The Open University of Nigeria is not like conventional universities where everything is strict. As a matter of fact, flexibility is the watchword of the institution. In NOUN students are required to pay for the course and exam registrations. The price of a course is determined by its credit units.  They are as follows:

 

CREDIT UNITS
 PRICE (NAIRA)
One unit (mostly practicals)
1,000
Two units
2,000
Three units
2,500
Four units (mostly law) 
3,000

 

Simply put, courses are like subjects you are required to take in each semester and they comprise 2 and  3 credit units. Some practicals in the science department are 1 unit while some law courses carry 4 credit units.
The maximum number of units a student can register per semester is 25. It is not compulsory that a student must register all the courses meant for him/her in a semester but it is strongly advisable to try and register all.

 

Let assume that I was meant to register 10 (ten) courses in my 100 level first semester but was able to register 6 may be due to financial reason. This means that I have a deficit of 4 courses in that semester. Now in the second semester, I am required to register 8 plus the initial 4, it becomes 12 (don’t forget that there may be carryover) now it has compounded. The workload will be much if I am able to register all. If I am unable, the deficit continues and as such, I may end up spending more than the years I am supposed to.
Please try as much as possible to avoid this, it is one of the core reasons many students drop out.

 

Courses are registered only once. That is:  if you have carryover on any course you will not be required to re-register it again.

Undergraduates exam fees cost N1,000 (One Thousand Naira only) for each course
The Post-graduates exam fee is N2,000 (Two Thousand Naira only) for each course.

The Ph.D. examination fee is N3,000 (Three Thousand Naira only) per course.

 

If you have carryover you will repay when re-sitting. If you register for an exam and miss it, maybe due to one thing or the other, you will repay whenever you want to sit for it.
Ph.D. re-sitting is N4,000 (Four Thousand Naira only) per course.
