List of Approved State Universities in Nigeria (UPDATED)


While registering JAMB UTME or Direct Entry, candidates may want to consider state-owned universities as their first and/or second choice institutions. 

During the change of institutions/courses period, the idea of bringing the state universities up to the first place is very common for those who had earlier considered federal universities during the early registration.

To decide which state universities you should consider, below is the current list of state-owned universities in Nigeria. Admission seekers may consider any of the following degree-awarding institutions in UTME or DE as they are officially approved by NUC.
