IMPORTANT NOTE: Interested applicants should know that Admission into all Nigerian universities, YSU inclusive, is strictly regulated by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), through the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS).

This is to say, that even if a candidate has acquired the required YSU cut off marks, the University management would still be constrained to admit the applicant, if the UTME subject combinations do not match his/her programme of choice, as the admission cannot, eventually, be approved by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

Requirement 4: Direct entry candidates/applicants are required to have gotten the minimum ‘A’ Level qualification/grade which are relevant to his/her chosen programme.

Requirement 5: Applicants (UTME and DE) are required and must have a minimum of five (5) relevant passes at credit level, including English and Mathematics in any of the following:

  • Senior Secondary School Certificate (SSCE),
  • National Examination Council (NECO),
  • National Business and Technical Education Board (NABTEB),
  • National Board for Arabic and Islamic Studies (NBAIS) in not more than two (2) sittings;

Requirement 6: Candidate must participate in the YSU Post UTME screening exercise within the prescribed dates set for the screening.

Requirement 7: The school admission board requires all candidates seeking admission to upload his/her ‘O’ Level and ‘A’ Level result(s), (O’level for UTME/ A’Level for DE) on the JAMB Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) platform, before the PostUTME screening/admission list.

DISCLAIMER ON ADMISSION OF ELIGIBLE CANDIDATES:

Candidates should note that even if they meet with the above requirements, the University which is guided by its internal policy for screening and ascertaining the merit of all applications, reserves 100% right to admit candidates into the tertiary institution based on the availability of admission spaces, where admissions quota assigned on the basis of states and local governments of origin.
