This is to inform all the returning students of the University of
Ilorin (UNILORIN), that the management has released the registration
procedure for the 2018/2019 academic year.
Latest Update: We wish to bring to your notice that the Undergraduate portal for returning students has once again been open for registration.
This is sequel to our plea with the management for another extension, judging by the number of calls we received.
The past few days have been loaded with phone calls from various
quarters which had one or two issues concerning the portal, and just
like we promised most of you, the portal has now been opened for late
We however wish to urge everyone to attend to the
registration on time. It was difficult getting this done, and it may be
totally impossible to get another one.
Again, this may be the FINAL registration opportunity.
Kindly attend to it on time.
hereby reiterate our unflinching commitment and selfless services
towards the welfare of our teeming members, while we also urge our
distinguished members to renew their confidences, cooperation and always
shower support for the administration.
