If you are a student at Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), you may have heard the term “IGNOU Re Registration.” And most people do not understand what it means? And when do we have to do Re-Registration?

For the January session, the IGNOU Re-Registration process is currently ongoing, and the deadline for IGNOU Re-registration has been extended until February 29, 2024.

If you also have such a question in your mind, then keep reading this Post. In this Post, we are going to give you detailed information about IGNOU Re Registration. After reading this post, you will get answers to all your questions about it.

So let’s now clear all the confusion about it one by one.

What is IGNOU Re Registration?

In IGNOU, if you have taken admission in any course, then the process that takes place to take admission in the next Year / Semester is called IGNOU Re Registration.

That is, when we take admission in a course in IGNOU, the process that happens for the first time is called IGNOU Admission. But when we take admission to go to the next Year / Semester of the same course, then that process is called IGNOU Re-Registration.

Now let’s try to understand with a simple example.

We all know that B.A. is a 3 year course. If someone wants to do B.A. from IGNOU. This student will have to take IGNOU Admission to get admission in the first year. After this, he will have to do IGNOU Re Registration to go to the 2nd and 3rd year.

That is, B.A.

  • 1st Year :- IGNOU Admission
  • 2nd Year :- IGNOU Re Registration
  • 3rd Year :- IGNOU Re Registration

In this way, this student will have to do Admission once and re-registration twice, then his B.A. course will be completed from IGNOU.

The same happens in Semester courses as well. They have to take admission in the first semester and re-registration in all the remaining semesters.

When to do IGNOU Re Registration?

Now we know what IGNOU Re-Registration is. But now the next question arises is when to do Re-Registration?

We all know that IGNOU provides the facility of Admission twice a year. Similarly, the facility of Re-Registration is also available twice. Whenever your previous Year / Semester is about to end, you have to get your Re-Registration done whenever Re-Registration starts before that.

Let’s understand this with an example. Suppose I took admission in B.A. in January 2024, then my 1st year of B.A. will be completed in December 2024. Therefore, I will have to get Re-Registration done for the next year i.e. second year of B.A. whenever Re-Registration starts before December 2024.

The same condition applies to Semester students as well. They also have to get Re-Registration done in the next Semester before their Semester ends.

How to know if IGNOU Re Registration has started?

Friends, normally when the admission for the next year / semester takes place, Re-Registration also takes place on the same date. That is, when the admission is going on, you can get Re-Registration done for your next year / semester.

But sometimes IGNOU announces separate dates for admission and Re-Registration. For example, the dates for Admission and Re-Registration for the July 2018 session are different.

To know the clear date, you can contact your Study Center or Regional Center. They have information about when the Re-Registration date will start this time.

Also, IGNOU notifies about it on its official website. So you can also get information about it from IGNOU Website.

Here are the steps to check the IGNOU Re Registration date on the official website:

  2. Click on the “Admission” tab.
  3. Select “Re-Registration” from the drop-down menu.
  4. The Re-Registration dates will be displayed on the page.

Here are the steps to check the IGNOU Re Registration date through Study Center or Regional Center:
