JAMB Regularization is basically a way for JAMB Board to verify that the admission details of a candidate match up with the records of the school where they were offered admission. This process helps to ensure that the candidate has a fair shot at securing admission, and can either result in a clear pathway to admission or the issuance of an official admission letter and registration number.
The purpose of JAMB regularization is to address and manage university admissions for various levels of education such as ND, HND, OND, and NCE, as well as to rectify any issues with a student’s JAMB status, ensuring that they are officially recognized as having successfully completed the required JAMB requirements.
Basically, the main aim of JAMB regularization is to confirm that the admission information that JAMB has on file for you corresponds to the admission and registration data that your school has on record for you. This process helps to ensure that there are no discrepancies and that you are recognized as a bonafide student of the institution.
When we talk about JAMB regularization applicants, we are referring to students who have been granted admission to a particular institution but are lacking an official JAMB admission letter.
It should be noted that in certain cases, admission may be granted by some institutions to students who did not register for JAMB, particularly those who are enrolled in basic or certificate programs.
As a result, the JAMB regularization process allows for such applicants who have been accepted without any prior JAMB record to register on the portal and ensure that they are properly documented and recognized by JAMB.
If you’re planning to undergo JAMB regularization in 2023/2024, it’s important to take note of the following requirements:
- If you already have a valid JAMB Registration Number, you’ll need to provide your JAMB Result during the regularization process.

- The regularization process will also require personal details such as your address, date of birth, email address, gender, GSM number, marital status, name, state of origin, previous JAMB registration number, and year of enrollment.
- You’ll also be asked to provide institutional details such as the institution you’re enrolled in, your matriculation number, matriculation year, year of graduation, serial number on graduating list, name of the head of the institution and the registrar, as well as your current status in the institution.

Wondering when you should do JAMB regularization? It’s a simple process where JAMB verifies your certificate with the institution that issued it and confirms your eligibility for NYSC mobilization. The option for regularization is called “Late Application” on the JAMB online portal. If you have an NCE/OND/HND and want to take the JAMB direct entry exam or are a graduate waiting for JAMB confirmation for NYSC mobilization, you need to follow this procedure.
If you were admitted to your school without writing JAMB, it means you didn’t receive a JAMB admission letter at the time of your admission. Regularization helps resolve the “JAMB data/information” problem. To find out if you need to do JAMB regularization, follow these steps:
- Go to the JAMB portal at jamb.org.ng
- Select the year you took your JAMB exam
- Click on “Check Admission Status”
- Enter your JAMB registration number and click “ENTER”.
This information is for all Part-Time/Sandwich Students in Nigerian Tertiary Institutions!
JAMB is working hard to ensure accurate data of all undergraduate students in Nigerian universities and tertiary institutions. As a result, JAMB has integrated the admission process of Part-Time Degree Programme candidates into the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS).
To comply with this new process, all Part-Time students in Nigerian tertiary institutions should visit the JAMB e-facility platform and register their documents individually. This process should be completed at an approved JAMB CBT center, where students will fill out the JAMB Indemnity Form.
After completion, the Indemnity Form should be endorsed and signed by the Dean of School of Continuing Education (SCE) or Part-Time Studies of your Institution and submitted to the JAMB office. Once approved, students can then print their Admission Letter and receive their respective REG numbers from the JAMB website.
If you’re a prospective Part-Time candidate looking to enroll in any of the Part-Time/Sandwich programmes at any Nigerian Tertiary Institution, you must first purchase the JAMB Part-Time/Sandwich/Distance Learning Form for Three Thousand Five Hundred Naira (N3,500) before proceeding to purchase your respective institution’s part-time form.
