Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Admission Status Checking Portal for UTME & DE Candidates 2020 & Past Years

Will you like to confirm whether you have been offered admission into your institution of choice on JAMB portal? If yes,  check below for the procedure to access your admission status on JAMB admission status/list checking portal.  Apart from admission seekers, candidates that wish to print their admission letters can also use this platform to confirm whether their institutions have sent their names to JAMB.


The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) management has activated the portal where Direct Entry and UTME candidates can now check or confirm their admission status for all years. Checking of admission status on JAMB portal is totally FREE!

As a matter of fact, some schools may not even publish their admission list on their own portal or notice board on time. For candidates that applied for admission in such schools, the only way to know when they have been offered admission is to check their admission status on JAMB Admission Status Checking Portal.

How to Check JAMB Admission Status

In case you don’t have an account with JAMB (especially candidates from 2016 downward), you will have to create one to check your admission status. RECOMMENDED: How to Create a JAMB Account.
