How to Change Institution in Jamb: The Most Effective Way to Do It By Yourself

This article will walk you through the steps necessary to alter the school that you originally chose in JAMB as either your first or second option in order to enrol in a different program. The reasons for wishing to make this change are up to you.

JAMB 2024/2025 students will only be able to apply for a Change of Institution in JAMB immediately after the release of the results (see when JAMB results will be released for 2024/2025 here). This is due to the fact that the JAMB exam is scheduled to begin on the 6th of May, and the exam spans an entire week. It is recommended that the portal for changing institutions for the 2024/2025 school year be launched on May 14, 2024.

This indicates that beginning on May 14th, you will have the ability to use the JAMB Portal to switch from your previous institution to a new one.

Things to Keep in Mind While Paying to Change Institution in Jamb

While working on how to repair the errors you made on the JAMB, there are a few things you really must keep in mind. These factors include…

You are needed to pay using the JAMB account that you established on this platform in order to make a payment. As paying using another account would result in the necessary service being attached to the payment account, it follows that you cannot pay using the JAMB profile account of another individual.

Before moving forward with the payment, please check and double check all of your information.

Be careful to jot down your transaction ID so you can access it easily in the future. You never know when you may need it.

The application deadline for JAMB to change institutions has passed. The last day to submit an application for JAMB Change of Institution for the 2022/2023 JAMBite exam is February 17th.

Students who registered for JAMB this year have until February 17 to complete their applications.
