  • What is the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) CAPS [i.e. caps.jamb.gov.ng]?
    • CAPS is an acronym for Central Admission Processing System, it’s a portal where admission seekers can express the ACCEPTANCE or REJECTION of their admission offer.
    • Aside from accepting and rejecting admission offers, admission seekers are also required to upload their results on their profile with the help of any accredited JAMB centres.
  • Am I required to pay to use JAMB CAPS? No payment whatsoever is required to use the portal.
  • Who can use CAPS? Any candidates that registered for JAMB can make use of the platform.
  • Check below for a detailed explanation of how to accept and reject admission offers on JAMB CAPS.

According to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board’s (JAMB) entrance policy, all admissions will be completed electronically using the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS). As a result, all candidates interested in gaining admission into Nigerian universities, polytechnics, colleges of education, and other tertiary institutions for the 2022/2023 academic session are strongly encouraged to visit the JAMB CAPS portal and indicate whether they are accepting or rejecting their admission.

How JAMB CAPS Works

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) created the Central Admission Processing System to streamline the application process for admission to Nigeria’s higher education institutions (CAPS). Furthermore, it ensures that the admissions procedure is of extremely high quality, transparent, and reliable.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board’s (JAMB) Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) streamlines the admissions process, addresses the challenges associated with the manual approach, restores tertiary institutions’ admissions autonomy, focuses on candidates and empowers them with information on available institutions and programs, expands admission opportunities, eliminates multiple admissions, and provides data that is easily retrievable.

The Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) is expected to include a “marketplace” in the JAMB portal where institutions can go to request students in Nigeria who meet their cut-off points.

Because of the way the system is set up, institutions can only accept applicants who match their minimum requirements. If a candidate fails to meet the cut-off mark, admission will be denied regardless of the candidate’s connection.

  • CAPS automates the process, and other innovations are being introduced as well. These are some examples:
  • possibilities for candidates to confirm provisional admissions, hence eradicating instances of candidates abandoning admissions;
  • marketplace that enables institutions to source students from the accessible pool depending on numerous parameters such as JAMB score, state and local government, and even gender of the individuals
  • all candidates expecting O/L results must upload their results to the JAMB portal in order to be considered for admission
  • admissions can be processed in batches and in real-time, with candidates able to check their admission status on the JAMB portal at any time

Some institutions may not publish the list of candidates admitted into their various programmes on their portal or notice board. So, admission seekers are advised to check JAMB CAPS to track their admission status continually.

PLEASE NOTE: Once you accept the admission, your admission quest is over as you will no longer be available for other schools’ admission consideration. On the other hand, if you reject the admission, you become available to other schools with free admission slots for admission consideration.
