NOUN, Part-time, Sandwich & Distance Learning candidates can apply through accredited centres

Following the request from the Computer Based Test centre owners to be allowed to perform certain specialised operations and further broaden access to the Board services, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board(JAMB) has decided to allow all accredited Computer-Based Centres to handle one of its critical operations that was, hitherto, restricted to only JAMB offices nationwide.

Consequently, with effect from Tuesday, 22nd, February 2022, candidates can visit any CBT centre nearest to them nationwide to access this particular service.

NOUN, Part-time, Sandwich & Distance Learning candidates can apply through accredited centres

The particular service being liberalised is the registration of candidates who wish to obtain application forms for Part-Time, Sandwich, National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) and Distance Learning programmes.

As a proactive agency, the Board decides to decongest the huge crowds being witnessed at its various facilities.

With this, candidates do not have to visit the Board’s offices for this particular service as it can be obtained at all registered CBT centres nationwide.

Accredited CBT centres are, by this announcement, cautioned not to charge more than the regulated N700 service charge for registration into the aforementioned programmes.

These categories of candidates are not part of the newly-introduced cashless policy and, are, therefore, to pay N700 at  the registration point using ATM cards.

However, UTME/DE candidates are to note that the service charge for the application documents is already included as part of their e-PIN fees in line.
