The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) hosts Nigeria’s most prominent entrance examinations: the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) examination.

Every year millions of Nigerian students apply for one university or the other via any of the exams mentioned above.

And during registration, several students end up making one mistake or the other. Or, probably, they, later on, change their minds about the university they want to study at or the course they wish to study.

Thank goodness! JAMB has a portal where students can change their course or desired institution whenever they feel the need.

Here we’ll share with you all the steps you must follow to change your course, institution, or personal data without mistakes. Also, we’ll tell you all the requirements and the cost implication of changing any data you originally applied with.

Reasons you might consider changing your course, institution, or other application data?


Reason 1: You made a mistake while registering your JAMB profile information and personal data.

For example, you used the wrong date of birth or mixed up one of your names; then, we advise you to correct them. And the only way to do that is by following the steps we mentioned above.

Reason 2: Loss of interest/change of mind on institution or course

Several students at some point — due to one reason or the other — decide they no longer want the course or institution they applied for.

In that case, it is better to complete your JAMB change of course/institution as possible.

Reason 3: Your JAMB score is too low

If you scored lower than the cutoff mark for your course or institution, then it is very much appropriate to apply for a change.

For instance, if you applied for Medicine and ended up scoring just 180, then your chances of gaining admission for Medicine will become slim. In that case, it’ll be very wise to request a change.

However, some institutions will offer you admission to another course if you have discovered that you scored a lower mark than the course you applied for but qualify for another. So, Reason 3 is not necessary.

JAMB change of course starting and closing date

Start date:

Students can begin to apply for a change of course, institution, or personal data immediately; their result is out.

Closing date:

There’s no specific closing date for now; however, we advise you to check to ensure the university you are changing to has not finished conducting their post UTME / admission.

Other points to note

You can correct the following only once:

  • Name
  • Date of Birth
  • State of Origin
  • Passport photograph
  • UTME subject combination
  • Gender
  • And additional profile information

But you have the opportunity to change your course/institution two times, albeit at the cost of 2500 naira each.
