Prospective Management Sciences students must have studied Economics and Mathematics.
Additionally, uploading O’level results on JAMB CAPS is mandatory for all candidates, as no admissions will be processed without it. Candidates awaiting their O’level results are allowed to apply but should make a note of their status.
Procedure for Online Application
Application is a straightforward online process. Candidates are to visit https://portal.ksu.edu.ng/ and make their payments using their ATM debit cards. They must enter relevant details, including examination number, type, date, and scratch card PIN, for their O’level certificates. All information must be previewed and confirmed to be accurate before submission to avoid complications.
Direct Entry Procedure
Candidates who applied for Direct Entry to JAMB and chose PAAU, Anyigba as their first-choice institution are also required to complete the online application form for their screening exercise. The minimum entry grade for Direct Entry candidates is an Upper Credit, ensuring a high standard of entrants through this pathway.

The screening exercise is scheduled to occur from Monday 21st August to Saturday 9th September 2023. Candidates will find their specific screening dates in the slip they receive post-registration. They are required to strictly adhere to these dates.
As part of the application process, candidates must upload all relevant documents on CAPS, as mandated by JAMB, to allow the University access to these details. Without this, the admission process will not proceed.
Lastly, the University maintains a zero-tolerance stance towards admission misconduct or malpractice. Any candidate found guilty of such behaviour will be denied admission, and if they were previously admitted, their admission will be revoked.
