First thing first, congratulations on your admission into UNN. Welcome to the Den a place to restore the dignity of man.

Bikonu, remember to invite me to your matriculation ceremony. I would not want to miss it for anything.

In this post, I have also included necessary information about payment procedures.

Note: Do not make any payment like school fees or acceptance fee online using your ATM card.

All payments must be at the bank using your generated Remita RRR number.

You will submit the teller receipt during your final year clearance. That is the reason why you must not make payments online.

If you have any question, do let me know in the comment box. I would respond to you as soon as possible.

The first section of this post covers clearance procedures for Medical students. First year clearance for College of Medicine students is a little bit different. It is because their Faculties is not in Nsukka campus.

The first year clearance is the first point of action for new students in the Den. The process can be stressful for Medical students.

As you may be aware, the College of Medicine is not in Nsukka campus. The first question on your mind right now is where then do medical students do their clearance.

First year clearance for Medical students takes place in Nsukka Campus at Ekpo Ref. It runs here for the first few weeks of resumption.

Students who resume late would go to UNEC Enugu Campus or Ituku Ozalla for their clearance.

The Faculty Officers in the College of Medicine spend about two weeks in Nsukka campus. After this time frame, they would return to UNEC or Ituku-Ozalla.

It is why it is advisable to resume on time so you would be able to do your first year clearance in Nsukka campus.

UNN Clearance Procedure for Admitted Students

The UNN first year clearance is in two stages.

You will get your documents after verification by your Faculty officer. Nobody will take away your original O’level results, birth certificate, etc.

Submission of Student Files

After the first stage, you will get three UNN file folders containing different forms.

It is this stage you must be careful because any mistake here would affect you in your final year clearance.

Fill the forms in block letters. Don’t be in a hurry to fill the forms and end up with mistakes. Any column you don’t understand, ask questions.

Make sure your handwriting is legible. It is your permanent University record we are talking about here.

    • No, you will not be rejected.

      I don’t know which of the name is correct.

      Assuming the mistake is with the JAMB. You must apply for correction of name on the JAMB portal.

    • No, it is not possible.

      You will make use of your JAMB passport on your school portal throughout your stay in UNN.
