How many Admission list does UNIPORT releases?

Based on past precedence, UNIPORT releases 5 (Five) Admission lists every year. They include the following; UNIPORT Merit/first batch admission list, UNIPORT second batch admission list, UNIPORT third batch admission list, UNIPORT fourth batch admission list and finally, UNIPORT direct entry admission list. In all, UNIPORT releases 5 (five) admission list every year.

Like you already know, these admission lists are not released at once by the university. Most times, the university will release her first batch admission list, then other supplementary admission and Direct Entry lists will follow.

It is important to also note that UNIPORT usually publish documents containing the list of admitted aspirants into her different facilities. So, to check UNIPORT admission list, you can either download the admission list published by the university or go through JAMB CAPS to check your admission status.

Will UNIPORT release another admission list this session?

The answer is Yes! If UNIPORT has released her merit/first batch admission list already, the university is definitely going to release more admission list. Nonetheless, if the university has released all the list i mentioned above, then there is probably not going to another admission list.

Just like I have already explained, the university releases 5 (five) admission list every year. So, if the five has already been released then the university is probably not going to release another admission list for the year.

Note: Sometimes, UNIPORT does not release up to five admission lists. The university may just release few supplementary list and that will be all.

More information about UNIPORT admission list

1. UNIPORT merit/first batch admission list

This is usually the first admission list that is released by the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT). It is apparently the merit admission list of the university. This means that, students who are admitted into this list are students who actually reached the required admission requirements and cutoff mark of the university.

According to my research, UNIPORT merit admission list is always released in the 9th or 10th month of every year (I.e September/October). After this list is released, all newly admitted students of the University of Port Harcourt will be required to accept their admission in JAMB CAPS and finally come over to the university for final clearance.

2. UNIPORT second, third and fourth batch admission list

These are the supplementary admission list of the University of Port Harcourt. They are not released together with the merit list because students who are admitted through this list are does that didn’t really meet the required cutoff marks of the university. However, because of some reasons the university decides to admit them.

UNIPORT second, third and fourth batch admission list are released together. But it usually takes some weeks or even a month, after merit list has been released, before they will be released.
