Do Colleges of Health Technology Require JAMB UTME Cut-Off Marks? See Answer

Colleges of Health Technologies that Do and Do not Need JAMB Cut Off Marks

Let’s get it straight! Not all schools or programmes will require JAMB before you can be offered admission. For example, you don’t need UTME for schools/colleges of nursing admissions. But you may want to know if the same is applicable to the college of health Technology/Sciences.

JAMB, of courses, is in charge of admission in Nigeria especially when it comes to admissions into universities, polytechnics and colleges of education. Except you’re opting in for programmes like Part-Time courses, sandwich, Distance Learning, Registered Nursing, IJMB, JUPEB, NABTEB Advanced, Cambridge A’level and pre-degree, you must pass through JAMB. Hence, UTME and cut off mark therefrom is compulsory.

What is your fate on JAMB Cut off mark if you’re chasing admission into colleges of health Tech then?

Colleges of health or school of hygiene, as a matter of fact, are partly under JAMB and partly independent. In short, it depends on the courses you’re chasing there and their admission policies.

Let me explain.

Colleges of Health Technology are categorised as Monotechnics under JAMB. For example below are the links to the list of Monotechnics throughout the nation.

If you check through the list you will see that a majority are colleges of health science and technology.

Colleges of Health Technology and a few other Monotechnics run three programmes namely;
  • National Diploma (ND)
  • Higher National Diploma (HND)
  • Certificate Courses (e.g CHEW, Environmental Health, Diploma courses etc)

Any college of health you find above is under JAMB and will require JAMB UTME or specific cut off mark before admitting for her National Diploma (ND) courses, but only SSCE results for certificate courses.

Colleges of Health Technology that Need JAMB Cut Off Marks

Having checked the screening and entrance admission adverts of some of the colleges, I find that some will split their programmes to those that require JAMB and those without JAMB.

For examples, below is a list of those accepting JAMB for some courses and not for the others and those that want JAMB strictly.
  1. Delta State College of Health Technology (strictly through JAMB)
  2. College of Health Sciences and Technology, Ijero-Ekiti. (some courses through JAMB and some open to non-JAMB candidates)
  3. OAU School of Information Technology Management (strictly through JAMB)
  4. POGIL College of Health Technology (some courses through JAMB and some open to non-JAMB candidates)
  5. Ogun State College of Health Technology. (some courses through JAMB and some open to non-JAMB candidates)
  6. UNILORIN Teaching Hospital College of Information Management. (some courses through JAMB and some open to non-JAMB candidates)

This post can’t detail all of them though. Yet, I have a way to guide you on which is which. Kindly check for the adverts of a school you propose, go through their courses and see where they demand JAMB and where they don’t.

Colleges of Technology That Won’t Need JAMB

Some schools, however, won’t require JAMB for their admissions. This could be because a majority of them are not yet under the control of JAMB. This doesn’t mean they’re not approved; they are just yet to be under the body's control.

Another reason for that may be because they’re not running Ordinary and Higher National Diploma courses. Rather, their courses are certificate and diploma courses. See the Differences in Diploma, National Diploma (ND) and Advanced Diploma

For example:
  1. Osun State College of Health Technology Ilesa
  2. Kwara State College of Health, Offa
  3. Lagos State College of Health Technology
  4. Oyo State School of Hygiene (Eleleye)
  5. Ondo State School Of Health Technology


In summary, an admission seeker to any college of health technology or sciences should check the school portals for their admission requirements. There, you should take note of courses that need no JAMB UTME or possible cut off marks. And if you just click through the link of each sample colleges in this post, you should find this out on the resulting pages.
