Acknowledging Admission in CAPS
Come 18th September 2023, provisionally admitted candidates are necessitated to visit the JAMB CAPS Site to acknowledge their admission offers. This procedure must be concluded within four weeks from the admission date; non-compliance will categorise the candidate under “refusal to accept admission” in JAMB’s records, compromising future admission prospects.
Vital Screening Exercise and Document Checklist
Post acceptance, candidates must immediately commence their faculty screening, a process lasting four weeks. It’s paramount that candidates bring along the following documents and items:
- Evidence of acceptance fee payment
- Original JAMB Admission Letter and UTME result printout (not notification of result)
- Certified SSCE result stamped by the principal (Original and five photocopies)
- Reference letter from a reputable Clergyman/Imam/Lawyer/Senior Civil Servant (Original and five photocopies)
- Birth Certificate/Sworn declaration of Age and Local Government of origin or State of origin Certificate (no affidavits) (Original and five photocopies)
- School testimonial and University Health Centre Medical Card (Original and five photocopies)
- 12 red background passport photographs
- Original certificates for those who obtained their qualifications on or before 2020 (WAEC)
Candidates unable to partake in the Screening Exercise within the stipulated four weeks are presumed to have forfeited the offer, resulting in the lapse of admission.
This means the acceptance fee payment deadline is October 9th, 2023.

This announcement from DELSU is fundamental for admitted candidates, serving as a comprehensive guide on the acceptance fee and integral post-admission processes. It’s crucial for candidates to meticulously adhere to the outlined procedures and timelines to seamlessly transition into their new academic chapter at Delta State University.
