After JAMB Change of Course & Institution

I get many questions from students who recently did a JAMB Change of Course or Institution about their inability to register for their Institution of Choice Post UTME examinations.

It would take a few days to about a week for the changes you have made on the JAMB portal to reflect on your profile and register for the Post UTME screening.

The good news is that Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education in Nigeria would always ensure that all students can register for their screening exercise.

Ask me any questions in the comment box. Let me know if you are facing any challenges with the JAMB Change of Course or Institution form.

      It is not compulsory. It is for those who did not meet the cut-off mark of their courses in the institution of their choice.
      They can either change their course or institution of study so they’ll get admitted.

    I did my jamb in 2017 but I applied for a change of course to enable me print a new jamb admission letter having a barcode. Jamb and my school gave me admission in my present course but my first choice is different. It’s been 4 days and the change is not yet reflecting In my jamb portal and I don’t have the change of course slip printed out.

      I recommend you use the email appearing on your Jamb Portal to open a new email address if it is still available.

      That is the best way to change your Email.

    Reply
    • Hello Promise,

      It takes a couple of weeks for the JAMB correction of name to reflect on the JAMB portal.

      Whether or not the changes reflect, use the correct name for your Post UTME registration.

      Goodness,

      A waiver happens when you cannot submit your secondary school transcript.

      The institution can offer you admission without the transcript certificate.

      Let me know if you have any further questions.
