According to the University, 2,23,081 students registered for VITEEE this year, a significant rise from last year’s total of 2,12,238. The University sees this increase of 10,843 registrations as a reflection of its growing brand reputation among students across the nation. Andhra Pradesh tops the list with 34,068 registrations, followed by Uttar Pradesh with 23,360, Telangana with 19,847, Maharashtra with 19,684, Rajasthan with 16,304 and Tamil Nadu with 16,173 registrations.

At the press conference held to announce the increase in numbers, Dr. G. Vishwanathan, the University Founder and Chancellor, said, “The record placements achieved by the University this year and its thrust to create innovation in academics has propelled the increase in patronage among students, especially from the northern parts of India and non-resident Indians.” He also added that the results of VITEEE 2017 will be declared by the University tentatively on or before April 24, 2017 through its official website.

The counselling for admissions to VIT University will be held between May 10 to 13. Highlighting the University’s commitment towards helping deserving students get high quality education at VIT, Dr. Vishwanathan announced that various special scholarships have been introduced for this purpose and that Board toppers at State and National levels would get 100 percent fee waiver for all four years of their B.Tech. Also, to encourage more students from Tamil Nadu to study at VIT, the university would offer 100 percent waiver in tuition fees and exemption from hostel fee for two Class 12 toppers from each district in the state under the Supporting the Advancement of Rural Students (STARS) scheme.
