JAMB Change of Course or Institution – You’ve come to the correct place if you recently finished registering for the 2024 Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board’s (JAMB) Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and you noticed a mistake in your application or would like to change your course or institution choice.

JAMB Change of Course or Institution

Changing your name, date of birth, gender, state or LGA of origin, passport photo, subjects, profile, and course or institution choices are just a few of the many ways you can update your personal information. This blog post attempts to provide a comprehensive how-to guide.

Understanding JAMB Change of Course/Institution

Students who want to switch their university both before and after the UTME can do so by completing the JAMB change of institution form, which is provided by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board.

Candidates who would like to look into other options after not being accepted into their first-choice university sometimes utilize this form.

Candidates who wish to switch from a less-favored university to a more-favored university might also benefit from it.

To apply for a JAMB Change of Institution, candidates must first fulfill the prerequisites for eligibility established by JAMB. These prerequisites include having a JAMB profile, paying a fee, and meeting the necessary cut-off marks for the new institution they intend to transfer to.


Who Can Apply?

The site has been made available to individuals who want to change the university they selected for their matriculation by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

Candidates for the UTME who want to transfer from their current institution to a different one can now do so.

The JAMB Change of Institution form is available for just N2,500 (two thousand five hundred naira).
