JAMB Sets 2020 Admission Deadline for All Schools

JAMB Admission Deadline has been announced for the 2020/2021 admission exercise. See the deadline below.

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has disclosed that all admissions in the nation’s tertiary institutions for the 2020/2021 Academic Session would end by 15th June, 2021.

According to Dr Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s Head, Media and Information, this decision was collectively taken at a virtual meeting with Heads of Tertiary Institutions in the country on Wednesday, 24th February 2021.

Speaking during the meeting, the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, said the meeting with the institutions was aimed at knowing the level they had reached on the 2020/21 admissions scale and to put necessary machinery in place for the 2021/2022 UTME/DE Registration Exercise,

In his words, “After a robust and insightful deliberation, members collectively agreed that all public universities are expected to finish their admissions on or before 15th May, 2021, while the private universities and all IEIs, polytechnics and COEs would complete theirs at the agreed date of 15th June, 2021.

Prof. Oloyede reminded the stakeholders that the chosen deadlines remained sacrosanct and binding on all institutions as the Board would not tolerate any breaches of the collective decision reached at the meeting.

The JAMB Registrar also disclosed that the Board would announce in a week’s time the commencement date for the sale of application documents for the 2021/2022 Academic Session.

Meanwhile, the Board has urged all institutions to adhere strictly to all advisories issued to them on inter/intra-university transfers, foreign inter-university transfers and fresh foreign candidates, change of programmes and institutions and other essential processes related to admission in order to avoid unnecessary bickerings that could endanger the future of innocent candidates and their subsequent mobilization for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). He added these advisories and procedures were to serve as guides for them on how to handle the various issues as they arose.
