Universities Accepting Change of Courses/Institutions and Those Who Are Not- Change of course/institution is ongoing; this update is to answer questions of every intending candidate who bothered with these question; which schools accept change of courses? How many universities accept change of course? Universities/Institutions that are not accepting change of Institutions/Courses?
While trying to change to a few universities, polytechnics and colleges of education (most especially the federal Institutions), JAMB portal complained: “This institution is not accepting Changing of the institution”. Is your intending school affected?
Warning for 2024/2025 applicants: JAMB has pegged the change of institutions/courses to one time, unlike before when you can change twice or more. Hence, these updates supersede any relevant information on this page. I will be sure to update if this information changes any time sooner.
Well, if you check back by now the issue has been resolved. In other words, those schools reported not accepting the changes are now doing that.
I’d concluded it could be system error form JAMB or the body just changed her mind on this new development.
Aside from this issue, some candidates have called me to know if all schools are accepting changes or some are not accepting new students.
This post will open your mind to how things will work. You will see why, how and when some schools may not accept changes.

Schools That Stop Changes Days Before the Sales of Post UTME Form.
Yes, some schools will not accept changes a few days to the sales of their post UTME or screening forms. This set of institutions usually uploads their prospective aspirants’ details to the registration portal before the online application starts. So, once they receive this list form JAMB, they may not accept more lists.
Then, they will instruct JAMB to stop candidates from changing to them. Hence, if you choose the school during the change, it will complain “this institution doesn’t accept changes any longer” For examples, Ahmadu Bello University, University of Benin, University of Lagos, University of Maiduguri, Lagos State University etc.
Schools That Stop Changes After Post UTME Exercise 2024
Some schools continually accept changes but stop after the post UTME or screening registration. In other words, these schools will still accept changes even when their post UTME form is already on sales and registration ongoing. But they will stop accepting changes a few days to the final day or immediately their final day is due.
They usually update their databases as soon as JAMB keeps sending the new list to them. For examples, University of Ibadan, Obafemi Awolowo University, Federal Polytechnic Ede, University of Ilorin, Kwara State University, Osun State University, Federal University of Agriculture Abeokuta etc
Schools That Accept Changes Till the End of Admission Year 2024
Interestingly, some universities, polytechnics and colleges of education remain open to changes until admission year-end.

For example, Ekiti State University, Kwara State University, Adeyemi University/College of Education, The Polytechnic Ibadan, Oke Ogun Polytechnic, Ibarapa Polytechnic Eruwa, Tai Solarin University of Education, Osun State Polytechnic Iree, Osun State College of Technology, Esa Oke etc
