The Right UNN Clearance Documents for Newly Admitted Students [Fully Explained]

This post is for newly admitted UNN students. It will cover UNN clearance documents. In other words, you will be shown all the UNN clearance requirements so that you can start getting them ready. The documents required for UNN clearance are about 16. You will be given files in which you are expected to file your documents. Note, however, that candidates offered provisional admission into various courses in the UNN are expected to regularize their admission by paying their acceptance fee. You are therefore advised to pay your acceptance fee as soon as possible and start getting ready for your clearance.

Documents Required for Clearance of newly admitted UNN students

The clearance is done by the faculty officers at the various faculty offices [you will be informed if there is any change of venue]. It is a verification process aimed at eliminating any form of falsification of documents and ensuring that the candidates who have been offered provisional admission really possess the minimum entry requirements of the school and their prospective courses. Admitted candidates who do not possess ALL the required documents will lose their admission.

You would need to make both the originals and photocopies of the following documents available for your clearance. Go through the list now, find out the ones you already have and begin to source for the ones you don’t have. By so doing, you would reduce the stress that comes with registration rush and hassle.

All the files you were given may be returned to the faculty office though they all have different destinations. One will head to your department, the other to the registry (exams and records). However, the one meant for the faculty will be retained at the faculty office.

If you have questions concerning the documents listed above, quickly use the comments section. Just scroll down and see where to write or comment your questions. On this website, answering your questions is one of our topmost priorities.

Remember there are two letters to write i.e. apart from local government identification letter. One is Letter of Attestation. The other is Letter of Undertaking. These two letters must be included in your files. So it is important that you learn the right format and how to word the letters. See how to write a Letter of Attestation. You can also use this link to check how to write a Letter of Undertaking. In both articles, we included samples to make it easy for you to grab.

Now on the issue of O’level result(s), make sure that you have credit passes in all the subjects required for your course (in not more than two sittings) before you proceed to pay your acceptance fee. This is very important because if you don’t have a complete O’level result for your prospective course, you will not be cleared even though you have paid the huge sum for acceptance.

Finally, ensure that you have all these documents with you as you travel to school on or before the resumption date. That might save you the time and stress of traveling back home to source for them.

Once again, Congratulations on your admission.

It’s still yours sincerely, Henry Divine.

    • @Cynthia.
      There are two kinds of cut-off marks used for Admission in UNN. One is the general school cutoff mark, the other is departmental.

      If a candidate does not score up to the departmental cutoff mark for his prospective course, such candidate would normally not be offered Admission into the course.
      However, if the candidate has ‘connection’ he may be able to secure admission in one of the supplementary lists if, and only if, he scored up to the general school cutoff mark.

      So if you scored below that school cutoff Mark, no GENUINE connection will give you admission in the first place.

      Hope you got my point?

  8. Sorry, I don’t get. So I shouldn’t bother uploading my O Level to my jamb profile? Cos someone said if I don’t upload it, I won’t get admitted. I just want to know sir. Thank you

    • The truth is that those who have been admitted already didn’t upload the O’level stuff except it is going to matter later. You can go to any approved JAMB registration centre to upload it. They may charge you a fee of N1,000 or so.

  9. Is uploading of O’level results necessary even when I uploaded on UNN site while registering for PUTME?

        • It might pose a problem for you. But not to worry. Go to court and swear an affidavit to cover the two documents.

        • Please how long does it take to complete clearance.

        • It depends on a number of factors…

          1. how disposed and fast the officer doing the clearance is.
          2. the number of people (crowd) waiting to be cleared.
          3. the attitude and smartness of the students awaiting clearance…

          and so on.

          It doesn’t take much time though.

          Just have all the required documents and arrange them strictly as required.

  12. It’s only God that will bless you sir. Keep up the good work.
