Universities will be Discipline over irregular Admission – JAMB and NUC Blows Hot

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) have been receiving calls to call off their strike, and even sanctions over their prolong strike, and this time around, it’s coming directly from JAMB and NUC.

Latest report reaching us today is that all Universities in Nigeria affected by the ASUU strike have been warned by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board and other three regulatory agencies for tertiary education in the country, namely:

  1. National Universities Commission (NUC).
  2. National Board for Technical Education (NBTE).
  3. National Commission for Colleges of Education,

against selling application forms for the conduct of the 2022/2023 admissions.

The warning was reportedly issued to stop the high rate of irregular admissions conducted by institutions. The agencies also said that all applications must be routed through the Central Admissions Processing System, also known as JAMB CAPS.

This information was shared in a memo titled  “Serialisation of guidelines for the 2022 admissions exercise.”

It read;

“All applications of admissions to First Degree, National Diploma, National Innovation Diploma and the Nigeria Certificate in Education into Full-Time, Distance Learning, Part-Time, Outreach, Sandwich, etc., must be processed only through JAMB.”
