JAMB Regularization 2020 Guidelines, Login Portal, Fee & Deadline

JAMB Regularization is the former name for Late Application. It provides opportunity for candidates that are in any institution, but with no JAMB Registration number.

This service is available on the JAMB Portal. It is not free!

This service will cost you a sum of ten thousand naira (N10,000) only.

Without a JAMB Registration number, students of any institution will not be offered JAMB Admission, and subsequently, will not have the opportunity to go for NYSC Application.

This article will educate you on the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB)  Regularization Guidelines, fees and deadline for application. It will give you a step-by-step explanation of the JAMB 2020 regularization.
