    Premarital screening is a worldwide activity that aims to diagnose and treat unrecognized disorders and reduce the transmission of diseases to couples and children. This study was aimed at assessing the perception and acceptance of premarital fertility screening among final year students of the college of health sciences, University of Ilorin, Kwara state. A descriptive research design with a structured, self-designed questionnaire was employed in the study to select a sample of 220 final year students purposively. Results showed that the respondents had adequate knolewdge of pre-marital fertility screening but some of the respondents still have negative perception. The majority 79.5% of the respondents were positive about going for premarital fertility screening if it was available. Conclusively, policymakers should implement policies that support hitch-free screening processes. Nurses should comply with ethical principles and be able to health educate people to undergo fertility screening before marriage.
