Admission Requirements & Applicant’s Responsibility: How to Apply

Prospective students

Covenant University aims to provide prospective students with information about our undergraduate programmes, the application, and admission processes. In addition to exploring our website, prospective students can join our mailing list to get information about Covenant University, admissions, and more. Prospective students can also learn about our undergraduate programmes and the application process by physically visiting our Admissions Office on-campus. 

Before you Apply

Prospective students of Covenant University must have obtained the JAMB form, choose Covenant University and must have sat for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), as prescribed in the relevant advertisement for the admission exercise. However, you can do a change of institution on the JAMB portal if Covenant University was not your initial choice.

Next, read through the prospectus and the entry requirements for your programme of interest. Review the details that you meet all requirements both at the O’ Level and the UTME subject combinations.

Applicant’s Responsibility: Application Form

Now you are set to begin your application. You can proceed to the Admissions Portal and create an account, so you can fill in all the details in the application form before you submit. You will be required to make a non-refundable application fee of Ten Thousand Naira Only (N10, 000). This covers the application form, and other administrative charges, the post-UTME screening fee and result verification fee.

Payment can be made using any of the following Debit Card: Verve, Visa and MasterCard. Please note that an Application Number will be generated immediately you made the payment. You are required to click on the payment button on the first page of the form after you have successfully created the account and follow the procedures.

Note: As you proceed in filling out the application form, remember to save the uncompleted application form for completion at a later date. An application can only be accepted after the candidate has paid the prescribed fees.

Applicant’s Responsibility: Supporting Documents

In filling out your application form, you will be required to submit all required supporting documents before submitting your application. Please ensure the right documents are uploaded before you submitting. The Admissions office will not assume the responsibility of informing the applicant about incomplete, wrong, or missing records or documents. In the same vein, the University will not release any document (original, photocopied, or electronic) to the student or a third party after they have been filed as application records. In the case of forged, falsified, or altered application documents, the Admissions office will notify all relevant officials, and submitting such illegal documents will disqualify an applicant for admission.

Note, it is essential to submit all supporting documents for your application on or before the given application lifeline. 

Here is a list of the supporting documents you’ll need to upload for your application to be considered completed:

  • Statement of Purpose

A statement of purpose (not more than 500-words) should be prepared and submitted online with the application. The personal statement should address your academic interests and professional objectives, visions, and goals for life. Please review the prospectus and your programme of interest for more details.

  • Reference Letters

Three official recommendations must accompany your application. These recommendations must be from persons in positions to appraise your potential for undergraduate study at Covenant University. These persons should include the following: 

  • Your Spiritual Leader/Clergy, 
  • Principal /Teacher of your last Secondary school and 
  • An Alumnus of Covenant University (optional).

We require the use of the online recommendation system, which utilizes a secure network and which will automatically email your recommendation providers with instructions for online submission of the recommendation. Also, you will be able to track your recommendations received or not received and follow up with recommenders who still need to submit their appraisals.
