The University of Cape Coast (UCC) is a public research university in Ghana that offers quality education. Founded in 1962, the institution has more than 200 programmes that students can choose from based on their dreams and aspirations in life. As the UCC admission list is out and published online, you need to know what steps to take to confirm if you have been offered admission or not.
Prospective students who have previously applied to the University of Cape Coast for admission can now check if they have been admitted or not. While they should not forget that admissions are given to prospective students on merit, applying to the institution does not mean an automatic guarantee of an opportunity to study at the citadel of learning.

However, it is essential to note that students whose applications do not contain the application reference numbers will not be processed, which means that they will forfeit their admission. Also, the chance of getting admitted becomes slimmer if a student did not meet the admission requirements before applying.
