Both are a 4-yr course.Forget the codes.However, we were slow last yr but if they migrate to the ultimate platform, one can do ones' 4-yr major in 2 and half yrs. I will be in yr2 next April but that wld have been the start of my yr3.
Re: Duration For Open University by jmoore(m): 1:21pm On Mar 05, 2011

@ferdiii, what do you mean by ultimate platform?

It means that is what they actually wanna achieve.Where everyone goes at their own pace. Like I can decide not to honor a break and move on and do my exams when am ready not minding my course mates. They still allow application? They ought to have closed on 25 February 2011.We will start next session April 11,2011.The problem is these inconsistencies.
Re: Duration For Open University by jmoore(m): 11:13pm On Mar 05, 2011
ok, i like the ultimate stuff so i can be through in 3 years. i saw 25th as closing date but i called them to be sure and they told me it still on so i applied quickly

Re: Duration For Open University by jmoore(m): 8:14pm On Mar 06, 2011
Actually I submitted 8 subjects, let them choose the best of five out of them.

As long as 5 out of 8 cover for the major you applied.Nothing, just wait for the admission decision. I thought you called Lagos headquarters. Don't bother about it though.

I guess 3 unit should be N2,000 not sure because I have not taken any 3 unit course. I will next semester.

No more etranzact, go to Zenith or any other listed banks and pay your fees.NOUN is changing everything every week, looking for money.It is getting annoying. I paid N23,500, my courses I have paid up to N21,500 and exams I paid N13,000 (still in my e-wallet) for 13 courses. Now they have set aside JAMB regularization fee (N3,000) and Result verification fee (N5,000) totaling N8,000 till one's graduation year. Some people in their second semester are being harassed with money, they ought to pay for their courses and exams only.Now NOUN is embarrassing themselves, they will pay reg.fee of N2,500 and others totaling N15,500 before courses and exams fees.Exam fee is N1,000 irrespective of the credit unit. So that means we register (N2,500) for every semester not once in a session any more. Again NOUN has changed the amount for course reg. For Undergra:1unit=N1,500, 2units=N2,000 and 3Units=N2,500.They were 1Unit=N1,000, 2units=N1,500 and 3Units=N2,500 at the old portal and earlier 1unit=N2,000, 2Units=N2,000 and 3Units=N2,500 in the new portal.They are confused and changing the units.Earlier I registered a 3 unit course for N2,500 and now it is 2 Unit=N2,000.

After paying the fees, what else should I do?

the fees I listed above. cos I want to pay the fees next week before I start paying for course registration fees.


Also how do you come about the 23,500 you paid. New students (for undergraduate programmes) are to pay 22,500 excluding the jamb and result verification fee.

Include JAMB Regul and Resul Veri and add up with N15,500.But you guys will hav to pay both on the final yr. Yeah after paying, use the PIN to load ur e-wallet and that is if NOUN has reprogramed to take that amount from new students. It was N30,500 before.
Re: Duration For Open University by jmoore(m): 9:01pm On May 22, 2011
Thanks! you are in your final year, thats why you are paying for jamb and result verification fee?


is it the bank that will give me the pin after payment?

Am in my second year.May be they figured out folks were complaining about too much money and I don't have to pay again.Both are ONE OFFs.Yes the bank will give the page that contains everything, but you have to got with ur mat no.Ur interest shld be on the PIN, and the subsequent payment your interest shld be on the transaction ref.

Go to Zenith, their acct number is 8080100669. If you have created ur new portal with photo, mat number, just use the transaction ref and load it on ur e-wallet, they will take away N15,500 and leave the rest as your balance.Ask the bank when to use the PIN, I think it is when you don't have ur mat. numba yet.I don't know the max of credit units. I'd like to find out soon because I want to cut off a year or a semester. That,will be clearer when am in yr3. But I will ask. you can e-mail me at [b]ferdimako@gmail.com [/b]to avoid all these dr this, engr that. However other legal viewers will be cut off from the sequence.

Still ask them if one can take future courses with the hope to finishing earlier. I do take some left-out courses but it seems normal. I will still ask someone myself.
