There have been instances where students have failed to receive their admission because they were unaware that they had been accepted. This post is intended to provide candidates with information on the various methods by which they can be notified of their admission status by their preferred school.
This post will outline and explain five different methods by which candidates can determine whether or not they have been offered admission by a particular school.
5 Ways Candidates can Check If They have been Offered Admission By Any School
1. SMS notification: During the Post-UTME or admission registration process, most schools will require you to provide your active phone number. Many of these schools will notify you via text message if you have been offered admission by sending a text message to the phone number you provided when you applied for admission. As a result, it is recommended that candidates provide their active phone numbers when applying for admission.
2. Email Notification: Many schools, like phone numbers, require candidates to provide their email addresses when applying for admission. This medium is also used to send admission notifications to candidates. The unfortunate reality is that many candidates rarely check their emails. If you are an admissions seeker, it is recommended that you regularly check your email address in case your school chooses to send admission notifications via email.
3. JAMB CAPS: The JAMB Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) allows prospective students seeking admission to various tertiary institutions to track their admission status and easily determine when they have been offered admission by any institution. I previously wrote a post to help candidates understand how to access the JAMB CAPS. Click on the following link: CAPS JAMB 2020: For more information, see Admission Status.
4. JAMB Matriculation List: This was introduced recently by Jamb. Candidates can check the JAMB Matriculation List portal to see if they have been offered admission and if their admission has been recognised by JAMB. I’ve also written a detailed post about it. Click on the following link: All Undergraduates JAMB Matriculation List – Check out this page to find out how to see if your name is on the matriculation list.
5. School Portal: Almost all of Nigeria’s tertiary institutions now have their websites. The majority of these schools announce the release of the admission list and publish the names of accepted students on their websites. Candidates seeking admission should be familiar with the official website of their preferred school and closely monitor it to learn when such admission announcements are made.
