      The entrance exam is a basic exam on your subject combination.

      As long as you possess the minimum 0’level and other requirements, you get admitted to the program.

      You will write a screening test for JUPEB admission.

      I can assure you that you will get admission to the program after buying and submitting the form online.

  5. Sir, pls thank you for this post, I was’t aware till now that unn has started their clearance and had finished it. Pls what can I do, am burning here. Thank you

    • Hello, Chris

      First of all, the clearance for the first-year student is still ongoing.

      You will have to meet your Faculty officer at your Faculty to do your clearance.

      The deadline for clearance is the day before your matriculation ceremony.

    • Chidimma,

      The registration of freshmen commences on Monday,2nd August and lasts till Friday, 6th August 2021.

    • Kachi,

      The deadline for payment for UNN school fees is a day before the matriculation ceremony.

      It is better to complete your registration at least one month after the commencement of lectures.

      So, don’t panic if you cannot meet up for the payment.

      You can attend lectures pending when you can pay your school fees.

    • Favour,

      The hostel portal is open.

      You have to keep trying to get a hostel both during the day and at night.

      It is the process of getting a hostel in UNN if you miss the first chance.

  6. Please I have paid my school fees in the bank, but still try to apply for hostel it keeps telling me I have not paid, what do I do

    • Uju,

      See what you have to do after paying your school fees a the bank.

      1. Go to UNN Portal

      2. Sign in to your school portal

      3. Click SCHOOL FEES. Then select Pay School fees.

      4. Enter your school fees RRR number.

      5. Click on Pay.

      6. Go back to the UNN hostel portal to get a bedspace.

    • I would advise that you wait for further information.

      Clearance will begin after the start of hostel allocation for first-year students.

      Only students who stay off-campus can go to Nsukka as the event unfolds.
