What is JAMB Regularization?

JAMB Regularization is a process for the reconciliation of certificates between JAMB and the school that issued that certificate and confirmation of a graduate’s admission for NYSC mobilization.

This procedure is for you if you were enrolled in a school without writing JAMB and did not get an admission letter from JAMB during your admission. The reason for the regularization, in this case, is to reconcile the issue of “JAMB data/information”.

The regularization option is labeled “Late Application” on the JAMB portal and is generally for NCE/OND/HND candidates who want to take a JAMB direct entry examination and for graduates who waiting for confirmation from JAMB to be mobilized for NYSC.

To know if you should do the JAMB Regularization procedure, follow these steps:

  • Visit the JAMB Portal.
  • Find the year you sat for the JAMB exam and select.
  • Click “Check Admission Status”.
  • Enter your JAMB Registration number and tap “ENTER”.

If you find your admission details – course of study for your ND/NCE/HND, school, and passport then no need for you to do regularization.

However, if you do not find these details, a pop-up notification “Sorry no admission is given yet” will be displayed, meaning you should regularize.
