The YCMOU has been established by an Act (XX of 1989) of the Maharashtra State Legislature on 1 July 1989 and has been recognized under section 12(B) of the UGC Act 1956. The UGC has recognized the degrees and diplomas awarded by state open universities like YCMOU to be on par with degrees and diplomas awarded by any other traditional university in the similar subject areas. The Government of Maharashtra has also mentioned the qualifications earned at the YCMOU to be acceptable under the recruitment and promotion rules. The qualifications awarded by the YCMOU are recognized to be on par with the qualification of the similar level (UG degree, PG degree, diploma, etc) of similar subject areas after due consideration of the entry qualification, duration of the program and course contents by other traditional universities. The university being an autonomous body has liberty to design, implement and award qualifications which may not be similar to the design, methodologies and content of other traditional universities or statutory Boards or Councils at national or state levels. The programs designed by the university are as per the guidelines issued by the University Grants Commission from time to time. The qualifications awarded by the university in respect of such programs are not designed to be equivalent to the diplomas awarded by other universities or Boards in formal sense. The university will not be issuing any certificate or letter to that effect to any students or candidates. The candidates are advised to take informed decisions in this regard.

Every precaution is taken at all programme stages from ‘Curriculum Design’ to ‘Examination’, to ensure that the standards and quality of education and examinations are preserved.
