JAMB Change Of Course and Institution Closing date for 2021/2022

Many candidates have been asking about the closing date for the JAMB change of course and institution. At the moment, there is no general official closing date for the 2021 JAMB change of course and institution. JAMB change of course and institution closing date for 2021/2022 admission has not been announced.

According to JAMB, the process will still be on until the end of the admission process due to the following reasons;

  1. There are moments whereby candidates who chose a particular institution will not have the opportunity to be admitted to such institutions and another institution may be in the position to offer such candidates admission. If the process of change of course and institution happens to have closed by then, it means that such candidates will not have the choice to change to the institution(s) that wish to offer them admission.
  2. It will help strengthen JAMB  statistics. So that when JAMB is giving an account of admission of candidates, accurate statistics will be presented and not distorted data like in previous years. If a candidate for instance chooses the University of Lagos and later considers YABATECH, the statistics will reflect the second choice. Instead of the two schools.
  3. It will also avoid the case whereby candidates will have multiple admission.

Candidates are therefore advised not to panic but rather take their time to make the decision of the suitable course and institution to change to that will give them a good chance of securing admission.

However, some schools can instruct JAMB to stop candidates from changing to them. Top schools like UNIBEN, UI, UNILORIN, UNIPORT etc usually stop candidates from changing to them once it is maybe a week to the deadline for Post-UTME registration or once they have concluded the screening exercise.

Once a school decides not to accept more candidates, the school will direct JAMB to remove its name from the list of schools a candidate can change to on the JAMB portal. Once this is done, candidates will no longer be able to change to that school.

So if the school you intend to change to is a competitive one, it is usually advisable that you do the change on time. At least two weeks before the deadline for the Post-UTME screening of that school so that your details can reflect on their postal before the deadline. If not, you may not be able to register for the screening exercise in that school.

Candidates who wished to change their choice of course or institution are therefore advised to think properly, before doing so to avoid irregularities.

The process of change of courses and institutions could be done with the payment of N2, 500 in JAMB Computer Based Tests (CBT) centres and at other approved centres. For full details on how to proceed, check this link: JAMB Change of Course, Institution & Data Correction 2021 Begins
