    You may now proceed to Accept or Reject the admission offer.
    This means you have been recommended for admission and your application is being processed. Check back at a later time until your admission status is updated.
    This means you are yet to be considered for admission. Regularly check your JAMB candidate dashboard for any changes.

Next Steps for Candidates offered Admission

Candidates who have successfully received their Admission offer are advised to take the following steps:

For a complete guide visit How to Accept/Reject your Admission on JAMB CAPS.


Login to your JAMB Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) and ACCEPT or REJECT your admission.

After accepting the admission offer proceed to Print your JAMB admission letter . This will be needed during clearance and registration.

Print your JAMB result slip (comes with passport photograph attached).


If you were offered different courses from what you applied for you may apply for a change of course on the JAMB Portal.


What to do if your JAMB Admission Status shows ‘Not Yet Admitted’.

It’s important to verify whether your O’level result has been uploaded on the JAMB portal or not, as failure to upload your O’level result can affect your JAMB admission status.

  1. Login to your JAMB profile
  2. Click the ‘Check Admission Status’ tab
  3. Click ‘Access my CAPS
  4. Click ‘My O’level’ in the navigation to confirm if your O’level is uploaded.

If it is not, visit any nearby accredited JAMB CBT centre to upload your O’level result.

Admission cannot be processed for candidates whose O’level status is ‘Awaiting Result’.

JAMB CAPS allows institutions to consider some candidates for transfer from their original choice of programme to another programme based on UTME and O’level combinations.

You can view your transfer status by accessing your CAPS dashboard and selecting ‘Transfer Approval’ from the navigation to know whether you are recommended for transfer to another program.

You are required to either accept or reject this transfer consideration. If you accept, your first choice institution will be able to admit you to the new program. If you reject, you will remain in your preferred course/program.

Candidates who used ‘awaiting result during their registration will need to upload their O’Level result to the JAMB portal to enable their institution of choice process their admission.

To avoid disqualification, direct-entry candidates, including JUPEB students, should also upload their A’level and O’level results.
