Our Admission Policy

Admission to Western Delta University (WDU) is available to all qualifying candidates, regardless of gender, creed, ethnicity, or religion. Candidates seeking admission into Degree Programmes at WDU must apply through the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB). Prospective students may apply through the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), in which case they will be expected to score a minimum cut-off mark for the institution, and be expected to have obtained FIVE (5) Relevant Credits at the Senior School Certificate Examinations conducted by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), the National Examinations Council (NECO), the National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB), or any equivalent, including Mathematics, English Language, and any other three (3) relevant subjects. Applicants may also apply for Direct Admissions if they already have a Degree, a Diploma or an Advance Level certificate.

Prospective Students applying to programmes in the Post Graduate College do not need to apply through the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board.

All undergraduate admissions are processed by the Admissions Office which is responsible for following through with this policy from start to finish and relating same to prospective students.


Students must give the school a written notice applying to defer a their admission. A deferment will be granted if certain conditions stipulated by management are met. All requests for deferment are treated on a case-by-case basis.


To help the school manage our enrolments efficiently, it is absolutely necessary that students give the Admissions Office at least one month written notice of withdrawal. If a one-month notice of withdrawal is not received, the school will not provide references or transcripts for that student. WDU reserves the right to withdraw an already registered student if there is a material breach of the code of conduct for students.

Any admission to WDU granted to prospective students is PROVISIONAL.
