Dear JAMBITE, have you been offered admission by the institution of your choice? If yes,then you need to proceed to the JOINT ADMISSION AND MATRICULATION BOARD (JAMB) CENTRAL ADMISSION PROCESSING SYSTEM (CAPS) portal to indicate your ACCEPTANCE or REJECTION to the admission proffered to you to enable the processing of your admission. If No, you can as well take advantage of the JAMB CAPS 2022 portal to monitor their admission.
This is to inform all aspirants of various Tertiary institutions in Nigeria that the JOINT ADMISSION AND MATRICULATION BOARD (JAMB) has activated the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) portal where Direct Entry and UTME students can accept or reject their admission offer or monitor their admission.
In sequence to that, aspirants of various institutions are advised to visit the JAMB CAPS portal to check their admission status and also indicate the acceptance or rejection of their admission, as JAMB has stated that all admission would be made online through the CENTRAL ADMISSION PROCESSING SYSTEM (CAPS).
The JAMB CAPS organises the admission process, addresses the problems associated with the manual approach, reestablishes the freedom of tertiary institutions concerning admissions, avail candidates with information on available choices if institutions and programmes, increase admission opportunities, abrogate multiple admissions as well as provide easily retrievable data for decision making and research on the Education sector in the country.

About JAMBS CAPS
The CAPS ( Central Admission Processing System) platform was created by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to automate the admission process into tertiary institutions in Nigeria. It additionally guarantees excellent control, transparency and credibility of the admission system.
The Central Admission Processing System(CAPS)
The board has announced to make provisions for a ‘marketplace’ inside the JAMB portal where institutions can go and request for students who score their cut off points.
The system is such that institutions can only admit those who meet their cut off points, that is to say that if a candidate fails to meet up with the cut off points of such school, he or she would certainly be denied admission into such school.
CAPS not only automates the process but some other innovations have also been introduced such as:
Opportunities for aspirants to confirm provisional admission, this, eliminating cases of candidates giving up admission
Market place to enable institutions to source candidates from the available pool, based on various criteria such as JAMB score, State, Local Government or gender of the candidates.
The requirements for all awaiting O/L result candidates to upload their results into the JAMB portal before being considered for admission.
Admissions can be processed in batches, with candidates, being able to check their admission status at any point in time on the JAMB portal.
