How to Apply for AFIT Admission.

For a successful application, direct entry candidates are expected to complete two basic steps below:

  • Payment via e-Bills Pay.
  • On-line Registration.

Candidates should visit any branch of commercial banks, request for Air Force Institute of Technology on e-Bills Pay and specify the appropriate programme (Pre-HND, HND or PGD) to make payment. Pre-HND and HND/PGD candidates are to pay N4, 000.00 and N5, 000.00 respectively with the required bank charges. After payment, the bank teller will give a printout of the Session ID, which would be required to proceed with the online registration.

Having been assigned a Session ID by the bank, candidates should visit AFIT website ( and click on the ‘Direct Entry Registration’ link. Insert the Session ID obtained from the bank, email, phone number, upload your passport and select the course applicable to you (Pre-HND, HND or PGD), click submit. After the display of “record inserted correctly” message, click the “resume registration” button to continue the application.

On the registration form, candidates should fill in their bio-data and other relevant information (post-secondary information, employment history) as required on the page and continue. (Note: The candidate’s phone number is his/her identity on the portal. Therefore, it is important to provide a valid phone number).Thereafter, candidates should upload the necessary documents (e.g. degree/ND certificates and passport photograph) as required on the page. Proceed further to print your Photo Card for a successful application. The Photo Card contains candidates’ basic identity information and would be required for confirmation of application for admission into the Institute.

All applications for admission will close on Friday 15 August 2018. Successful candidates would be contacted via SMS and also published on the Institute’s website at the appropriate time.
