The University is a state-owned university that was founded and licensed by the National Universities Council NUC in 2013. 

It is quite true that the university was founded in 2013, but it was in June 2010, that a former Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC), for the sake of achieving the goal of establishing the Sule Lamido University, set up a 9–Member Technical Committee that was chaired by Prof. Munzali Jibril, of the then State Executive Council to oversee the entire project of establishing the institution.

From its inception, the University started with a four-phased yet five-year development plan, and it was also structured as an entrepreneurial-orientated institution, that is ICT driven.

The committee was chaired by Prof. Haruna Wakili, to manage the institution. The Committee served as the University’s Management until the Governing Council was juxtaposed to become one and the same body.

What is School Fee?

The term school fee is used to refer to a prescribed fee levied on a student of a particular institution of learning, that has government approval to operate. The institution of learning could be a higher institution or a primary or secondary school. The fees paid by each student of any school are very important because the management of the school will use such to cater to the development of the school.

The Meaning of Acceptance Fee

An acceptance fee is a fee paid by a student to a higher institution to indicate that such student has accepted the admission offer given to the student.

However, any student that fails to pay his or her acceptance fee has automatically forfeited the admission offer for the year.
