For example; if you’ve been given admission, it’s your responsibility to proceed to JAMB CAPS portal to either ‘Accept’ or ‘Reject’ your admission. JAMB CAPS portal is meant for both UTME and Direct Entry candidates.

In this article, I will show you how to use JAMB CAPS to Accept or Reject your admission.


In recent time, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB launched the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) where UTME and Direct Entry candidates can accept or reject their admission.

CAPS is a part of JAMB’s new admission policy. All admissions into higher Institutions in Nigeria are to processed online through CAPS.

Therefore, candidates seeking for admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria should visit the JAMB CAPS to track their admissions.

It is important to know that some schools may not publish their admission list on their portal so it’s advised to track your Admission through CAPS.

NOTE: Once you ‘Accept’ your admission into any institution, your admission quest will be over.

You will no longer have chance for admission offer in other schools.

If you neither Accept nor Reject your admission, your admission will hang in the air – no further action will be taken.
