JAMB Change of Institution 

We are pleased to inform the general public especially candidates who participated in the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) that the school management has opened the portal for change of course, institution, and correction of data. 

How much is JAMB change of institution? 

The price for is N2,500 (Two thousand five hundred naira). According to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), this money should be paid directly to any official directed to collect such in JAMB office.  

I personally recommend students to do their JAMB change of institution in any recognized JAMB office around them. Because it is the only place where one can be rest assured that the job will be done correctly.  If you are going to a cybercafé to change your institution, note that the price might be slightly higher than the one above. Thus, it is advisable to go with an additional N1,000 with you.
