JAMB Transfer Approval 2025/2026: The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is the body that conducts the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and the Direct Entry (DE) for admission into various institutions of higher learning in Nigeria. JAMB also oversees the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS), an online platform allowing candidates to monitor and accept or reject their admission offers.

Sometimes, JAMB may transfer a candidate from one course or institution to another based on the availability of spaces, the candidate’s performance, or the institution’s preferences. This is known as JAMB transfer approval. In this article, we will explain JAMB transfer approval, how to check it, how to accept or reject it, and some frequently asked questions about it.

What is JAMB Transfer Approval?

JAMB transfer approval is a process whereby JAMB changes a candidate’s course or institution of choice to another one, either within the same institution or to a different one. This may happen for various reasons, such as:

  • The candidate did not meet the cut-off mark or the specific requirements for the original course or institution.
  • The original course or institution is oversubscribed and there are no more spaces available.
  • The candidate’s performance in the UTME or the post-UTME screening is below the expected standard for the original course or institution.
  • The candidate’s original course or institution is not accredited or approved by the relevant authorities.
  • The candidate’s original course or institution is not in line with the candidate’s O’level results or subject combinations.
  • The candidate’s original course or institution is not compatible with the candidate’s preferred career path or future goals.
  • The candidate’s original course or institution is not the candidate’s first choice or preferred option.
  • The candidate’s original course or institution is not available or offered by the institution.
