IGNOU admission registration status by name and date of birth

Is it true we can check IGNOU admission details by name and DOB?

Last year one of my students asked me the same question, then I told him this facility is not available. You need a valid credential while checking registration status.

5 Reasons IGNOU admission status are not confirmed.

Getting approval for an application is essential to the university. Did you receive a cancellation notice? It might be because of guidelines (aka eligibility criteria).

I am receiving emails and messages from new candidates about their application status. “My admission status is not confirmed”. I had paid my registration fees. Let’s check the reasons below.

Net copy of mark sheet: an online copy of the mark sheet is not a valid document. Whenever you apply, upload an original scanned copy of the documents (Don’t upload the internet copy). If you don’t have original documents, you can get them from the DIGILOCKER apps/ website.

Non-recognized board: Don’t upload fake or non-recognized board certificates. Else University will reject your application.

BPP result: The validity of the BPP course is only two years and now, this course is unavailable.

Passing subjects–last year, I received a call from a new candidate. He informs me, “my IGNOU admission status is showing cancel” what happens with my application form?

I checked his documents from the ISC board and informed him he had passed only four papers and a minimum of five passing subjects required to apply for a degree course.

Don’t upload the mark sheet if you passed in only four subjects

Last but not least

Provisional certificate issue: I have seen master’s degree students face problems with IGNOU online admission status not confirmed. Below is the reason.

The Provisional or original degree certificate is compulsory for a master’s degree.

My experience with IGNOU admission status 2021-22

During the lockdown, students of Calcutta University had only received a mark sheet, and they did not receive the provisional certificate from the university. Most of the candidates faced discrepancies in the portal.

Today, I am going to share an incident. Last year, I saw a student at Bikash Bhavan (Kolkata regional centre). He was quite tense.

I asked him the reason that what the concerned. He answered that the university did not yet confirm IGNOU admission status for July 2021, and it has been more than a month, and the portal is showing the discrepancy.

After listing to him, I asked for his details and saw that the documents were incomplete. The master’s degree course required some essential documents.

1. Graduation mark sheet

2. Original certificate / Degree certificate

But the student I met was carrying only a mark sheet—why his IGNOU online admission status was pending.

In the end, I advised him if you do not have the original degree certificate.

Then you need to collect your leaving certificate from the college in which you have completed your graduation. Finally, they followed my advice and got IGNOU admission status confirmation within four days.

Suppose your centre takes a long time to provide the documents. You can ask your college to provide you with a college leaving certificate.

You can now take IGNOU new admission with a graduation mark sheet and college leaving certificate without paying extra.

This problem could also be with you.

1. Original Graduation certificate

2. Provisional certificate

3. College leaving certificate

You can upload any documents from the above list. Surely management will confirm your IGNOU admission status, and no discrepancy will exist.

How to check the IGNOU Registration Status?

Most new candidates don’t know how to check IGNOU registration status. The student management dashboard is one of the best tools developed by a university. It helps us find registration details like subject code, study centre code, address, mobile, email, etc.

If you have applied for correction in the IGNOU student profile, it will be helpful—else no need to check regularly. A change in the portal will appear on the right side of the registration page.

While submitting the assignment, don’t forget to print the student status page because the study centre can ask you.

What happens if I misplaced my IGNOU username and password

How can I recover If I forget the user id and password in the IGNOU admission login?

Don’t worry about the login credentials. You need to follow the steps to reset the username and password.

First, check your registered email. Your username and password will be there (if no, skip to other steps)

Click on forgot username >Enter your control number, and click on submit.

Click on forgot password >Enter your username and click the submit button

How to get IGNOU enrollment number

Sometimes enrollment no ( “roll ID”) is a unique number provided by the official management for student records.

Check here the sample no-20024**** course BAG. You can find the student enrollment number on the Identity card.

What is the control number in IGNOU?

If I ask which is the most important number used everywhere in university after new admission, your answer is “University enrollment number.” Still, it’s not exactly because the IGNOU control number plays a vital role when you forget the username and password, which helps reset it.

So whenever you submit an online application, please keep a copy of the registration form and save it for future reference.

Note: You cannot check admission status by control number because the new Samarth portal is not providing this option.

How to cancel IGNOU admission Form?

Once your admission is confirmed you cannot apply for cancellation or refund, for more information about refund policy I will recommend you to visit the official website.

FAQ- how many days does IGNOU take to confirm admission.

It depends on the course. If you have enrolled in a Bachelor’s degree course and your documents are ok, chances are within 7-10 days, you will get confirmation. Sometimes it takes more to confirm the application. But if you find any discrepancy in your dashboard, your admission confirmation may take over 20 days.


Most students make mistakes after submitting the registration form and don’t check the application status.

It’s a common reason for IGNOU admission status not being confirmed.

If your documents are ok and you have submitted the fee and all the details, you will get an admission confirmation letter by email from the university.
