Admission in progress in JAMB meaning and what you should do
“Admission in Progress” is a status that appears on the JAMB admission status checker when your institution is currently processing your admission. It means that your admission is not yet confirmed and that the institution is currently reviewing your application and supporting documents.
During this time, you should check your email and phone regularly as the institution may contact you for additional information or documents. You should also continue to monitor your JAMB admission status regularly to check for updates.
It’s important to note that “Admission in Progress” is not a guarantee of admission, and the final decision on your admission will be made by the institution.
It’s also worth to note that some institutions might have set a deadline for the submission of credentials, it’s important to adhere to such deadline and make sure you submit all the required documents as at when due.

Yes, it is possible for an admission status of “Admission in Progress” to change to “Not Admitted” on the JAMB admission status checker, though 99% of AIP normally changes to admitted.

If your JAMB CAP (Central Admissions Processing) portal is showing that you have not been admitted, you should first check to make sure that you have been given admission by the institution to which you applied. If you have not, you should contact the institution’s admissions office to inquire about the status of your application (this is not really possible unless you have connections, the best option is to wait for the admission list to come out).
