This is to inform all candidates who has successfully been admitted into their various school of choice either through their school portal or via JAMB portal to accept or reject admission through the JAMB CAPS Profile.

It is mandatory that all candidates who has successfully been admitted to log on to their respective JAMB Profiles and accept their admission offer or decline which ever is their choice.

Candidates who are admitted and accepted admission via the JAMB CAPS are entitled to print out their JAMB Admission Letters immediately.

The acceptance also tells us that such candidates admission exercise has been closed and so therefore he or she is no longer interested in further admissions from other tertiary institutions.

On the other hand Candidates who has been offered admission via their School portal and are yet to accept admission via the JAMB CAPS Portal might still stand a chance of forfeiting such admission after some days.

We are therefore urging all institutions who has finalized their admission process to inform all their students to log on back to their respective JAMB Profiles to accept or reject the admission.
