Starting/Closing Date for JAMB Regularization?

JAMB Regularization Starting Date
JAMB logo
When you ask if the JAMB regularisation or JAMB late application is out or what will be the closing date, I see someone:


  1. who was offered admssion into a university, polytechnic, or college of education but not through JAMB UTME/DE,
  2. who has completed a part-time ND or NCE programme but wish to further to BSC through the JAMB Direct entry form
  3. who has completed the HND or BSC but for the purpose of NYSC mobilization will need to regularize his or her admission with JAMB


Whichever is your case, you will want to know whether it's time to register for the JAMB regularisation or you need to wait till a particular date of the year. And if the form is already out, when it's likely to close.

JAMB Regularization Starting Date

There is no specific starting date when JAMB regularization or late application will commence. The form is all-year-round available for the concerned candidates. Hence, you can initiate the application at any time of the year.


However, because of the parties involved, there could be a delay in the registration until all mechanisms seem ready to favor the processes. 


For example, to regularize your admission, you need the services of:

  1. an accredited CBT center or JAMB office where you'll register online and be given the "indemnity form" after the online submission
  2. the initiating institution e.g the polytechnic, college of education, etc that you will submit the indemnity form to, then sign and forward to JAMB
  3. JAMB headquarters Abuja that will look into your application and approve or reject it.


Now, there will be a delay in your registration and/or approval if any of these parties is not available or not in session. 


Let's see the cases we witnessed in the 2020 JAMB regularization or late application exercise.


  1. While institutions were locked down, those schools weren't available to accept the indemnity forms from candidates for signing and submission to the JAMB headquarters.
  2. At a time a few schools resumed to attend but very many CBT centers were not available for the registrations in the first place
  3. There was actually a time when JAMB offices would tell the candidates to wait till academic activities resume nationwide before processing their JAMB late applications (regularization).


Therefore, even though there was no particular date, day, or month when JAMB regularization would start yearly, delays in academic activities and related cases may force you to wait till the atmosphere is favorable.

JAMB Regularization Doesn't Close

In case you're worried that the exercise may end any time sooner, I have good news for you. JAMB regularization never closes. As earlier noticed, it's a year-round activity. So, no closing date.


However, since you will need it for specific activities such as Direct entry application, NYSC registration, etc, you should do yours at the right time in order to buy enough time for the processes involved. 


Don't forget that after the online application, at the CBTE center, you have to submit it to the institution you attended or attending. They will also sign it and send it to the JAMB office in the state. And from there to the Abuja office. This may take a few days or weeks. It may also be delayed further at the headquarters before the final approval if not eventually rejected.


Hence, being earlier is better. These activities may take a few months.
