Interested candidates submit their applications using an electronic platform (e-Application). Community Health, Medical Laboratory and Pharmacy are among the most sought after departments in the college.
The application process runs for about three months after which an entrance aptitude test is written sometime in June. Candidates applying for admission into NBTE courses are exempted from writing the entrance exam. Successful candidates at the entrance exam then proceed to the next stage which is a written interview and inspection of credentials.

It is important to note that candidates coming into the college through JAMB can apply for admission up till September.
Candidates who are unsuccessful at the interview stage but who passed the entrance exam, can apply for supplementary admission into other programmes provided there is vacancy in that department.
