Universities to be sanctioned by JAMB and NUC for irregular admission
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), the National Universities Commission (NUC), the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), and the National Commission for Colleges of Education have all threatened to penalize universities that sell application forms for the 2022/2023 admissions cycle.
In a memo titled “Serialisation of guidelines for the 2022 admissions exercise,” the regulatory agencies stated that all applications for admissions to First Degree, National Diploma, National Innovation Diploma, and Nigeria Certificate in Education into Full-Time, Distance Learning, Part-Time, Outreach, Sandwich, and other programs must be processed only through the JAMB Central Admission Processing System (JAMB-CAPS).
The memo states that this is to reduce the high rate of irregular admissions conducted by institutions.
Though JAMB began conducting admissions for the 2022/2023 academic year in August 2022, with a deadline of December 31, 2022, it was discovered that some institutions were conducting admissions outside of JAMB-CAPS, hence the warning.
