The University admits students in August and February in the course of each Academic year, which runs from August to June. Admissions are currently ongoing for the August 2013 in-take for all courses offered in the six Schools of the University.

Students have the option of enrolling for Day, Evening or Weekend sessions. Alternatively, one may prefer to study under the Distance Learning programme.  Day courses are conducted from 7.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. from Monday to Friday. Evening courses are held from 5.00 p.m. to 9.00 p.m. from Monday to Friday. Weekend courses are conducted on Saturday and Sunday from 7.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. Distance Learning, just like the Weekend programme, is tailored for the convenience of employed students who have to keep at their jobs. These study arrangements provide sufficient flexibility to meet student needs.

Fees and administrative costs at Nkumba University are competitive compared to other institutions or universities offering related courses or programmes.
