Undergraduate Requirements

Students must possess a minimum Jamb score of 180 or JAMB's yearly official cut off score to be considered for admission at AUN.


Also required for admissions consideration are five (5) credits, including English Language and Mathematics, on no more than two SSCE sittings, or an equivalent from a country that requires other types of exit exams or standardized tests. Exceptions, if any, are made on a case-by-case basis.


Candidates seeking admission into the Bachelor of Laws (LLB Honors) program must in addition possess a credit in Literature-in-English.




Having the above scores and grades does not guarantee admission into the University. The above mentioned requirements only qualifies you for admission consideration and not necessarily acceptance. Students' applications are carefully scrutinized, and those accepted are the ones with the highest scores and qualifications in the applicant pool.


JAMB scores, WAEC, NECO, NABTEB, IGCSE etc. scores and SS1, SS2 & SS3 transcripts assess an applicant's overall performance and are the basic factors in the decision.
