JAMB Change of Institution /course for 2021/2022 Academic session

We are so much pleased to inform the general public especially candidates who participated in the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) that the portal for the change of course/institution and correction of data is opened.

How Much are Changes of Course/Institution done?

Candidates that are also interested in changing their course or institution should take note that the cost of the form is just Two thousand Five Hundred Naira Only (N2,500).

Be sure of the Course and Institution you are likely to change. Verify if the course is available in the school using the JAMB Brochure in the official.

Note that:

If you have any issues in getting the JAMB brochure, just ask us using the comment box below and we will definitely gladly answer you.

Ensure you verify that the school that you are changing to does not usually have a cut-off mark higher than your own score.

Ensure that a better Course/Institution is in line with your subject’s combination to avoid being screened out during your school’s admission screening exercise.

You can change one or all your courses/institutions at the same time if you wish.

You can also use the one-time payment of N 2,500 to change your institution as well, course, name, date of birth, State, and Local Government of origin.

The things you can however correct and how many times you can correct them:

  1. Names (once)
  2. Date of Birth (once)
  3. Passport (once)
  4. Gender (once)
  5. State/LGA (once)
  6. Profile (once)
  7. Choice of Institution/Course (Correction can only be done twice with separate payments)
