- Upon signing in to your JAMB CAPS portal, various options will be available at the top left-hand corner.
- If present, select the “View Admission Status” option.
- If you receive a congratulatory message, it indicates that you’ve been granted admission. Now, the decision to accept or decline the offer is in your hands.
- On the other hand, if the message reads “Not Admitted,” it signifies that you have not been granted admission at the moment. Continue checking for updates.
Understanding “Admission in Progress” on JAMB CAPS
“Admission in progress” status on JAMB CAPS implies that you’ve been selected for admission and the processing is underway. It indicates that your chosen institution has shortlisted you for admission, but JAMB’s confirmation is pending. Once verified, the status will transition from “in progress” to “admitted.” If not confirmed, it will remain as “not admitted.”
Understanding “Not Admitted” Status on JAMB CAPS
If your JAMB CAPS status reflects “NOT ADMITTED,” it signifies that you haven’t received a provisional admission offer from your preferred institution. Several scenarios might explain this:
- Your institution may not have submitted your information to JAMB yet.
- The admissions list for your selected school might not have been made public.
- If neither of the above applies, your school has completed its admission process but didn’t consider you eligible based on their criteria.
Continued Opportunities with JAMB CAPS
Admission remains an ongoing process that continues until your chosen institution completes its admissions. Remember, JAMB doesn’t directly offer admission; it’s the institution you’ve applied to that grants admission. JAMB’s involvement typically starts a few weeks or months after you’ve received admission from the institution. While there’s no fixed deadline for this process, it’s wise to regularly check your CAPS profile for updates.
Unveiling the “Transfer Approval” Feature on JAMB CAPS
The “Transfer Approval” feature caters to candidates whose initial course program has changed. This feature addresses cases where an admission offer is extended for a program different from the one initially chosen. Accepting or declining this transfer is straightforward and typically involves a change of course. Seek assistance at a cyber cafe to complete this process.
