DLI Student Portal is the official portal for DLI students to get vital information and updates. The genesis of Distance Education is coincident with the founding of the University itself in 1962.

It is recalled that part of the primary objective of the University at inception and as enunciated in the Ashby Commission, was: the provision of facilities for part-time studies in such fields as Business Studies, Accounting, Law, and Education through Correspondence and Distance Learning techniques.

Correspondence and Open Studies Unit (COSU)

This then was the genesis of the Distance learning Institute (DLI), the fact that it had previously gone through different cognomens notwithstanding. It was in the actualization of this objective that a Unit, the Correspondence and Open Studies Unit (COSU), was established in 1973.

COSU in turn was to transform, a decade later in 1983 into the Correspondence and Open Studies Institute (COSIT), with the granting of the latter with some measure of autonomy and enhanced scope of operations.

Consistent with global advances in Open Studies and in particular Distance learning mode of study, the Senate of the University in 1997, while re-affirming the enhanced status and autonomy of COSIT, effected some re-structuring and streamlining in the general modus operandi of the Institute.

These various changes delineated above were, among others, aimed at effecting the necessary streamline and restructuring towards achieving the pure Distance learning mode of education delivery in all its ramifications.

In keeping therefore with these various restructuring measures, and to reflect the Distance learning philosophy, the name COSIT had to be changed to DLI (The Distance learning Institute).

Upgrade to College Status

DLI, as now constituted with enhanced status as that of a College in the University, has its own Management Board and its own Academic Board.

It is empowered to formulate her own policies, employ her own staff and be responsible for academic programs, examinations as well as supervise her day-to-day affairs and generate funds for her running costs.
