This article will answer all these questions for you.

Before now, we used to answer and treat each query individually but since we have been seeing various posts on message boards, forums and blogs asking candidates to come and pay some fees for admission into NDA, we decided to write this. On this site too, we get a lot of comments on our posts about NDA admission and school fees payment. However, we don’t let those comments go live.

NDA School Fees Details

Nigerian Defence Academy School Fees Information to Applicants

Of course you may be required to pay some fees by the NDA during admission processing. If this is ever going to be the case, make sure the information is from the management of Nigerian Defence Academy. Yes, we do post information about their admission here but we have never talked to you about NDA School fees.  If you are going to pay any fees to them, make sure you get the information and account details from NDA websites – www.ndaapplications.net and/or www.nda.edu.ng.

Even after confirming any Nigerian Defence Academy, NDA school fees that should be paid, do not pay into any lecturer or cadet’s account. Make sure you get the Bank Account information from any of the NDA websites stated above. Do not pay into anyone’s account.

Some Scam Messages About NDA Charges

This is very important – there are many forums out there where people claim and portray themselves to be officers in the Nigerian Army or officials at the NDA. We get some of them as comments too but we just delete them. Below are examples of such spam (as well as scam) messages.

Here is another;

Thanks to Major Gen ADEBAYO for helping me to secure my admission into NDA that is Nigeria Defence Academy. When i thought all hope was lost in my side that is when he came along, am urging you today to seek help from him because he is the right man to take you to your favorite destination. He even helped reduce my NDA school fees. Here is his number 09068216438… God bless you sir

Please disregard any information like the ones above. They are out to scam you of your hard-earned money. You shouldn’t pay to anyone. If the NDA will charge you any fee, you will get it from reliable sources from the NDA. You can also call the phone numbers on the NDA website to confirm such fees.

Below you can check the details of the publicly available information on their acceptance fee and tuition:

NDA Acceptance Fee Details

After you get an admission offer from the academy, the authorities will require you to pay a non-refundable acceptance fee. This fee is for cementing your place and telling the admission board that you are accepting the offer of admission. After your admission, you will be informed about the amount to pay as acceptance fee.

The Academy’s Accommodation Fee

Of course, all students have to live at the academy. At the time of publishing this article, the accommodation fee is N45,000 Naira for cadets.

NDA School Fees (Cadets/Undergraduates)

The following the table breakdown of the NDA school fees for every course (programme). Therefore, all new undergraduate students offering these courses for the 2021/2022 academic session should take note.

  1. Accounting – N45,000
  2. Biological Science(s) – N45,000
  3. Chemistry – N45,000
  4. Civil Engineering – N45,000

  12. Mathematics – N45,000
  13. Political Science and Defence Studies – N45,000
  14. History – N45,000

In summary, if you add the accommodation fee to the acceptance fee and the tuition, you will end up with no less than N90,000 (Ninety Thousand Naira only). The total NDA school fees could be more than that depending on the amount they quote for acceptance fee and other charges.

Finally, be watchful and don’t fall victim to these unrepentant scammers!!!
