JAMB Change of Course / Institution & Correction of Data 2020 [UPDATED]

The New Portal for JAMB Change of Course, Institution and Data Correction for 2020 has been enabled. See the details below.

Jamb change of course and institution

We are pleased to inform the general public especially candidates who participated in the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) that the school management has opened the portal for change of course, institution and correction of data.

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

Latest Update: Candidates who lost the SIM cards they used during registration can now visit a JAMB Office to apply for the Change of Institution/Course. Read the details HERE.

Take Note of the Following before doing the JAMB Change of Institution/Course.

  1. Be sure of the Course and/or Institution you would like to change. Verify if the course is available in the school using the JAMB Brochure.
    • Note: If you have issues with getting the JAMB brochure, just ask us using the comment box and we will gladly answer you.
  2. Ensure you verify that the school you are changing to does not usually have a cut off mark higher than your score. See the last year cutoff mark for Sate and Federal Universities.
  3. Ensure you select a Course/Institution that is in line with your subject combination to avoid being screened out during your school’s admission screening exercise. See subject combination for all courses HERE. 
  4. You can change one or all your courses/institutions at the same time.
  5. You can use the one time payment of N2,500 to change your institution, course, name, date of birth, State and Local Government of origin.

Things you can correct and how many times you can correct them:

  • Names Correction (Correction can only be done once)
  • Date of Birth Correction (Correction can only be done once)
  • Passport Correction (Correction can only be done once)
  • Gender Correction (Correction can only be done once)
  • State/LGA Correction (Correction can only be done once)
  • Profile Correction (Correction can only be done once)
  • Choice of Institution/Course Correction (Correction can only be done three times)

Please I need help I went to do change of course but they said I have done it 3times that I can’t do it again,and the school I put want to transfer me to another course and I need to do change of course to that new course they want to offer me.please what can i do?

Gregg

Hello, I’m sorry for bothering you. So, I was contacted by the person that want to do the COC for me only for her to contact me that 2020 isn’t on the list only 2019 downward so I logged on jamb portal myself and I found out 2020 isn’t really there. Although on my jamb Caps ever since I’ve accepted the new course given to me it has already reflected on my admission status and choices. Please what could be wrong? Could you explain what this means and what I need to do next. Thanks

Mainlope

Hello! Is the change of course for the just concluded jamb exam activated?

Gregg

Hello, I’m back with another question. So I was offered another course by my first school of choice which I’ve accepted and processing the change of course but I keep getting an email from the school talking about registering for DLC so I want to know if this is part of the whole thing or i should just ignore it
and proceed with the change of course because I don’t want to lose this admission that’s why I’m in a hurry to change to the course given to me. I’ve attached the images, please I need your advice. Thank you
