Refund Policy:

There are numerous students who want to study MDS only at Saveetha. We feel it will be a great disservice to these candidates if half-minded candidates block their opportunity only to leave the seat vacant later. To discourage such irresponsible behaviour,  we have a very strict refund policy. This way we want to make sure the admission process is fair and balanced.  The Candidate shall claim all the original certificates only after obtaining no dues from all departments

Based on our previous experience, we expect all students in the above list have a good chance to secure admissions. We recommend all seriously interested candidates to be present for counselling without fail to  make use of this opportunity. Vacancy status will be posted on 10-02-2017 and the waitlisted students will be invited for the second round of counselling.


Thank you

We wish you All the best!
