The Nigerian University Commission, a body set up by the Federal Ministry of Education to checkmate the activities of all universities in Nigeria and making sure due compliance are strictly adhered to is responsible for the approval of postgraduate schools in Nigeria.

Some factors must be taken note off upon approval from the NUC, some of which are:
