For a candidate to qualify to be a full student of the University, he/she must be registered. Registration is a mandatory function of the University which must be done within the first three (3) weeks from the beginning of the semester by every student. Registration Centres shall be based at the respective Colleges/Institutes/Schools under the supervision of the College/School Registrars who will produce and display detailed registration programmes.
Ensure that you complete all the required registration formalities within the prescribed time in order to avoid disappointments later.
The NAMES to use when registering are those which appear on your Admission Letter of offer and those must be the names which appear on your ‘O'Level, ‘A'Level RESULTS SLIPS/CERTIFICATES and on Diploma/Degree/Transcripts/ Certificates and or Mature Age Certificates.
Some students, on admission to the University have requested to change their names from those used at ‘A'level and ‘O'level. Such students give many reasons for wishing to change their names. Students should be informed that the University does not give permission to change names from those that appear on their ‘O’ and ‘A’Level certificates.

Registration on More Than one Programme
Students should note that the University regulation does not allow one to register in more than one program at the same time.
Students who register for programs under private-sponsorship will not be admitted under government sponsorship in subsequent years.
Double Government- Sponsorship
Double government-sponsorship in Public Universities is illegal. Any student who in one way or the other obtains more than one admission under government sponsorship in Public Universities must immediately report to the Academic Registrar for corrective measures or failure to do so may lead to dismissal from the University and will be required to refund all funds spent on the student while studying at the University under government sponsorship.
