JAMB Announces New Admission Guidelines for Foreign Students in Nigeria

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced new guidelines for the admission of foreign students to Nigerian universities. The new guidelines, which replace the previous ones issued in November 2019, aim to streamline the admission process for foreign candidates and ensure the accuracy of their information.

According to a memo signed by the Director of Information Technology Services of JAMB, Fabian Okoro, and dated October 10, 2023, the new guidelines are as follows:

  • The university sends a list of all fresh foreign candidates (for current admission) to the state JAMB office with a letter of indemnity signed by the head of the institution. The letter of indemnity will confirm that the candidates meet the admission requirements and indemnify JAMB against any inaccuracy of the claims.
  • The same list and letter are sent to the JAMB Director of Admissions through the CAPS mail.
  • The institution directs candidates to the state JAMB office to create their profiles individually on the facility platform. Only the state JAMB office that the institution is located can attend to the candidates. Candidates not on the list sent by the institution will be rejected by the state JAMB office and cannot process any application on the system.
  • At the state JAMB office, the candidate fills a fresh foreign application form online, which is available only at the state JAMB office. A registration number and a transaction ID are generated and assigned to the candidate after completing the application.
  • Each candidate prints and submits the auto-generated indemnity form to his/her institution for the signature of the head of the institution to again indemnify JAMB on the accuracy of the information provided by the candidate.
  • The head of the institution authorises the candidate’s application online. At this point, the details of the candidate are made available on CAPS to enable the institution propose and recommend the candidate to JAMB for approval.
