PERSONALITY OVER RANKS & GRADES
Our undergraduate admissions and selection process is carefully crafted to enable students to realise their potential for greatness. It is designed to ensure that students from diverse backgrounds, interests, and passions find their distinct place at Atria University. We take pride in being an open, inclusive, and nurturing community. Committed to helping change-makers of tomorrow break new grounds, we aim to ignite their spirit of inquiry.
We recognize and appreciate that you are more than your mark sheet. That’s why admissions to Atria University are not contingent upon cut-offs, pre-requisites, or standardized test scores. Instead, the admissions process is designed to understand your whole profile and the context in which you have thrived in all these years. Passion, rigor, ability to learn, curiosity, teamwork, communication, general awareness, and perseverance are qualities we seek in our students.
INVITING BEYONDERS TO APPLY
We are not looking for class toppers. We are looking for Beyonders. Frontier-thinkers who are interested in the world, who want to learn, and who enjoy the idea of making a positive impact. Instead of depth of knowledge, we are looking for curiosity and willingness to apply rigor to their pursuits. Instead of academic awards, we are looking to find collaborators. Our admissions process seeks relentless future leaders who are fiercely ambitious about building a better world.
A HOLISTIC ADMISSIONS PROCESS
Our process is designed to engage you on multiple levels, giving you the opportunity to share your passions, motivations, and ambition in life. We’re eager to learn more about how you wish to create impact at scale. How do you imagine a radically better future? Do you desire to drive the force for the greater good?
Your application form is you canvas to share your life story. What makes you – You? How you tackle challenges? How you’ve boldly shattered barriers? We want to know about your accomplishments and world views.
STUDENT ENGAGEMENT & INTERACTION DAY (SEID)
The day has been uniquely designed to get to know you through online/offline interactive and collaborative activities. You will have the opportunity to tell us about yourself and get to showcase your unique talents while collaborating on solving a real-world problem. During SEID, you also interact 1:1 with various members of the academic and leadership team. This is also an opportunity for us to share Atria University’s progressive approach to learning with you. And showcase our commitment towards helping you be at the forefront of tomorrow’s challenges.
This phase includes a cumulative evaluation of your performance on the online application and at the SEID. The final decision, either positive, negative, or deferred, is then communicated to you

AN AFFORDABLE EDUCATION
Atria University’s undergraduate admissions process is a needs-blind one wherein information regarding the financial background of applicants is only applied after the student receives an offer of admission. This ensures no selected candidate is denied admission based on their financial situation. And our search for tenacious change-makers remains uninterrupted.
Annual family income is the deciding factor for need-based aid. Students applying for need-based aid (after receiving their admissions decision) are required to submit their financial documents. List of acceptable documents would be shared after admission acceptance.
Excellence Based Aid
Students with exceptional talent and/or achievements will automatically qualify for excellence-based aid. A waiver on tuition fees may vary between 25% to 100%.
