JAMB Change Of Course Form - All You Need To Know

As candidates are heading towards admission, there are various things candidates should understand.

The idea of change of course form was implemented by Jamb to make admission process easier and less competitive.

Why JAMB Candidates May Want To Change Course or Institutions?
Every year, candidates apply for JAMB change of course/institutions for a number of reasons. Top on the list is low UTME score – which may not be up to the school’s cut-off marks.

Other reasons candidates change their courses and institutions is incomplete O’ level results, mistakes during registration or even change of mind about the institution or courses previously chosen.

To go to JAMB online page to change your Course and/or institution, follow the steps below.

JAMB Change of Course/Institution Procedures
First of all, you need to go to any commercial bank or JAMB Offices to purchase the change of course/institution scratch card. The scratch card is being sold for N2,500 (two thousand five hundred naira only).

Also note that you can only use accredited JAMB registration centers to do the change of course/institution. You cannot use any cyber cafe or just any computer center.

  • Go to JAMB Website at
  • Click on Change of Course/Institution
  • You can also go straight to the page here.
  • Enter candidate Username in the provided field

NOTE: Candidates trying to change their course and/or institution on JAMB website should do so accurately and decisively as this process is sensitive and CAN ONLY BE DONE ONCE.

Candidates are also advised to change their courses or institutions at registered JAMB registration centres. Doing so at random centres is at the candidates risk.

Closing Date For The Change?
The closing date for the chance of course/institution has not been announced by JAMB. We shall let you know when this happens on

What Is Wrong with the JAMB Change of Course/Institution Process?
Every year, we keep saying this. JAMB, NUC and the Ministry of Education should try to release the cut-off marks for the year before accepting applications for change of courses and change of institutions. This way, candidates would know the scores required by schools before choosing another institution during application.

Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges and other institutions should also endeavour to release their cut-off marks on time. They should release the marks before JAMB change of course/institution form comes out. This will help candidates choose school that can accept their JAMB scores.

What Can You Do?
You can still make an informed decision when it comes to choosing the right institution. If you intend to change your course or institution, you can use the cut-off marks used by institutions for last admission as a guide.

Note that institutions can decide to change their cut-off marks for the next admission.

Every year, after change of courses and application application close and Post-UTME screening starts, there are schools that provide some opportunities. These institutions allow candidates who did not choose them during JAMB registration to come for their screening.
