JAMB Change of Course, Institution & Data Correction 2019 Begins

Joint Admission and Matriculation Board Change of course and institution and correction of data portal for 2019 UTME candidates has commenced. Candidates can be able to change their courses and institution as well as data correction.

  • You can change all the courses and institutions at the same time if you want.
  • Once you make your changes and submit. You can not change again. So go through your selections and ensure it is what you want before submitting
  •  Ensure that the course you are changing to is in line with your UTME subject combination. If you select a course that is not in line with your subject combination, you will be disqualified from admission. Please use the Online JAMB Brochure to verify.
  • Also ensure you the course you are changing to is available in your institution of choice. You can equally use the JAMB Brochure to verify that.
  • There may be a limited number of schools or courses you can change to, so be sure to have 3 or 4 options, just in case the one you want to change to is not available.
  • The change of course and institution will attract a fee of 2,500. (the accredited centre that will help you with the changes will likely charge an extra fee.)
  • Only Approved JAMB CBT Centres are allowed to make these changes.
