Before we continue let’s understand what is JAMB Regularization.

What is JAMB Regularization?

JAMB Regularization is a process by which the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) officially recognizes the admission offered to a student that was not initially processed by the board. This is usually done for students who have been admitted to a tertiary institution but do not have a JAMB registration number or admission letter.

The purpose of JAMB Regularization is to ensure that all students who have been admitted to tertiary institutions are duly registered with JAMB and have access to all the benefits that come with being a registered JAMB candidate, such as being able to print their admission letter, participate in the NYSC program, and access other government scholarships and grants.

To apply for JAMB Regularization, students must first create a JAMB profile and then fill out an indemnity form. The indemnity form must be signed by the Dean of Student Affairs or equivalent officer of the institution where the student is enrolled. The form must then be submitted to the JAMB office in the state where the institution is located.

JAMB Regularization fees are usually around N10,000 (Nigerian Naira). The processing time for JAMB Regularization can vary, but it usually takes a few weeks to a few months. Once the application has been approved, students will be able to print their admission letter and access all the benefits that come with being a registered JAMB candidate.
