Now you do!

JAMB regularization is a process of managing or regulating students of OND,  HND, NCE, bachelor’s Degree programs for easy reference and recognition.

Also, another name for jamb regularisation is late entry Or Direct Entry Admission. The reason for this will be discussed later in this post, so,  kindly read through.

Furthermore, read this article carefully to see the importance of doing your jamb regularization and people who it is mostly likely to affect the most.


As a matter of fact, jamb regularization is not for everyone but it is necessary that all students confirm that their jamb is regularized because it is very important.

Meanwhile, below are the categories of people who are to do jamb regularization compulsorily.

Direct Entry Students

These are students who after their provisional admission into an institution decide to transfer to another school to further their education. Especially those who school in polytechnics and colleges of education and decide to run a degree program in the university.

Those who got admission in an institution that do not need jamb 

There are institutions who do not require jamb score or result to be admitted. For example, National Open University Of Nigeria (NOUN).

Students Who Run Programs That Does Not Require JAMB

Yes! There are certain programs in tertiary institutions that do not require  JAMB exam for students of such programs. For example, Pre-Degree students do not require to write jamb to be admitted. Therefore, students who got admission into any higher institution though pre-degree must do jamb regularisation.

Also, Students Who Study Courses In An Institution Which Was Not Originally Granted To Them By JAMB

There are students who are currently studying a course which was not the original course granted to them when they gained admission via JAMB. For example, if a student was offered admission into psychology department in an institution and later decides to change to Law after the first year; such student is required to do jamb regularization.
