The Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Distance Learning Centre (DLC) management has published the procedure for admitted candidates to regularize their admission with the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

JAMB Regularization for Candidates Admitted  into ABU Distance Learning Programmes

All new students are expected to visit the nearest JAMB state office in their state of domicile with their relevant documents of admission to regularize their admissions. This should be done unfailingly immediately after the conclusion of screening and admission before the commencement of their first examination in the Centre.

It should be noted that the above procedure for the regularization can only be done in a state office of JAMB and not in a JAMB CBT accredited Centre. The JAMB presently charged N3,500 for the service. This is without prejudice to any adjustments that may be made by JAMB in the future.

In conclusion of the above procedure and acquisition of a JAMB regularization number, the evidence as provided by JAMB should be submitted to the liaison offices or sent to the Secretary’s office at the Distance Learning Centre’s Headquarters for further processing.
