  7. A bit of nervousness, anxiety,and of course, one’s faith seems to hang in the balance. What am trying to say is this. while some applicants whose dept. are listed seems to know their faith, many of the applicants whose dept are not yet listed are developing HBP. Because, they have waited so long for the PG admission list. Let them upload all these admission list . For example, dept like, econs, mass com, etc, are yet to be listed. While others already listed are talking of printing their admission letters, paying their schl fees, deferring their admission. Whaoooo! While, applicants whose dept are not yet listed are developing HBP. Uncle Timo pls find out what is really happening and feed your publics back as soon as possible. hAPPY NEW YEAR!

    • Hi Tim,
      Please I need help.
      I applied for MBA 13/14 and when the admission list came out my name was not on it so I assumed I wasn’t offered admission and I stopped checking the portal.
      On Friday 09 Jan I got a text from unilag that. I should go register and get docket……that made me go to the student portal and I realised I was actually offered the admission because my admission letter was there.
      Please I don’t want to lose the admission,is it still possible I defer to 14/15? If yes,is it just the Obligatory fees of N61,500 am to pay or will I also pay tuition fees before I can defer?
      Please I really need your respose, thanks.

      • Your admission is 2013/2014 and not 2014/2015 so do not pay any obligatory fees yet.

        My advise is go straight to Unilag school of postgraduate studies and explain yourself to them. They will tell you exactly what to do.

        All the best!

  17. Hello Tim, Thanks for all ur help.. My name came out in Unilag’s admission list for MSC Masscom. But i want to defer my admission. Ive paid the obligatory fee but each time i try to open the Deferment Link, it keeps saying Please pay ‘PG Tuition Fee (FT)’ before applying for deferment. What should i do. I thought it was just Obligatory fee that was needed for Deferring admission. Pls reply

    • If the link is not going through then maybe you should hold for sometime and then try again. It maybe that your payment have not been updated.

      You can also visit the school of postgraduate studies to lay complains. They might have the hard deferment application form in the office.

      • Hi Timothy, I can’t defer online cos it’s saying I should pay tuition fee after paying obl fee, is it possible to get d form in school? Or would it be d same thing ? Do I hav to pay tuition fee before deferring ? Pls help a sister out. U doin a great job btw.

    • Hi Thelma , wer u able to defer ?

  18. gud evnin,pls wld hard copy of sealed transcript be accepted by hand frm student?

  19. According to what you wrote here we should be able to apply for deferment after paying only the obligatory fee. That is not the case though, I already paid the obligatory fee but it says please pay PG tuition fee before applying for deferment.

  20. Good day Tim,

    Have been trying to login to my portal but I can’t access it, says password/username missmatch and am very sure am using the correct password and application number. Kindly let me know which appropriate unit can I complain so I can access my admission status.

    Please, kindly help confirm if the admission in the computer science unit for mpill/phd is out. That is what I applied for.


    • I will advise that you first visit any cyber cafe inside Unilag at the faculty of education, those guys know their way around Unilag website.

      If it still the same, visit school of postgraduate studies in same faculty of education to lay complains.

  21. Please how many courses am I expected to offer and what is the credit load for Msc economics part time

  22. Pls is dere gonna b a supplementary list 4 2014/2015 session

  23. Hello, please I would like to find out the guide I should follow for resuming from deferment … My course is masters in English literature full time. Thanks
