The new journey begins, below is a list of the next steps to take after accepting your admission on JAMB CAPS before you can resume and things to do when you resume as regards freshers registration. Ensure to read to the end.

Printing of JAMB Admission Letter

Once you accept admission on JAMB CAPs, you’ll be required to make payment on the JAMB portal to print your JAMB admission letter. For those who were transferred to another course, they’ll be required to change the course at an accredited CBT center to the new course before they can print the admission letter. After this, you’ll be on lookout to know if the next step has started.

Activation of Freshers Registration Portal

Once a candidate accepted admission on JAMB CAPs, he/she waits for some days for the school ICT to upload their data on the students’ portal (OAU eportal). This process takes some days, and once the name shows on the portal, the candidate can proceed to make payment for school fees and also do online registration. At this time, you’re now a bona-fide student of OAU.

Your name will show up with your picture and course if your data has been uploaded to the portal. Having confirmed this, let’s move to the next step.

Payment of School Fees

Before anything is done further, you must pay your school fees to have access to other forms on your portal. The school fees can be paid in full and instalments i.e half the amount first then the other amount later. The remaining half can be paid in either first or second semester. This means you’ll be able to proceed with registration when you pay at least half of your school fees. Please note, OAU DOES NOT PAY ACCEPTANCE FEE.

If granted ” a notification on the page will say “Congratulations, your bedspace allocation has been granted”, if there’s no space again, the response will be “available bedspaces has exhausted”

However, this bedspace is not yours completely until you do the next step, which is payment.

Registration of students at the faculty level is done by the faculty secretaries of the school, and do not require any payment, although some faculties charge for it.

The details on how the ICT training will be communicated to you. Batch A was required to complete a 4 of 5 days training program. Batch B students will also be required to take the 5-day training.

A lesser duration taken will deny you the approval to print the ICT training certificate on your portal. then you must do it next year if not done the initial year. This process is as compulsory as others.

Online Course Registration for Freshers

The course registration is open to all Batch A at the moment but they are not allowed to select their Special Elective Courses due to the delay with the Batch B Admission Processes. There are possibilities you’ll be able to do course registration with online registration process.

The minimum units you can register is 15 while the maximum is 24. Once exceeded, you won’t be able to submit. You are also to do special electives (subordinate courses, 12 units before graduation), these electives are competitive because only 2000 students can register for each of them per semester and it’s the reason people rush to the portal when course registration is open.
