Undergraduate admissions are made on the marks and ranks obtained by the candidates in JEE MAIN through central counseling, which is conducted by the competency authority,[7][8] i.e., Sundernagar. 85% of total seats are reserved for Himachal bona fide candidates and 15% to all-India quota.

The college admits 300 students with 60 students in each school. In addition to that 10% seats in each school are allotted to lateral entry students and 5% over and above the sanctioned intake under the tuition fee waiver scheme.

There are two rounds of subsequent counseling. If the seats still fall vacant after the two rounds, they are filled on the basis of marks obtained in 10+2 or any equivalent examination, according to the 200 marks roster as approved by the Himachal Pradesh government. Lateral entry seats are filled on merit and candidates with a diploma in requisite field or an BS degree are eligible for these seats.
