NEW DELHI: In a move that will significantly improve access to higher education, over 200 universities can soon offer online degree courses as the University Grants Commission is changing the criteria for their eligibility.
The UGC, according to a source, is finalising a proposal whereby "a univer-sity which fulfils one of the two criteria — Naac 3.01 and above CGPA (Grade A) or among the top 100 NIRF rankings will be allowed to offer online degrees. This will expand the eligibility base to over 230 universi-ties, significantly higher than the previous plan of 100 universities".
