What is JAMB regularization?

It is the process of applying for admission indexing or a unique identifier by JAMB. It is a popular feature for students who want to pursue higher education. This process ensures that students' admission details match the institution's records. The candidates who need regularization include those whose:

  • Did not get a JAMB unique identifier record or admission letter
  • Have an incorrect or incomplete JAMB record or admission letter
  • Are in the process of transferring from one institution to another
  • Have changed their institution or course.

The regularization process will enable a student to do the following.

  • Acquire the board's registration number.
  • Receive an admission letter.
  • Apply for a change of course/institution.
  • Apply for direct entry into an institution.
  • Allow you to participate in the NYSC program.
