission of students into all PG courses is made on the basis of the rank obtained by them in the entrance test conducted by the Directorate.
