(Based on excerpts from the radio session anchored by Prof. Sylvia Maloma on UNILORIN 89.3 FM)

- UNILORIN 2021/22 applicants admission method will be decided by the University Senate and the Admission Office
- The government won’t provide data for students. The university plans to partner with GLO and maybe other service providers for cheaper data plans for students.
- Microsoft Teams requires the use of UNILORIN student email for activation and the app will be used for virtual learning. For any issue regarding activation, contact email@example.com
- Pending first semester exams will be conducted via CBT while maintaining COVID-19 protocols on-campus and/or virtually. Individual lecturers will decide appropriate method
- You can come on campus for use of campus Wi-Fi. Thought no interaction of any form. Social distancing must be adhered to

- Delay in release of NECO results is what is delaying 2020/21 admission processing. This is based on JAMB directives that NECO result must be used as part of 2020/21 admission
PS: I didn’t get some parts from the radio session due to server error from the radio station. So this is not a complete information.
I hope this helps 😊
