What is Transfer Approval on Jamb CAPS?

The JAMB transfer approval is basically an option to allows the candidate to be offered admission into a new course aside from their preferred choice of course or institution. This could be as a result of various factors such as a change in course, request for candidates, consideration of applicants (etc) by the institution. For instance, Ade choose medicine and surgery but was offered admission in Microbiology by the institution.

How do I check if I was Transferred?

  • Log in to your JAMB e-facility portal,
  • Click on “Transfer Approval” located at the left menu tab
  • A notification will be displayed stating if you have or not

If yours doesn’t bring any notification upon the click, then you are not in this category, simply click on How to check Admission Status on JAMB CAPS

Why did Unilorin give me Transfer Approval on Jamb CAPS?

It basically suggests that Unilorin has considered you for admission, but this time for a different course. You fall into this category if you either made a change of course when registering for the post utme on the Unilorin portal or you didn’t meet the quota/requirement for the course you initially chose but the University still deemed it fit to consider you for a different course.

How do I accept or reject admission on Jamb CAPS?

You are then expected to either ACCEPT or REJECT the offer given by the University of Ilorin. Once you do accept the offer it means that you will be considered for admission to the new program, then Jamb will forward your details to Unilorin to include your name in its list. Failure to accept this before expiration means you have rejected the offer and the program transfer initiated by Unilorin will not be effected.

What should I do next?

Once approved, your Jamb Admission CAPS will still remain at NOT ADMITTED for a while but later to ADMISSION IN PROGRESS. Similarly, the CONGRATULATORY message of being admitted must show before it becomes visible on your UNILORIN portal.

NOTE: To does who accepted it, not to worry, you might not see a change in the admission status section because this is your own medium of acceptance.

Final step

Since you have accepted the offer, the new programme will be assigned to your JAMB portal hence, it is compulsory that you make a change your course to the approved transfer from your Jamb portal. ( If this is not done your admission might be rejected)

We, therefore, advise that you do the needful ASAP, however, if you are not sure if you fall in this category simply login to your portal and click on TRANSFER.
