Know the University
By now there are about 245 Universities and National Institutions, deemed as Universities, in India. Jadavpur is one of them yet it is different in its history, tradition and culture. Jadavpur became a statutory University only on December 24, 1955. But the story began much earlier, under very different and unique circumstances. Bengal, the birthplace of the national liberation movement, was planned to be partitioned in 1905 by the British rulers. Bengal revolted and there was an unprecedented popular upsurge in the form of the "Swadeshi Movement ". In the wake of this movement, which had grown to national poportions, came into being the National Council of Education, Bengal in 1906, "to impart education literary and scientific as well as technical and professional on national lines and exclusively under national control". Hence, Jadavpur University is one of the earliest trademarks of constructive swadeshi.

It is primarily a Unitary University having only four affiliated colleges, viz., Smt. Jawahari Debi Birla Institute of Home Science and Jadavpur Vidyapith College of Education, Institute of Business Management under the National Council of Education, Bengal and Marine Engineering & Research Institute, Calcutta. Due to the tradition and achievements, this University has been recognised as one of the leading Universities of India.

Migration Certificate
Students joining courses from any other University are required to produce a migration certificate from that University for pursuing studies here. The certificate is not insisted upon while granting admission here, but the admission is provisional. A student shall have to produce a MIGRATION CERTIFICATE within four months from the date of admission. It is a must before they are registered as full student here and permitted to appear in the first semester/annual examination. One can be debarred from appearing in any University Examination here unless his/her name is registered at this university on the production of a migration certificate. Remember that getting a migrating certificate is a time consuming affair and you must apply to the University concerned through the College where you have studied last.

A candidate who has passed his/her last examination from a University other than Jadavpur University shall have to produce a migration certificate and pay the requisite Registration fee to the Jadavpur University within four months from the date of admission failing which his/her admission to any course under Jadavpur Universities is liable to be cancelled.
