Are you looking for how to get a JAMB registration number for part-time, sandwich or NOUN programmes?
The Joint admission and matriculation board, JAMB, has made it compulsory for candidates applying for admission into Part-time, Sandwich and National open university programmes to have a JAMB registration number before they can be offered admission.
In this article, you will learn how to apply for the JAMB registration number for Part-time, Sandwich and NOUN programmes.
Please note that applicants in these categories are not required to write a qualification exam with JAMB.
Also note that you must register even if you applied for the JAMB UTME exam in the current year or a previous year.
Why is JAMB Registration Compulsory?
JAMB is responsible for screening candidates who are applying to tertiary institutions in Nigeria. Before now, candidates applying for Part time, Sandwich or NOUN programmes only need to walk up to their choice of institution and pick up an application form.
By the time such student graduates, their names are not available with JAMB or any relevant educational body apart from the school where they finished from.
It is more like completely bypassing JAMB to get admission.
JAMB wants to put an end to this.
Henceforth, candidates of part-time, NOUN or Sandwich programmes are required to get a JAMB registration number but do not need to write an entrance exam with JAMB.
The whole process is to have every candidate’s details in the Joint admissions and matriculation boards database.
How to Get JAMB Registration Number
First of all, you have to create a JAMB profile. You can check our article on how to create a JAMB profile.
After creating your JAMB profile, visit the JAMB office in the state where you reside to complete your registration and get a JAMB registration number.
On getting to the JAMB office, make sure you tell the JAMB officials what you are applying for. If you want to use your JAMB registration number for Part-time studies, inform the JAMB official.
Do not register for a JAMB number through the NOUN or Sandwich programme when you need it for part-time admission or vice versa.
You will be charged about 3,700 Naira for this service.
Can I Apply for a JAMB Registration Number at a CBT Centre?
Legally, No. Only JAMB offices are authorised to register candidates for JAMB numbers. However, there are some CBT centres that back pass the process and complete the registration but you have to pay more than you will pay at the JAMB office.
If you reside in Lagos, you have to go to the JAMB office as early as possible to beat the crowd.
When is the Deadline for Registration?
Fortunately, there is no deadline for this registration. You can visit a JAMB office at any time of the year that you need this number to apply.
