Successful candidates will get a message on the course they are being offered. To print your Admission Notification, you are expected to pay the sum of N4,500.00 through REMITA via the University Portal.

ICT Unit will collect and update all corrected students information when approved by the Registrar.
CHANGE YOUR PASS WORD:
It is advisable for students to change their password from the default password to a customized password and protect it against hackers for security reasons. It is obligatory on you to protect your password. Do not allow your password to be used by another person other than yourself.
UPLOAD PASSPORT PHOTOGRAPH:
Upload your passport photograph and save it with your Matriculation Number with the extension .JPG. The size should be as stipulated on the portal (100×100 pixels, not more than 100kbytes) .This is very important because your payment receipts will not be valid without your passport photograph.
PAY SCHOOL FEES:
Students can pay school fees and other incidental charges on the portal. They can also print receipts of all payments. NOTE that using the suggested modes of payment on our portal is to safeguard your funds and to avoid loss of money during payment transactions.

A period of one week from the date of approval shall be given to students whose applications have been approved to make payment. All booked spaces not paid for within one week of booking shall be revoked.

EVIDENCE OF PAYMENT OF ACCOMMODATION:
Successful students that have been allocated hostel accommodation should Print Bed Space Booking Approval, pay Hostel Accommodation Fee and print evidence of payment.
