This article is designed to give adequate, correct and proper information on the brief history of IMSU, the general cut off mark slated by JAMB and the various departmental cut off Points in IMSU.

BRIEF HISTORY OF IMO STATE UNIVERSITY, OWERRI (IMSU) 

Imo State University, a public school owned by the Imo State government, located in the heart of Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria, was established through law No. 4 passed by the law makers of Imo State in the state’s House of Assembly in 1981, later amended by Edict 27 of 1985, 1986 and finally by Law No. 2 1992 for relocation, under the leadership/government of Chief Samuel Onunaka Mbakwe who sought for and obtained the approval of the Federal Government for the establishment of Imo State University as a Liberal Studies tertiary institution in the State.

Initially the University was designed as a Multi-Campus Structure with one College to be located in each Senatorial District of the then Imo State with its main campus located at Etiti in the Okigwe Senatorial Zone while the Aba Campus, in Aba Zone, housed the College of Business and Legal Studies. The Multi-Campus structure was phased out because of logistics. The University was then relocated to Okigwe in one Campus.

The first intake of the university’s pioneer students was on October 23rd 1981, where about 392 students were admitted. After the creation of Abia State from the old Imo State alongside 8 other states on the 27th of August 1991 bringing the total number of states to 30, the Uturu campus of Imo State University became Abia State University since the geographical location of the Campus now fell under Abia State’s boundary.

The National Universities Commission (NUC) in 1999/2000 conducted an accreditation exercise after which Imo State University was ranked first among all state universities in Nigeria and 10th overall among all Nigerian universities (both State and Federal universities). However, Imo state university currently ranks 50 in the country. 

Before moving to her permanent school residence along Okigwe road in the heart of Owerri Municipal, credits given to the government of Chief Evan Enwerem, Imo State University was temporarily accommodated within the Campus of Alvan Ikoku Federal College of Education in 1992 and later acquired the vacated Lake Nwaebere campus of the Federal University of Technology Owerri as they relocated to their permanent site in Ihiagwa near Owerri. 

In addition to its regular, full time and part-time programmes, the University caters for the educational needs of the various segments of the Nigerian public through its Sandwich Programme, Institute for Continuing Education Programme (ICEP) and Outreach and Consultancy Services (OCS) Programmes.

The first batch of students to be allocated by JAMB to Imo State University was In February 1993, the University graduated its first batch of students in the 1996/1997 session. The University is now one of the best Universities in Nigeria with highly qualitative academic programmes for the training and character formation of our leaders of tomorrow.

In spite of age, the University have produced graduates with outstanding records occupying various important positions in some national and international establishments. Largely to an extent they’ve lived to defend their motto: Excellence In Service. 

The first Vice Chancellor of the Institution was Professor M. J. C. Echeruo and the current Vice Chancellor is Prof. (Mrs) Victoria Adaobi Obasi.
