Director, Students Services

You are highly welcome to the Adventist University of West Africa (AUWA) Students Services Window. We are happy to let you know that AUWA is a unique and beautiful institution of higher learning where you or your loved ones can achieve the academic dreams you so much desire. AUWA is a unique place where you or your loved ones will learn and experience a Christian lifestyle that will prepare you for the life here and the life hereafter.

We anticipate that all of our students can  graduate with the best citizenship grade records. The Bible says, “If you listen to this command of the LORD your GOD that I am giving you today, and if you carefully obey them, the LORD will make you the head and not the tail, and you will always be on top and never at the bottom.

We request that you choose AUWA a home away from home.
