I have received a lot of questions concerning JAMB Change of Course and Institutions such as:

  • When am I going to do a Change of Course or Institution, is it after JAMB Registration or During the Registration?
  • Can I be able to correct any mistake I made concerning my Course of Study and the Institution of Choice?

Now let’s answer some of the questions provided concerning JAMB 2017 change of course and Institution.


Yes. If you made any mistake concerning the Course you want to study or the University or Institution that you want to study in, You can be able to change or correct it to your desired course or University.


Knowing that JAMB Change of Course and or Institution is possible if one made a mistake while choosing Course or University, The Next Question is: Is is after JAMB Registration or Before JAMB Registration Deadline that I can do a change of Institution?

The answer is No. Jamb change of course or institution is done after the release of JAMB Result when all JAMB Examination has taken place.


Have you done a Change of institution but it has not yet appeared or reflected in your Profile? How long does it take for it to appear?
To answer the question, As at Last Year Downward; JAMB Change of Course and Institution reflects or appears immediately it is done.

I have heard a lot of people complaining that they have done the change of institution or course for almost some time now but they have not seen the changes or it has not reflected on the new school they applied to. To make sure it is done correctly and to be on the safer side, please Visit An Accredited Center and Do your Change if need be.

If the changes have not reflected, go back to the centre you did the change and complain to them or you can go to the nearest JAMB Office and Complain to them.

Note: There is no time to waste as most schools have started selling their Post-UTME Form and if you don’t do it fast, you may end up missing the Screening or not applying at all.

Candidates who wish to do a change of Course or Institution are to visit the nearest Accredited JAMB Registration Center or visit the centre where they did their JAMB Registration and do the Change of Course or Institution.
