What is JAMB Regularization?

JAMB Regularization is the official procedure through which the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) acknowledges the admission granted to a student that was not initially processed by the board. This is typically applicable to students who have secured admission into a tertiary institution but lack a JAMB registration number or an admission letter.

The primary objective of JAMB Regularization is to ensure that all students admitted to tertiary institutions are appropriately registered with JAMB, granting them access to the privileges associated with being a registered JAMB candidate.

These benefits include the ability to print their admission letter, participate in the NYSC program, and avail themselves of various government scholarships and grants.

To initiate the JAMB Regularization process, students need to first establish a JAMB profile and subsequently complete an indemnity form. The said form requires the endorsement of the Dean of Student Affairs or an equivalent official from the institution where the student is enrolled.

Following completion, the form must be submitted to the JAMB office situated in the state where the institution is based. JAMB Regularization fees typically amount to around N10,000 (Nigerian Naira). The processing duration for JAMB Regularization varies, ranging from a few weeks to a few months.
