What to Do If Change of Institution Doesn't Reflect? See Answer

If your change of institution or course through JAMB does not reflect in time for the post-UTME registration, here are the steps to take: First, determine if your new school requires JAMB to update your details before registration; if not, proceed with registration. If waiting is necessary, wait until close to the post-UTME deadline as some schools update last-minute. Ensure you meet the school's cut-off marks and correctly select it as your first choice; verify if the post-UTME registration is still open, and refresh your choices on JAMB CAPS if your old institution still appears there, resolving most issues within two working days.

I keep getting new questions surrounding the change of institutions and courses. Some candidates had issues with the reflection of their courses, some, institutions, and so on. As a result, there is a need to post fresh content to answer some disturbing questions. Here comes another: What Can I Do If My Change of Institution Doesn't Reflect?

Before I answer this question, some of my previous posts might have covered your concern or they may interest you to solve similar messes.

Take a look at these:

  1. After Changing Institutions, How To Know If It Has Reflected
  2. Change of Course Has Not Reflected, Can I Register Post UTME?
  3. Can I Do Change of Institution and Post UTME The Same Day?

In order not to take you off what you're NOT looking for, post number 1 above can help you to confirm if it has reflected or not. Use that guide if you're still confused about how to check it.

If you're contemplating whether you can still register Post UTME before the change reflects, use guide number 2. Some schools will allow you to register for their post-UTMEs before your changes reflect on their portals.

Guide 3 is the twin sister to the 1 above it. If you're just doing the change of institution today or in a few days and want to register for post-UTME the same day or a few days later, you will find that guide handy.

What To Do If Change of Institutions/Courses Doesn't Reflect

There is a thing to know upfront before my recommendations.

Must your new school collect your registration details from JAMB before you register for its post-UTME?

Some schools wait to collect your details from JAMB before they can allow you to register for their Post UTMEs. For some, no need to wait for JAMB updates before you can register. If you fall to the former, you must wait. If the latter, you can continue with your registration without expecting any reflection on the school portal first. That's what I detailed in Guide 2 above.


My Recommendations If Change of Institutions/Courses Doesn't Reflect On Time

1. Wait Until a Few Days Before The Post UTME Closing Date

Candidates ask this question when they're eager to do their new schools' post-UTMEs but find out it has not been updated on their portals. So, what do you do? You wait. Then, how long? Wait till a day or two before the closing day of your proposed school post-UTME.

Some schools will not update their admission portal database until 24 hours or less before the closing date of their post-UTME registrations. Candidates may be unnecessarily bothered. Yet, you must wait. It will eventually reflect unless the school aims to extend its post-UTME registration deadlines.

2. Check If You Meet the JAMB Cut Off Marks Announced

Some schools have announced 180 and above for their post-UTMEs. Unfortunately, a few students rushed to effect change on the JAMB portal without meeting up with this requirement. They just changed schools, perhaps, with the old knowledge of their previous cut-off marks or something related.

I recently tried registering a candidate for FUTA Post UTME. We waited for days to see what his change of institution would reflect. But nothing until the post-UTME was over. I had blamed the school for the omission before I noticed that the poor guy scored less than the cut-off mark announced by the university.

Meanwhile, the university would only ask JAMB to send details of applicants who met their cut-off marks of 180 and above. Nothing less!

3. Check If You Chose The School Rightly - the First Choice?

Similar to number 2 above, some schools are not accepting 2nd choice candidates. A few students who had the knowledge that the school was used to accepting 2nd choice might just change to them as the second institution not knowing that the policy has been changed to the first choice only. 

Be sure you're not making the same mistake.

If you're choosing a school accepting first-choice candidates only as your own second-choice institution, your JAMB change will not reflect. If that school is in the second position, check the school post-UTME advert to see if they are open to you. If not, that could be the reason why things are not reflecting. 

4. Check If the Post UTME is Not Closed

Sometimes you may be campaigning after the election.

Consider going back to the website page where the school announced the sales of the post-UTME and the closing date for the form. See if the day has not passed. If it has, you shouldn't expect the school to accept any further changes from JAMB.

Similarly, confirm if there is an announcement of the extension of the sales of the form. You may be reassured of further patience if the school extends things.

5. Be Sure You Confirm If The School Shows on JAMB CAPS

Just recently, we have witnessed a series of issues with the JAMB change of institutions/courses. One such is candidates changing and with confirmation slips given to them. But they get to know that the old institutions remain on the CAPS.

Under normal circumstances, once the changes are submitted and the confirmation slip printed, the new change first choice institution should be on your admission status on the JAMB CAPS. However, candidates check their CAPS to find out that the old first-choice institution is still there. I already addressed this in my post, "Urgent Thing To Do If You Changed Institutions/Courses"

To solve this issue, visit your JAMB CAPS, navigate to the "My Choices" section, and see the list of the institutions appearing on that page. If the old choices, before you did the changes, are still there, you'll need to immediately click on the "Refresh" button. That action will reload your new choices.

With that, the school you changed to will also receive your change update. Experience has shown that these issues should be resolved within two working days.

    1. The best is to wait for the course to reflect first before registering. However, if it's a school such as FUOYE. You will also need to change the course on the school portal too paying on the school portal for it.
