Every student enrolled at the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) is provided with an electronic wallet, commonly known as the E-wallet.


This E-wallet serves as the primary medium for conducting all financial transactions through the NOUN students’ portal.


To facilitate any type of payment into your NOUN E-wallet, it is necessary to generate a unique identification number called a Remita Retrieval Reference or RRR.


The RRR is a crucial reference number that enables seamless and secure transactions within the NOUN ecosystem.


By generating an RRR, students can conveniently make payments, such as tuition fees, course registration fees, examination fees, and other related expenses.




1.  Login to your NOUN student’s portal and click  “E-wallet”.

4.  The last step is to copy your RRR code down and proceed to make your payment in any commercial bank or with your card, you’ll need your RRR code to credit your wallet after making your payment.




When you get to the bank to make payment, The account name you’re paying to is “National Open University Of Nigeria”  and the account number is your GENERATED REMITA NUMBER. 


After a successful payment you’ll be issued a remita payment receipt by the bank or check your mail for your receipt if you pay with your card. Then proceed to credit your wallet with the RRR code you just paid for.




New students that always give unknown agents jobs like this listen very well. NEVER make payment to any RRR code that was generated elsewhere other than the one from your portal.


Only make payment to the RRR code that was generated from your portal, check step one of this article. Some scammers will generate a different RRR code for a different stuff and ask you to pay that it’s your RRR code, if you try it, your money is gone because you just paid for someone else fees and not yours.


Don’t be a victim, a lot of new students have fallen into this subtle scam unknowingly and later learnt their lessons the hard way. If you need help you can always contact us or use the comment sections on our posts to get help.
