The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has warned tertiary institutions against sale of admission forms to candidates seeking admission.
The board stressed that admission application forms for full-time and part-time courses must be routed through JAMB.
A circular to heads of tertiary institutions and admissions officers titled “Serialisation of guidelines for the 2022 admissions exercise continues,” said applications for admission to first degree, national diploma, national innovation diploma and the Nigeria certificate in education into full-time, distance learning, part-time, outreach, sandwich and others must be processed only through JAMB.
The board warned heads of institutions that illegal/irregular admissions must stop forthwith
“No institution should advertise or sell ‘application forms’ for admissions into the programmes. Institutions should advertise candidates to apply to them through Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB). Duplication of application forms is not allowed,” the board stated.
The memo on the 2022 admissions said JAMB and the three other regulatory agencies, the National Universities Commission (NUC), National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) and National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE), would ensure that all tertiary institutions comply with this policy directive.
The circular said that professional regulatory agencies would also play a role in sanitizing the process.
