The School of Correspondence Education (SCE) (Earlier it was an External Branch)
is one of the most important institutions of Karnatak University imparting quality
education to large number of students through Correspondence mode. At present the
students who desire to join the various Graduate and Post Graduate Courses offered
by the institution can get admission by remitting the fees through online of SBI situated through out the Country. Study Materials prepared
by export teachers are made available in 52 centres (colleges) nearer to their place.
Today, thousands of persons like employees working in private and public offices,
house wives, persons serving in Police and Defence forces join the various courses.
Large number of Primary and High School teachers pursue their higher education and
improve their educational qualifications. Many Alumni of the School of Correspondence
Education /External Degree holders have cleared IAS, IPS, KAS and other Competitive
exams and accordingly they have occupied higher position in State/Central Govt.
Since, the students who join the course of the SCE are spread across the country,
the communication with them has been a problem faced. With a view to deal with this
problem from this year, an Official website of the Alumni Association of School
of Correspondence Education has been launched which provides the basic information
about the courses and its functions.
To enable the Alumni of School of Correspondence Education to continue to retain
their bond with us the Alumni Association was formed under guidance of some prominent
Alumni on the occasion of the Golden Jubilee of School of Correspondence Education.
