JAMB CAPS 2020/2021: How to ACCEPT or REJECT Admission Offer

Did you apply for the 2020/2021 JAMB UTME/Direct entry and have been offered admission by the university of your choice? If yes, you need to proceed to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) portal to indicate the ACCEPTANCE or REJECTION of your admission offer to enable the processing of your admission. Candidates that are yet to be admitted too can take the advantage of the JAMB CAPS portal to monitor their admission.

JAMB CAPS


This is to inform all the candidates seeking admission into the various tertiary institutions in Nigeria that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has activated the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) portal where UTME and Direct Entry candidates can accept/reject their admission offer and also monitor their admission.

JAMB admission policy states that all admission would be made online through the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS); consequently, all candidates seeking admission into Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges of Education and Other tertiary institutions in Nigeria for the 2020/2021 Academic Session are advised to visit the JAMB CAPS portal to check their admission status and also indicate the acceptance or rejection of their admission.

The JAMB CAPS streamlines the Admissions Process, addresses the challenges associated with the manual approach, restores the autonomy of the tertiary institutions with respect to admissions, makes candidates the focus and empowers them with information on available choices of institutions and programmes, expands admission opportunities, eliminates multiple admissions, and provides easily retrievable data for decision making and research on the Education Sector in the country.

Some institutions may not publish the list of candidates admitted into their various programmes on their own 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 admission, you become available to other schools with free admission slots for admission consideration.

What is JAMB CAPS Platform?

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) created the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) platform to automate the Admissions Process into the tertiary institutions in Nigeria. It also ensures quality control, transparency and credibility of the admission process.

The Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) is expected to make provision for a ‘market place’ in the JAMB portal where institutions can go and ‘request for students in Nigeria who score their cut off points.’

The system is such that institutions can only admit those who meet their cut off points. If a candidate fails to meet the cut off mark, that student would certainly be denied admission irrespective of the candidate’s connection.

CAPS not only automates the process, but a number of other innovations are also being introduced. And these include:

  • opportunities for candidates to confirm provisional admissions thus eliminating cases of candidates abandoning admissions;
  • market place to enable institutions source candidates from the available pool based on various criteria such as JAMB score, State, Local Government and even gender of the candidates
  •  the requirement for all awaiting O/L results candidates to upload their results into JAMB portal before being considered for admission
  • admissions can be processed in batches as well as instantaneously with candidates being able to check their admission status at any point in time on the JAMB portal.
