Each university has its own admission process with regard to the application form, registration and documents verification. No lateral entry admissions are allowed under FN/PIO/CIWG quota. Students applying under FN/PIO/CIWG quota must obtain a certificate, to establish equivalency of 10+2/Diploma or Graduation to the Indian High School qualifying examination, from the Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education or Telangana State Board of Technical Education or the concerned university. A separate application form along with appropriate documents needs to be submitted to obtain an equivalency certificate.

To study in various academic programs offered by the university, students need to fill out and submit the application form along with necessary documents and a crossed Demand Draft of Rs. 1000. After the allotment of a seat, the candidate has to obtain a confirmation letter after signing the undertakings and the payment of development and tuition fee.

Below is the eligibility criteria students need to fulfill to apply under CIWG quota:
Pass in Plus Two Examination or any other equivalent examination with minimum aggregate of 60% in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and English as separate subjects. The seat will be allotted to candidates based on marks scored in the above subjects in the qualifying examination.

For applying under FN/PIO/CIWG quota, the student must either be a Foreign National or Person of Indian origin or Overseas Citizenship of India card holder or Children of Indian Workers in Gulf Countries.
“Foreign National” means the Citizen of Countries other than India who is not of Indian origin as defined under OCI/ PIO.
Person of Indian Origin (PIO) - is a citizen of any country other than Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal or Pakistan, if he at any time held an Indian passport, or he or either of his parents or spouse were citizens of India by virtue of the Constitution.
Overseas Citizenship of India - is a pseudo-citizenship scheme established because the constitution of India does not permit full dual citizenship. An OCI card, which is a long-term visa with restrictions on voting rights and government jobs, acts as the proof of OCI and is available to certain PIOs.
CIWG stands for Children of Indian Workers in Gulf Countries. CIWGC is a scheme generated by the Ministry of India for the children of Indian expatriates (Blue Collar Workers) in Gulf countries looking for admissions in India.
