JAMB regularization is the process of ensuring that the JAMB board validates candidates current admission details with the school that offered admission to such candidates in their database with the aim of either granting one gateway of securing admission and granting admission letter/registration number.
Who should Do JAMB Regularization?
The JAMB regularization procedure is designed to regulate ND/NID/OND, HND, and NCE type of admission to the university and clear up the JAMB status of a prospective student.
The purpose of the JAMB regularization is to ensure that JAMB has your current admission detail that tally with the admission/registration record in the school that offered you admission.
Application for JAMB regularization is also for students who don’t have an admission letter from JAMB but was offered admission in tertiary institutions.
Students who did remedial/pre-degree programme like basic programme or certificate programme or direct application to the school.
Students who did not register JAMB during the year they were offered admission (ie from basic and certificate programme).
This allows candidates with admission but with no prior record with JAMB ability to register on the platform.

What is JAMB Regularization, Is it Important?
This is an exercise by the Joint Admission Matriculation Board to provide solutions to issues involved in the students’ admissions. These issues may likely hinder such candidates from furthering their studies or proceeding to NYSC. And this is the medium through which JAMB comes in to help.
Reasons For JAMB Regularization
A student was given admission to a polytechnic through the daily part-time program. This DPT doesn’t require UTME results from applicants. Hence, admitted candidates for such programs can skip UTME.
A student of a college of education was given admission through the pre-NCE program. Such a student moves to the 100-level of his course and completes her NCE. All these he does without writing UTME.
Where JAMB Regularization Is Required/Needed
The two students above, after completing their ND or NCE program, now want to proceed to universities through JAMB direct entry form.
Direct entry applicants don’t require writing UTME though, yet they need to pass through JAMB as the body in charge of the Nigeria admission administration.
Whereas, JAMB needs your details with them for the 100-level admission in order to provide you future admissions.
Don’t forget these applicants didn’t write UTME in the first place.
This is where JAMB Regularization comes in
Such applicants don’t have any details with JAMB. Hence, they will have to register for JAMB regularization to:
- provide their information for JAMB such that they can be recognized as students being given admission through JAMB
- re-activate their details with JAMB (if any)
- be given an assigned JAMB registration number which they will need to do things like printing of JAMB admission letter (for future reference), NYSC mobilization purpose after their degree, etc.
Those candidates who wrote JAMB in their years of admission but were not given admission through such JAMB results, will also be required to do JAMB regularization.
Those candidates given admissions through JAMB result but not given the same course selected in UTME (admission years before 2017) will equally do JAMB regularization. Those from 2017 to date will only do the change of course.
Who Must Do JAMB Regularization?
With reference to the scenarios above, the following candidates will be required to do JAMB regularization:
- Direct Entry applicants – These students who had been given admission to their previous programs without JAMB or fall into any of the cases above will be required to do JAMB regularization before they proceed to the JAMB CBT center for their direct entry form application.
- HND Students: There are two conditions for which HND students can be asked to do it.
- First, before being given HND admission, the school asks you to do it in order not to delay you for NYSC because you will need your JAMB registration number for NYSC.
- Second, some schools may wait till you graduate before asking you to do regularization in order to be mobilized for national service.
