How Long Does JAMB Regularization Take to Be Approved?

Possible Place Where You Have the Delay in the Regularisation Process
JAMB logo
Some prospective DE applicants and graduates are frustrated with the delay in the approvals of their regularisations.

They were done with online registrations. They’d submitted the indemnity form to the schools but no approvals yet sent to their emails. And if you'd not submitted the indemnity form to your institution, regularization is not yet completed. You have to do that before expecting approval in the first place.

Some had taken more than a month after submitting the regularisation printout to their schools. Some had waited for more than a year. Returning back to their schools, they could not understand if the delay was from JAMB or their schools.

In most cases, schools will blame the delay on JAMB. And if you visit the nearest JAMB office, they will say it’s the school's fault. This is why a candidate may be asking, "how long does JAMB regularisation take before the approval?"

So, whose fault? How long will regularisation approval take for real? Who is delaying the approval?

The answer according to JAMB is in this post. Let's dive into it.

Possible Place Where You Have the Delay in the Regularisation Process

In brief, this is the procedure for JAMB regularisation.
  1. You visit a café, CBT centre, or JAMB office to register
  2. After the application, they give you an indemnity form
  3. This will be taken to your previous school for signing, stamping, and approval.
  4. The school then sends the form to the right JAMB office for approval.
  5. JAMB approves it and sends you an email notification that you’d successfully done your regularisation with approval given.
  6. Then, you’re instructed to print your JAMB admission letters after being given a new JAMB registration number or renew the old one you applied with.

That’s all.

With the procedures above, the delay will usually happen between JAMB and your school. We have the knowledge that some schools usually wait for more and more candidates to submit their applications before they can send them in bulk to the JAMB office.

This is more likely going to be where the issue is. But you’re confused when the school denies and blames it on JAMB. They claim they'd sent it to JAMB and that JAMB has not just done its own part.

But what does JAMB say to this?

JAMB Claims Schools Delay Your Regularisations Approval

According to the matriculation board, they usually complete JAMB regularization approval within 24 hours of collecting the stamped indemnity forms from your schools.


If this is true, it’s obvious schools are unnecessarily delaying the forwarding of collected forms to JAMB.

Hence, if you must know where the problem is, go to your schools and complain. They need to be disturbed (more likely) before they can take the submission seriously.

And if truly your school had sent to JAMB and the board really attends within a day, it may be that the board had noticed a few errors or complaints regards the registration. Hence, it will return such indemnify forms for the institution to correct things before returning it back to JAMB.

This may be where you have a little delay.

    1. Once your school has sent it to the JAMB office, it's in JAMB's hands. Just wait for the email from the board.

  10. Sir I submitted my jamb regularisation form November 2020, but when u checked my jamb portal its showed document nees to be rescinded. Then I sent a maim to my school and they asked me to reprint it again, which i did but I went back to jamb office in Ibadan for tgen to change the name of the VC in which they did and I submitted it to School 18th February, 2021. But the thing I dont understand is that my payment history has been wiped and also I really need to be part of the Nysc Bath A. But they told me that it would take 3weeks for jamb to approve it and this week it would make it 2 weeks of submission but some of my colleagues whi submitted last year just got there own approval today. I really don't know what else to do.

    1. To know if it has been approved, JAMB will send an email to you to notify of the approval. Not that you will not see NA or something.

    7. You have to be sure you submit it to your school and see to it whether the school has sent it to JAMB.

      In that case, you can send complaint message to JAMB.
