Applicants who are citizens of the Republic of Azerbaijan who want to be admitted to the university must take part in the entrance exams conducted by the State Examination Center.

For this, applicants must register online on the portal.edu.az platform and after entering the created cabinet, select the "Student registration for higher and secondary educational institutions" service from the list of services provided. Applicants can get information about documents required during registration and other issues from the portal.edu.az platform or from the Ministry of Education. It should be noted that the applicant's failure to register during this period is regarded as his refusal to study in the specialty in which he is placed, and his admission order is not sent to the educational institution. These applicants are not admitted to the competition held for vacant places.

Sub-bachelor's level means the professional-specialized degree given to graduates at the level of secondary professional-specialized education. As a college, our resources are mobilized for the development of our students at the sub-baccalaureate level as highly qualified and competitive professionals. The sub-baccalaureate level of education allows to prepare professionals who adapt flexibly to the labor market, and in terms of expanding access to education, all those who wish can take advantage of these opportunities. Also, it serves to quickly supply the labor market with the required number of specialists. Graduates who successfully graduate from college and receive a sub-bachelor's degree are eligible for non-competitive admission to the undergraduate level of higher education institutions. One of the main conditions when choosing a specialty is to choose a specialty that corresponds to the specialty he received earlier. For more information, you can visit the website of the college.
