  1. Dear sir/madam,
    I am a graduating student, I made Second Class Upper (4.07), Abeokuta Study Centre. I want to use this opportunity to thank the entire staff of NOUN for all their efforts in ensuring that the school is on a common grid with other Universities in Nigeria and the world at large. I will implore them to keep up with the space always so as to keep the flag flying. I give God all the glory for a successful completion of my course; BSc Criminology and Security Studies.

  2. My name is titilayo, I graduated 2018 but I haven’t collected my certificate,can I do my clearance anytime or during the convocation only?
