JAMB Admission Status/List checking portal › Will you like to confirm whether you have been offered admission into your institution of choice on the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) portal? If yes, check below for the procedure to confirm your admission status with JAMB for FREE! 

JAMB Admission Status, JAMB Admission List

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 the JAMB Admission Status Checking Portal.

How to Check Admission Status on JAMB Portal

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.

If you already have a JAMB profile, jump to the five (5) simple steps outlined below on how to check your admission status on the JAMB Admission List portal:

  1. STEP 1: Go to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) E-facility portal –
  2. STEP 2: Log in to your Jamb profile with your username and password.
  3. STEP 3: After a successful login, scroll down, then locate and click the ‘Check Admission Status‘ tab.
  4. STEP 4: Select your Exam year and supply your registration number in the required columns.
  5. STEP 5: Finally, click on the ‘Check Admission Status‘ button to access your JAMB admission status.

Successfully admitted candidates are advised to:

Not Yet admitted? If yes, please take note of the following:

1. Login into JAMB CAPS to verify your O’level result upload.

It’s important to verify whether your O’level result has been uploaded on the JAMB portal or not. As failure to upload your O’level result can affect your JAMB admission status.

  1. Log-in to your JAMB profile (
  2. Click on ‘Check Admission Status,
  3. Click on ‘Access my CAPS’
  4. Click on ‘My O’level’ to confirm if your O’level is uploaded. If not visit any nearby accredited JAMB CBT centre to upload your O’level result. Admission cannot be processed for candidates whose O’level status in CAPS indicates ‘Awaiting Result’.

2. Check if you have been recommended for transfer to another program.

Based on the JAMB CAPS implementation policy, institutions have the right to consider some candidates for transfer from the choice programme to another programme because of UTME and O’level combinations.

Candidates are expected to monitor their admission by following the instructions a-c above, then click the ‘Transfer Approval’ link to know if they are recommended for transfer to another program. You are required to either accept or reject, this transfer consideration. If you accept, your first choice institution will be able to admit you to the new program. If you reject, you will remain in your preferred Course / Program. The program transfer will not be effected.

3. You applied for the JAMB UTME with awaiting result.

Candidates who used ‘awaiting result’ during their registration are to upload their O’Level result on the JAMB portal so that their institution of choice will process their admission. Direct-entry candidates including JUPEB students should also upload their A’level and O’level results to avoid disqualification. This is to enable the screening officers to determine their qualifications for admission. Recommended: How to Upload O’Level Result on JAMB Portal / Profile.
