We applaud you for desiring to take the next steps in your life! Your Òrìṣà-Based education will establish credibility for you as you pursue your calling and/or vocation. In today’s society, employers (secular and non-secular) are looking for individuals who not only have an earned degree, but they are also looking for someone who has character, integrity, and moral conviction. Ifá University is the place where you will find the complete package, as we seek to educate “whole” people who are seeking the “whole” truth in order to impact the “whole” world!

We offer a systematic, spiritual, scholarly study of an array of Ifá/Òrìṣà subjects. Our programs are designed to contribute to your spiritual maturity, effective leadership, deeper worship, and career as an Ìyánífa, Babaláwo, Oníṣègùn or Olórìṣà. Whether you seek leadership in your local Ilé, employment, or entrepreneurship, our combination of instruction in deep, theological issues as well as practical training for Ifá and Òrìṣà living makes you more marketable. When opportunity presents itself, you must be ready and prepared to move on it. It is our belief that by obtaining your degree through Ifá University, your Orí will use your education to prepare, impart, and equip you for great opportunities in the future.

All students are welcome at Ifá University, as we admit students of any race, color, national origin, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the University. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, and ethnic origin in administration of our educational policies, admission policies, scholarship programs, and other school-administered programs. 

The requirements for admission have been established by the University’s Advisory Council as providing minimum qualifications for admission. Ifá University follows an open admissions policy and all candidates for admission to Ifá University must show evidence of commitment to Òrìṣà Religion, belief, practice and dedication to ìwàpẹ̀lẹ́.

However, students who wish to avail themselves to the training offered by Ifá University, but who are not high school graduates, should complete the Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) section of the admissions application. Ifá University will evaluate the knowledge, skills, abilities, and university-level learning competency you have attained.
