Let’s say you’re about to obtain a PT form (such as a daily part-time or a regular one) in a polytechnic or college of education. Then, your plan is to cross to a university after your two-year or three-year course on a part-time basis. To cross, of course, you will need to obtain DE form and process the admission into any favorable university. Is this possible for you?
Of course, with this question, you’re already aware that it’s possible for candidates attending a full-time ND or NCE programme. Undoubtedly, you don’t know the fate of their part-time counterparts on this.
This post will take you by hand and show you what you need to know if you aim to go for a part-time ND or NCE or you’re already in it if the Direct Entry application will be possible for you after.
Part-Time Candidates Can Apply for Direct Entry
In the case of NCE a part-time graduate, you’re more likely to further your education to a university through Direct entry or to other programmes such as part-time degree, sandwich, distance-learning or National Open University.
Hence, it safe to conclude that in order for part-time students to cross to universities, they need to obtain DE form too just like their full-time counterparts. This post contains other things to know.
There are certain conditions attached to this. Let’s dive into them.
Part-Time Students Must Do Regularization or JAMB Part-Time Application
This doesn’t mean you have to sit and write another UTME now. No! You will only apply to JAMB to give you a new number which you will use for your DE application.
NOTE: If you did JAMB in the year of your PT admission, you still need to apply for a new JAMB number or apply for revalidation of that old JAMB number.
JAMB Regularization is for “Before-2019 Candidates”

JAMB Part-time Application is for “2019-and-After Candidates”
This method was recently introduced in order to reduce the stress candidates are being exposed to because of regularization.
Details of how to do part-time registration on the JAMB portal is well detailed in my post, “How to Register JAMB Part-Time, JAMB DLC and JAMB Sandwich”
