How to ACCEPT or REJECT Admission on JAMB CAPS 2021

Candidates pursuing admission into different universities/polytechnics/colleges/other tertiary institutions in Nigeria are informed that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has activated the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) portal where UTME and Direct Entry candidates can accept/reject their admission offer and also monitor their admission.

According to JAMB’S policy, all admission would be made online through the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS); consequently, all candidates pursuing admission into Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges of Education and Other tertiary institutions in Nigeria for the 2020/2021 Academic Session are advised to visit the JAMB CAPS portal to check their admission status and also indicate the acceptance or rejection of their admission.

NOTE: Once you accept the admission, your admission pursuit is over as you will no longer be available for other schools’ admission consideration. Similarly, if you reject the admission, you become available to other schools with free admission slots for admission consideration.


  1. Go to the JAMB E-facility portal at
  2. Supply your Email Address and Password in the required columns and then log in.
  3. Then locate and click on ‘Check Admission Status‘.
  4. Select your examination year, supply your JAMB registration number in the required column and then click on the ‘Access my CAPS‘ button.
  5. Select ‘Admission Status‘ on the left panel.
  6. Locate and click on the ‘Search’ button in front of your JAMB Registration Number to load your profile.
  7. You can now accept/reject your admission offer under ‘Admission Profile’.
