The regular stream programme is opened to only Senior Division students from the Ghana Armed Forces and those of friendly Armed Forces and other sister security agencies. Lectures are on weekdays.

The weekend programme is opened to the public. Lectures take place every other weekend in time frames ranging from 3:00 pm to 09:00 pm on Fridays and 9:00 am to 3:00 pm on Saturdays.

During each Semester, students will be issued with topics for Term Papers to prepare and submit written responses at programmed dates. Term Papers will constitute part of students’ assessment.
