How Long Does JAMB Regularisation Take to Be Approved?

Possible Place Where You Have the Delay in the Regularisation Process

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 the 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.
