  • Good day guys, please does anyone have genuine information as regards resumption and registration in school for 2017-2018 session because the silence and suspense is just too alarming or could it be that the school is indeed slow with their academic activities. Please do well by giving us that are far from the state information to know the next line of action. Thanks in anticipation

    • To my knowledge, those who have gotten the admission have started their registration but their lectures hasn’t started. That’s all i know

    • Be patient. More lists are coming out and be rest assured your name would be included provided you met the criteria for postgraduate admission. E.g CGPA of 3.5, have your NYSC discharge cert. Be sure that your transcript got to the appropriate persons as there has been reported cases of missing transcript. So do well to go to school and confirm that the secretary, PG school received your transcript. You can drop your contact if you want to be added to UNN PG students WhatsApp group.
