A pass at the merit level in a relevant diploma programme may be accepted and passes in at least two major relevant subjects in the NCE is also accepted for Direct Entry admission.



Fresh students admitted into the university to pursue a degree are required to matriculate. The student is regarded as a bonafide student of the University once the matriculation is done.
