This page will guide you on everything you need to know about checking your admission status, accept or reject 2024 admission. Read on!

You will learn the straightforward procedure for checking JAMB admission status on the JAMB profile via the JAMB CAPS portal. As well as, how to accept or reject an admission offer if you have been given one.

This is to inform all the candidates seeking admission into the various tertiary institutions in Nigeria that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has activated the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) portal.

It is where UTME and Direct Entry candidates can accept/reject their admission offer and also monitor their admission.

Before we show you how to access the JAMB CAPS portal and check your admission status directly. It is very important for us to explain what the JAMB CAPS portal is all about and what it’s used for. Let’s go!

What is JAMB CAPS Portal Really about?

Before going into details about JAMB CAPS 2024 Update, please note. JAMB CAPS is an abbreviation representing the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board Central Admission Processing System.

The platform was created by JAMB to automate the admissions process into tertiary institutions in Nigeria. It also ensures quality control, transparency, and credibility of the admission process.

The Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) is expected to make provision for a ‘marketplace’ in the JAMB portal. It is where institutions can go and ‘request for students in Nigeria who score their cut-off points.

The system is such that institutions can only admit those who meet their cut-off points. If a candidate fails to meet the cut-off mark, that student would certainly be denied admission irrespective of the candidate’s connection.


JAMB CAPS does not only automates the process but a number of other innovations are also being introduced. And these include:

  • Opportunities for candidates to confirm provisional admissions thus eliminating cases of candidates abandoning admissions;
  • Market place to enable institutions to source candidates from the available pool based on various criteria such as JAMB score, State, Local Government and even gender of the candidates
  • The requirement for all awaiting O/L results candidates to upload their results into the JAMB portal before being considered for admission
  • Admissions can be processed in batches as well as instantaneously with candidates being able to check their admission status at any point in time on the JAMB portal.

Functions of the JAMB CAPS Portal Platform

  • To access the JAMB admission status.
  • To accept/reject admission offers.
  • Also, to upload screening documents like the O’level certificate for review during JAMB registration.
