Jamb Change of course as the name implies, is a service offered by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to students who have interest in changing the Courses they chose as either first or second choice in Jamb after registration.

Students apply for Jamb change of course either because, they no longer have interest in studying what they first applied in Jamb, or made a mistake in their Jamb Subject combination with the hope of changing the course to remedy the situation.

Whatever your reasons may be, the process for Jamb change of course is all the same.
