WELCOME TO ADMISSIONS UNIT
The Admissions Unit of the Registry Department implements the decisions of the University Management as they affect admission of candidates into undergraduate programmes of the University. In doing this, the Unit ensures that students’ credentials are authentic and that they satisfy the Departmental as well as basic University entry requirements. This Unit in one way or the other manages the students’ progress in the University in collaboration with other arms of the Registry, especially the Students’ Records Unit, the Examinations Unit and the Faculties until graduation.
The cardinal roles of the Admissions Unit are captured in the following work-flows:
ADMISSIONS OF CANDIDATES (WORK FLOW)
- Candidates to apply to JAMB for online registration, including biometric capturing to qualify candidate to sit for UTME (Applications normally starts around November/December). All candidates must upload their O/Level Results to JAMB Portal to qualify to be considered for admission.
- Conduct of UTME throughout the country by JAMB in approved CBT Centres (Examinations last for about three weeks).
- Release of UTME results by JAMB and making it accessible to candidates to print Result Slips.

- Sitting for the Post UTME at the designated centre and time as would be communicated to the candidates by the University and also published in the UNN website.

- Conduct of the meeting of the Committee of Deans where Primary (Merit) admissions from various faculties would be considered and approved.

- Such candidates should apply online in the UNN Portal and complete the required forms after carefully studying the requirements and paying the application/processing fee.

Transcripts of the candidates from their current institution should also be forwarded to the Registrar.
