JAMB Introduces Streamlined Admission Requirements for Foreign Students
A memo signed by Fabian Okoro, the Director of Information Technology Services at JAMB, disclosed these fresh conditions. According to the memo, universities are now required to send a list of all prospective foreign students along with a letter of indemnity to the State JAMB Office.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has introduced 10 new admission requirements for foreign students seeking entry to Nigerian universities. These requirements, which replace the previous ones issued in November 2019, aim to streamline the admission process for foreign candidates.
A memo signed by Fabian Okoro, the Director of Information Technology Services at JAMB, disclosed these fresh conditions. According to the memo, universities are now required to send a list of all prospective foreign students along with a letter of indemnity to the State JAMB Office. This letter confirms that the listed candidates meet the admission requirements, holding the institution accountable for the accuracy of their claims.
Moreover, the candidates must visit their respective State JAMB Offices to create their profiles individually on the facility platform. It's important to note that only the State JAMB Office affiliated with the institution can assist these candidates.
During the registration at the State JAMB Office, candidates will complete the Fresh Foreign Application form online, which will be exclusively available at the State JAMB Office. Candidates not on the initial list submitted by the institution will be rejected and cannot proceed with the application process.
Upon completing registration at the JAMB Office, a Registration Number will be generated and assigned to each candidate, along with their transaction number. After this, candidates are required to print and submit an auto-generated Indemnity Form to their institution, where the Head of the Institution will sign it to indemnify JAMB regarding the accuracy of the provided information.
At this stage, the Head of the Institution authorizes the candidate's application online, making the candidate's details available on CaPS (the Central Admissions Processing System) for JAMB approval.
These new requirements are designed to enhance the admission process for foreign students seeking entry into Nigerian universities. It is expected that these changes will help streamline the process, ensuring that candidates meet all necessary criteria.
