The Centre for Distance and Online Education (CDOE) is an integral part of the University (established under Section 2(13), Section 7(c), Section 8(n), Section 21(3)) of the University Act). Adopting flexible and innovative methods of education to ensure 'independent learning' to anyone, anytime and anywhere, the Centre offers programs of the study that are customized to meet the learning requirements of knowledge seekers as well as to ensure that they learn at their own pace and convenience.

All these people can get an opportunity to derive the benefits of education through distance mode. The cost of Distance education is preferably low so that educationally backward sections can take advantage of University's programs.
