UNN calculates admission eligibility using a combined score derived from two key assessments:

1. JAMB Score: Applicants are advised to target a score ranging from 280 to 330 to maximize their chances. However, the university maintains a general cut-off of 160 for all courses.

2. Post-UTME Score: This score is equally crucial as it complements the JAMB score in determining the final aggregate used for admission consideration.

Beyond academic scores, UNN takes into account various factors such as:

- Geographic location: Candidates from neighboring states may benefit from slight advantages.

- Educational background: Students from states with fewer educational opportunities are also considered under different criteria.

Special Considerations for ELDS and Catchment Areas:

The university recognizes states categorized as Educationally Less Developed States (ELDS) and Catchment Areas, where slightly lower cut-off scores may apply. Examples from previous years include scores for states like Akwa Ibom, Edo, Ebonyi, Rivers, Kogi, Benue, and Delta.
