Jamb Direct Entry/NYSC Regularization Meaning, Procedures And Deadline

Jamb Direct Entry/NYSC Regularization Meaning, Procedures And Deadline

I just felt this is the right time to talk about this once and for all, since most of this year prospective direct entry applicants keep asking for what is the meaning of Jamb regularization, jamb regularization deadline, jamb regularization fee and how to get jamb regularization number. Since this is new to most people, I will use this post to discuss all about regularization.

Before, there was nothing like Jamb regularization.

Then, if you are a direct entry applicant then, all you need to do is to obtain your DE form from Jamb office and fill the form appropriately. You don’t even need to go to cafe because you can do it with your phone since there was no biometric.

Now the story has completely changed. Direct  entry registration has became more tough. Jamb has introduced Biometric capturing and Jamb regularization.

So What Is Jamb Regularization or Late Application?

The only question that will come to your mind when you heard of this phrase is ”What is Jamb regularization?

This simply means reconciliation of your OND/ND/NCE/HND admission between your institution and Jamb. I hope you understand what I mean? In case you don’t, let me explain Jamb regularization in another way.

Note that, JAMB regularisation is also known as LATE APPLICATION on JAMB website.

Meaning Of Regularization In Practical

When you got admission into your previous school, Polytechnic, College of Education or any other ones. There are chances that your polytechnic or college of education
admitted you then without Jamb’s Knowledge or approval. This could happened in two ways:

1. You were admitted as a part time student who did not write jamb to secure the admission. So you don’t even have Jamb number.

2. You wrote Jamb and you got admission but your school did not notify Jamb of your admission. Even though you have Jamb number.

Whatever the situation is, you are in the same problem.Read: Can I Gain Admission Without Jamb Regularization With Direct Entry?

How To Know You Have Regularization Problem Before You Obtain Direct Entry Form

This is not funny, because you might not have been aware if not that you want to obtain direct entry form, or you want to go to NYSC.To know if you have this problem. Follow the steps below:

  1. Go to
  2. Scroll to the year you wrote your jamb (e.g 2013)
  3. Click on Check admission Status
  4. Enter your Jamb number and click enter.

Note: The above procedures is to be carried out only by those who have a Jamb number. In case you were a part time students then, you entered without taking Jamb, don’t bother to check. I will tell you what to do.

Either you have Jamb number or part time students, you are both in the same problem.
