Many students have gained admission into Universities, Polytechnics, and other tertiary institutions but their admission status is not recognized on the JAMB website. Such students usually experience complications in their final year. Others have issues when it’s time to be mobilized for National Youth Service commonly known as NYSC. If you are such a student, what you need to solve this problem is REGULARIZATION. In this article, you will be learning how to apply for JAMB regularization.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) introduced the regularization process to adequately sync and update the admission status of candidates with Jamb’s database.
The JAMB regularization is largely accessible to Direct-Entry candidates looking to update admissions obtained from their NCE/OND/HND institutions with JAMB.
UTME candidates without official JAMB admission letters and registration numbers also need to apply. This is to regularize their current status in an institution with the admissions board.
If you fall in the category of any of the above-listed categories of students, then you should pay attention to the steps listed in this article.

All students should note that failure to apply for this regularization means that the admission you have in any JAMB-Approved Tertiary Institution is invalid. This can hinder the completion of your academic degree. It can also affect your deployment for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) program.
If you do not want to be a victim at a late hour, ensure you apply for JAMB regularization. Don’t wait till it becomes impossible and irrelevant to do so.

A brief about JAMB
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board was created in 1978 as an entrance exam board to facilitate admissions into Nigerian tertiary institutions such as Public and private universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education.
In 2013, the board transitioned from a “Paper-based test model” (PBT) to a “Computer-based test model” (CBT) to meet global educational standards and curtail the rising cases of examination malpractice. This process and a transition to a portal-based system of storing information further increased computer literacy among prospective candidates.
Without a secure Jamb password, candidates are denied access to the creation of a unique individual profile and relevant jamb services such as the Central admission processing system (CAPS), JAMB notification of admission, and admission letter printing.
