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

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.
