This was disclosed on Wednesday 30th September 2020, after the Board of Governing Council meeting, followed by an official statement from the NUC instructing Vice-Chancellors of Universities to reopen their respective institutions due to significant decline in the number of people infected with Covid-19 in the country.

Fresh students who are interested in pursuing a degree in Skyline University Nigeria, are expected to resume their application process beginning from 2nd October 2020.
