How long does it take for change of course and institution to reflect?
Generally, JAMB change of institutions should reflect on the body’s portal immediately. But if your question is directed to when it will reflect on the school portal or similar situations, you must read to the end of this post.
The Joint Admission and Matriculation board Head of Public Relations, in the person of (PRO) Fabian Benjamin. Said that candidates are only allowed to change course and institution just two times, why the second time is even allowed is to make sure you correct any mistake you find after you must have completed the first change of course process.
Please before proceeding with the change of course and change of institution procedure please ensure to check out for the underlisted Guidelines:
- Candidates must be sure of the Course/Institution you finally want to settle for, Then Verify if the course is available in the school using the JAMB Brochure.
- Candidates must ensure that the school they are changing to does not have a cut off mark which is higher than the candidates score.
- All candidates must ensure they select a Course/Institution that correlate with their various subject combination to avoid being screened out when institution is carrying out their screening exercise.
How much is the change of institution?
The question “How much is change of institution/change of course is usually placed at N2,500. Using the one-time payment of N2,500 to change your institution, course, name, and date of birth, state, and L.G.A. and if you make any mistake in the first correction, you will have to pay the same amount over again.
How long will it take the Changes to Reflect on the School’s Portal?
It can take as long as 24 hours or a couple of days. Going by the explanation above, you should be rest assured that sooner or later your information will definitely reflect.
A school that will not allow change of institution again will definitely inform you while on the JAMB portal for the change of institution. You would get a prompt like this “This institution is no longer accepting new candidates”. As a result, you won’t be able to effect the change to the school.
Hence, if you’re able to do the change of institution or course on the JAMB portal, it means the schools concerned have agreed to accept the changes in the first place, and will definitely update her database for that new changes.
And to answer your question, it usually takes a few days, weeks, or months depending on how much time the school has to end her registration.
