  1. Q9: Can I pay my school fee in installments?
    Answer: Sadly, no. For this year admissions, you are required to pay full.

    my question is, what about returning student, their school fees, can they pay their fees by installments?

  2. I applied for the 2nd choice and supplementary form in Crutech,
    My question goes thus i have seen instances in this year admission that is till ongoing whereby candidates are admitted in their school of choice and even paid acceptance fee and started registration but their caps on their jamb profile is till showing NOT ADMITTED,
    If a candidate in Crutech fall into this category what should be the next approach.
    Pls I need urgent answer

    1. In CRUTECH, acceptance fee payment cannot be made without accepting your admission on JAMB CAPS. And from Q10 you can see that admission must be offered first before you can acccept.

      “NOT ADMITTED” admission status implies that your details haven’t been processed yet by the school… Until this is processed and sent to JAMB your status will remain that way and this will make it impossible to pay acceptance fee in CRUTECH.

      I hope my answer is satisfying enough.

      You can ask further questions for clarification.

  3. kindly assist the fresher’s for this academic session to
    state all the documents needed for registration in school
    before coming to start up their registration proper on this platform.
