DELSU Admission Requirements 2024/2025: UTME & Direct Entry Admission

DELSU Admission Requirements: Recently aspirants of the prestigious Delta State University (DELSU) have been sending questions concerning the university’s admission process through my email.

One of the most asked questions amongst students is; “What are the requirements for admission into DELSU?”. I actually noticed that many students are asking this question, so I have decided to give a comprehensive answer to the question here.

In this post, I will share with you DELSU admission requirements for UTME and Direct Entry candidates. Like you already know, Direct Entry admission is totally different from UTME admission. In light of that, i will be taking them one after the other.

Note that what I am about to share with you in this article are the most recent DELSU admission requirements (2020). On that note, I enjoin every person wishing to gain admission into DELSU this session to pay great attention to the information contained in this page.

Brief History of Delta State University (DELSU)

History indicates that Delta State University, Abraka was historically a Centre of Education. In the colonial era and for a few years into the post-colonial era, it was founded as the Government Teachers’ Training College. From 1971 to 1985, it was recognised as a College of Education and granted the Nigerian Certificate of Education (N.C.E.).

It began offering degree programmes in 1981 after becoming associated with the University of Benin, Benin City. This continued until 1985 when it changed its name to the Faculty of Education of the then-Bendel State University, which had its main campus located in Ekpoma.
The establishment of an independent Delta State University, Abraka on April 30, 1992, by the then-executive governor of the state, Olorogun Felix Ibru, was made necessary by the August 1991 creation of Edo and Delta State as well as the December 1991 conversion of the main campus of the former Bendel State University, Ekpoma to become Edo State University.

The Faculty of Agriculture, the Faculty of Education, the Faculty of Arts, the Faculty of Science, and the Faculty of the Social Sciences were the five faculties that Delta State University, Abraka first had.
The State Government established a policy in 1995 mandating that the three campuses be dispersed throughout the State’s three senatorial districts. Three campuses—the main campus in Abraka, the Anwai campus in Asaba, and the Oleh campuses—were constructed in light of this strategy.
