Will Schools Send Admissions to My Email or Through SMS?

When candidates start to expect their admissions, they tend to ask how will their schools send admission notice to them. Will my school sends me an SMS, call me or send email messages to inform me if admitted?


When I gave you how to check your admission status on the JAMB and school portal, a few students also asked if they should be on the lookout for SMS or emails congratulating them on admissions.


This post will clear the air on whether your school will inform you of the admission lists through email, SMS, or call.

Very Many Institutions Won't Send SMS or Email About Being Offered Admissions

If I must give you a figure, I should say about 90% of Nigerian universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education won't send email messages or SMS to their aspirants if offered admissions.


These institutions consider all aspirants as being familiar with the system of checking the admission status on the JAMB CAPS and on the school portal.


Of course, it's a norm that candidates should be regularly checking their CAPS and news conners of their schools' admission portals for updates on whether admission lists are out or not yet.


For example, the Federal Polytechnic Ilaro will always drop the admission list news on the news board on its website homepage. Very many schools will do the same. The Federal Polytechnic Ede, Obafemi Awolowo University, etc usually leave links right on the admission portals where candidates can click, enter their JAMB registration numbers, and check their status.


And for some others, candidates will have to be logging in to their individual admission portals and click on the dashboard link that says "CHECK ADMISSION STATUS" or simply, "CHECK STATUS". Such schools include the Kwara State Polytechnic, Kwara State University, Ladoke Akintola UniversityEkiti State University, etc.

A Very Few Schools Still Send SMS and Email to Update

The rest 10% (the fictitious figure) will, of course, go further to send candidates SMS and emails for the admission list updates. 


The Ogun State College of Health Technology usually sends email messages enlisting the numbers of candidates offered admissions.


ICT Gateway Polytechnic had been known for sending SMS to update aspirants when offered admissions. This is also common among most private-owned universities, polytechnics, colleges of education, and Innovative Enterprise Institutes (IEI).

Candidates of the Shools Sending SMS or Emails Still Need the School Portal and CAPS checking

Even though the laziest means to be checking your admission status or expecting the good news is through SMS and emails, every aspirant should know that checking on the school admission portal and JAMB CAPS is general. And these are the most conventional methods.


Hence, if you seek admission this year, even though your school may send you an admission alert on phone or through email, you still need to check the same list on the school portal and the JAMB CAPS.


Don't forget, some SMS and email admission updates may be fake. Scammers are all around us. Hence, you must be careful in believing everything you see on your phone. 

Conclusion

If you use the conventional methods of checking directly on the school portal and JAMB CAPS, you will not end up accepting a fake admission. Remember that JAMB has warned aspirants not to accept fake admission i.e admission not given on CAPS.
