The Academic Calendar

The Academic Calendar is the University’s official publication containing course descriptions, program and graduation requirements, as well as FUPRE rules, regulations and policies.

The Calendar is intended for the guidance of persons applying or considering applying for admission to or registering for classes at the Federal University of Petroleum Resources and for the guidance of University students and colleges. This Calendar is, in general terms, the manual for how the University intends to proceed each academic year.

Students must be made to understand that the Calendar is sacrosanct and are therefore strongly advised to key into it for smooth running of the new Session. Senate will not under any circumstance, entertain requests for shift in commencement dates scheduled for examinations.

Course registration is not only mandatory but imperative for validation of students’ status

Students should please NOTE that Senate will not entertain any request for re-opening of Portal for registration after the closing date for registration i.e. 8 weeks after resumption.

Students who fail to meet the 8 weeks allowed for registration are advised to print out an automated letter of temporary withdrawal from studies for the session.
