The Lagos State University ( LASU ) will admit
3,500 students for the 2017/2018 academic
The university’s Head of Centre for Information,
Press and Public Relations, Mr Adekoya Martins,
made this known in a statement issued in Lagos on Thursday.
Martins said that 36,500 candidates applied for
admission in LASU for the academic session.
He described as false, purported information on
some social media platforms that LASU was set to
admit 5,500 out of 36,500 candidates
“The university management wishes to state
unequivocally that such information is false,
baseless and unfounded.
“Consequently, members of the university
community and the general public are advised to
disregard such information,” he said.
In a bid to ensure transparency and merit-driven
admission process, Lagos state university recently launched an application to automate subsequent
admissions in line with a directive from the National
Universities Commission ( NUC ).
The application will cut out undue interference from individuals in the admission process.
