In our previous article, one of our admins posted a detailed guideline on the National Open University of Nigeria, NOUN Orientation For New Intake (Freshers). You can take a look at the article here.
In today’s post, I will be sharing some tips and information on NOUN Orientation for Newly Admitted Students and what you should know about the NOUN Orientation / online felicitation.
Firstly, you should know that it’s your duty to perform all registrations by yourself using any means necessary NOT the school’s responsibility. Once you’re given matriculation number (Matric Number) you’re on your own.
However, I’ve provided simple tutorial videos on all activities in NOUN. So, if you’re ready to learn new things and adapt quickly, I’ve got your back at least. Daily YOUTUBE data subscription with MTN should be ₦100 or less. Night subscription is ₦50 with which you could wake up around 3am and watch videos until 6am. Please find out the cost on other telcos using google search at https://google.com it’s easy to know what you don’t these days.
You may also pay someone who has watched the videos to perform some of the required activities on your behalf. Trying to do such illegally (e.g. buy exams answers before exam time, or change the score of your exams etc) usually results to scam which you cannot do anything about because you paid the person to commit a crime but he/she failed.
For the award of a Bachelor’s Degree from 100L, you must run your programme within a minimum of eight (8) semesters (4years) or maximum of sixteen (16) semesters (8years).
For direct entry, students must obtain a minimum TCE of 90-credit units depending on your programme, a minimum of six (6) semesters (3 years) or maximum of twelve (12) semesters (6 years), excluding the General Studies (GST) Courses.
- The maximum semesters start counting from the year you were admitted, if you abandoned your studies for too many semesters, you may not be awarded a degree certificate.
- Students are required to pass at least one elective course in a semester or at least 15 total credit unit. They must also pass 18 CU (credit units) of GST Courses as specified by the Senate.
