JAMB, NUC threaten universities over irregular admission




The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), the National Universities Commission (NUC), National Board for Technical Education and the National Commission for Colleges of Education have threatened to sanction institutions that sell application forms for the conduct of the 2022/2023 admissions.

The move is meant to curtail the high rate of irregular admissions conducted by institutions.

The conduct for the 2022/2023 admissions began in August 2022 with JAMB pegging the deadline at December 31, 2022.

Though some institutions are yet to commence the admission processes, JAMB said it would sanction institutions that sell application forms to candidates.

The board directed that all applications must be routed through the Central Admissions Processing System.

In a document titled, “Serialisation of guidelines for the 2022 admissions exercise,” which was made exclusively available to our correspondent on Monday, the board noted that it was working alongside the three regulatory agencies for tertiary institutions.

“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 JAMB.”
