About JAMB Regularization and its Purpose

The Joint Admission Matriculation Board, JAMB Regularization is the process of ensuring that the Board validates candidates current admission details with the school that offered admission to such candidates.

This is done in their database. This is done with the aim of either granting one gateway of securing admission via direct entry or proceed for service.

Also, JAMB Regularization simply means the reconciliation of your OND/ND/NCE/HND admission between your institution and JAMB. JAMB regularization is also known as ‘LATE APPLICATION’ on JAMB website.

JAMB Late Application (formerly referred to as “regularization”) provides an opportunity for candidates that are in any institution but with no JAMB registration number.


– The purpose of regularization is to ensure that JAMB has your current admission detail that tally with the admission/registration record in the school that offered you admission.

– This allows candidates with admission but with no prior record with JAMB ability to register on the platform.

– This Process is either called JAMB Regularization, Condonement of Illegitimate Admission Or Late Application Method.

– This year 2021 regularization payment/procedures are quite similar to last year process, the only difference is the payment mode.
