The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, says the admission processes for 2017/2018 will commence on Sept.15 and close on Jan.31, 2018.
The Head of JAMB Information and Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria in Bwari, Abuja, on Friday.
Benjamin said that the direct entry applications for admission would close Sept. 15.
He explained that students could only secure admission after they might have passed through the rudiments of admission processes.
“We have come up with Central Admission Processing System this year.
“This entails that once candidates are admitted and the institution approves, then JAMB will approve, the information about the candidates will be keyed into CAPS automatically.
“Candidates can monitor their admission process through CAPS online and those who want to get admission letter can do so by printing such online.’’
According to him, CAPS will make record gathering easy and give easy access to students to print their admission letters among other things.
“What we are trying to do now is that we are looking at the perimeter realistically; we decided to come up with new strategy aimed at ensuring the actual data.”
