JAMB CAPS 2019/2020: How to ACCEPT or REJECT Admission

The Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) portal where UTME and DE candidates can accept or reject their admission offer has now been opened by the management of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

This post covers how to Accept and Reject admission on JAMB CAPS Portal. We will be walking you through a step by step guide on how to accept or reject admission offer on the JAMB CAPS portal.

Candidates should note that once you accept the admission, your admission quest is over as you will no longer be available for other schools’ admission consideration. However, if you reject the admission, you become available to other schools for more admission consideration.

What is JAMB CAPS?

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) is a platform created to ensuring quality control, transparency and credibility of the admission process.

The Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) is expected to make provision for a ‘market place’ in the JAMB portal where institutions can go and ‘request for students in Nigeria who score their cut off points.’

  • Login with your Email and Password.
  • Click on CAPS (on the left side of the page)
  • Select ‘Admission Status’ on the left panel.
