Matriculation is a formal process where a person registers for study at the University and thus becomes a member of the University student community. All students enrolling in NTU academic programmes that lead to the award of a degree must matriculate with the University before commencing their studies.

A person's status as a matriculated student will cease when he completes his study and is conferred his degree, or if he opts to withdraw from his study, or when his candidature is terminated by the University.

Matriculation carries with it the agreement to abide by University rules and regulations, and codes of conduct. This includes payment of any fees required by the University.

Matriculation is done online. Please click the relevant link to follow the procedures:
