Abstract:     
This study explains how a preparatory course helps the rural drop-outs to qualify themselves to pursue graduate program through distant education. It also explains how mobile learning helps them to enhance their capacity in learning despite their rural background and other disadvantages. In India nearly half of the students enrolled in the schools dropped out and the pursuance of higher education is very low when compared with developed countries. India remains a largest higher education sector next only to USA and China. This study finds a significant increase in their learning capacity and mobile learning seems to be a viable alternative where conventional system could not reach the rural drop-outs. This paper explains these issues out of the study conducted among the distant learners of Vinayaka Missions University located at Salem in India.
