JAMB/NUC/UTME/2023 Admission

Stops Universities, Polytechnics from Selling Part-Time, DL, Other Forms

FCT, Abuja – The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board has ordered that higher institutions in Nigeria, including universities, polytechnics and colleges of education, should stop selling part-time, distance learning and other alternative admission form to admission seekers.

In a tweet on Thursday, August 32, the examination board stated that all admission into first-degree, National Diploma, National Innovation Diploma and the Nigeria Certificate in Education, either full-time or part-time, must now be processed through JAMB.

According to the examination board, no institution can sell application forms for admission into these programmes, and all applicants should apply through JAMB.

JAMB orders NUC, NCCE, NBTE to stop tertiary institutions from selling part-time form

JAMB further added that the policy directive would be enforced through the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE), National Universities Commission (NUC), and the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), and they will ensure that all tertiary institutions adhere to it.

This is coming when many institutions are rounding up their academic sessions and opening their portals to admission seekers.

While JAMB did not give a reason for the new directive, the development also came at a time when President Bola Tinubu signed the student loan bill into law.

The statement partly read:

“All applications of admissions to First Degree, National Diploma, National Innovation Diploma and the Nigeria Certificate in Education into Full-Time, Distance Learning, Part-Time, Outreach, Sandwich, etc., must be processed ONLY through the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

“No Institution should advertise or sell “application forms” for admissions into the programmes.”
