SSU Department of Biology Admission Requirement

This article is designed to help students who wish to study Biology under the Faculty of Sciences in Sokoto State University as it is very important for all candidates who wish to apply for any of the courses offered in SSU  to  carefully confirm and see if the course they Selected is offered in the institution before registering for JAMB.

Arising from the insatiable quest of the people of the state for education and excellence, the idea of establishing the Sokoto State University was conceived by the then Sokoto State Governor Aliyu Wamakko when he established the Sokoto State University Implementation Committee in 2008. The committee was charged with the responsibility of:

Planning for the structure and facilities for the effective running of the universityseeking for and obtaining approval from the Federal Government for Sokoto state to run its own university aside, Usmanu Danfodiyo University, which is Federal Government owned and in which the indigenes of the state were marginally placed over the years arising from the Federal Character Principle; and

establishing the Sokoto State University School of Developmental Studies with the sole aim of preparing students, a one-year pre-degree programme before enrolling into the university.

The approval was granted in 2009
