AUN Admission Procedure And Guidelines For Nigerians

This Admission guide will help all interested Nigerian students to understand and know the right procedure to take when applying into the AUN Admission Programme. The American University of Nigeria has a rolling admission policy. The admissions office will admit students prior to the Fall or Spring semesters until the University is at full capacity.

After this, all admitted applicants will be deferred to the next intake. There are two regular intake terms, per academic year, at AUN in accordance with the traditional American academic calendar.

The Fall intake occurs in August and the Spring intake occurs in January. Unless a student indicates otherwise, on his or her application, the student is admitted for the intake that is closest to the time of acceptance. The exception to this is when the University reaches capacity for the term.

Students are notified if their acceptance is deferred to an intake that occurs later than the one for which they applied.

AUN Admission 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 are five (5) creditsincluding 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.

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 applicants' overall performance and are the basic factors in the decision.
