After Accepting Transfer Approval On JAMB CAPS
After accepting the admission offered to your through JAMB transfer approval portal, these are what you should do next…
1. Wait For Admission To Reflect On JAMB CAPS
After approving the transfer on JAMB’s transfer approval page of your CAPS, it takes about a week for the admission to finally reflect officially on your JAMB admission status where you can then ACCEPT or REJECT the admission.
It will be wrong of you to think that approving the admission is all you need to do, because it is just one stage of the admission status.
Once you approve the admission on the approval page, the information will be sent to your school admission officer which then proceed with the official reassignment of you to your new course.
2. Apply For JAMB Change Of Course
After approving JAMB transfer request and accepting the admission on your CAPS, you have two (2) weeks to apply for JAMB change of course to the new course you have been offered provisional admission into.
If you try checking your JAMB admission status after you have approved of the transfer, you will get a response saying “You must apply for change of course/institution before printing your JAMB admission letter, the admission can be revoked if the change is NOT effected online within 2 weeks “
You can end up losing your admission if you don’t change your course after two weeks of accepting JAMB transfer approval admission.
Luckily, I have a guide explaining all the necessary you need to take to process your Change of course/institution on JAMB portal.
3. Print JAMB admission letter
Once you have succeeded in changing your JAMB course to the newly offered one, you should proceed with payment for JAMB admission letter as you will be needing it later on.
For those who may not how to go about this, you can see how to print JAMB admission letter yourself here.
4. Wait For Admission To Reflect On Your School Portal
Once you have successfully applied for change of course and print your JAMB admission letter, the next thing to do is to wait for the admission to reflect on the Portal of your school of choice.
As I explained in the difference between JAMB and school admission, both parties work hand in hand to admit students, so once the admission officer of a school uploads the names of student considered for transfer approval to JAMB CAPS, the student will be given time to accept this request.
Once accepted, the admission is then uploaded to the school’s portal where he or she can then print school admission letter.
This upload sometimes takes weeks, so you must exercise patience.
After confirming and approving the provisional admission offered to you through transfer approval the next line of action is to; wait for the admission to reflect on JAMB CAPS and accept it, apply for change of course in JAMB and print your JAMB admission letter.
