UNN Clearance Requirements & Documents Needed.
We have continued to receive requests for a comprehensive list of documents required for clearance of 2016/2017 newly admitted students of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN), hence this post.
Firstly, candidates whose names just appeared on the various UNN Supplementary and Direct Entry Admission lists are required to pay admission acceptance fee of 25,000 naira only. The new students are expected to visit the university portal (http://unnportal.unn.edu.ng), select ‘New Students’ and click ‘SignUp Here’. Enter your JAMB Reg. No. to create your profile, then generate and print out an RRR invoice slip, which you will take along to any commercial bank on the Remita platform to pay Acceptance fee. Collect your payment confirmation slip after the bank payment, then return to the university portal again and login to complete the Acceptance Form online and print Admission slip.
The next thing to do is to proceed to the institution for the admission clearance. The clearance involves the screening and official documentation of your personal data by the university. Remember, school resumed since Thursday, 22nd September.
On arrival at the Nsukka campus of the University, new students (also referred to as Freshers or Freshmen) should proceed to Students Affairs building. There, they will be assigned a temporarily accommodation where they will stay until they have completed their registrations. Male freshers are allocated Isa Kaita Hall while Females are allocated Balewa hostel.
The following documents will be asked for by your faculty officer during the admission clearance which takes place daily at the Ekpo Convocation Arena (Ekpo Ref) for all faculties in Nsukka [NB: Students that have their faculties at UNEC (eg. Law, Business, Environmental faculties) are to proceed to Enugu campus for their clearance];

3) Attestation Letter:
This is a short letter written by any of your parents or guardians or any other person in a recognizable position of authority who knows you well enough (e.g. Pastor, Traditional ruler, any office holder etc.). The letter addressed to the registrar of the university should simply attest that you will be of good behaviour and abide by the University rules and regulations.

On getting to the Ekpo convocation arena, identify and approach your faculty officer. He or She will, after going through your O level and other documents, give you more forms /documents to fill in. All your documents should be completed, arranged and returned in a particular format specified by the faculty officer.
You will need at least 3 photocopies of each of the document stated above to complete your registration.
After the clearance, a matriculation number will be assigned to you, which will appear on your online profile on the university portal within few days.
