Mission Statement of the Department:
We serve the University by assisting the Registrar to handle admission matters of freshmen and the verification of entry results of all categories of students in the University.
Brief History, Past and Current Leadership of the Department
The Admission Office was one of the first Units of the Registry existing in 1982/83 session at the inception of the University. It was then under the direct supervision of the Office of the Registrar.
With the expansion of the Registry in 1985/86, the Admission Office became a Unit operated under the Academic Affairs Division of the Registry. At that time, the Academic Affairs Division consisted of the following Units: Academic Affairs Unit, Admission Office and the Examination and Records Units. The Academic Affairs Division was headed by a Senior Assistant Registrar – Mrs. R.A. Faluyi (She retired as a Deputy Registrar), while the other Administrative Officers like Mr. P.O. Aliu and Mr. S.B. Akinsipe assist in the Units and report to the Registrar through the Divisional head.
Later on, the Admission Office was carved out as a separate Division of the Registry with Chief B.A. Adeoya as the Deputy Registrar (Admissions). With further promotions, transfer of officers and restructuring of Registry, the baton was passed to Mrs C.A. Ogunsakin, a Principal Assistant Registrar.
