Can a Part-Time Student Switch to Full-Time

To gain admission to a full-time programme, we all know you need UTME. But with a few attempts and no success in the JAMB exams, you may consider the alternatives to gaining admissions, among which is the part-time programme.


If you take the latter, you may want to know if your school will allow you to switch back to the full-time programme.


In other words, as a part-time student or if offered part-time admission, can you later cross to full-time, on school permission, so you can graduate as a full-time student. Or is there any law or arrangement to allow a part-time student to cross/switch to full-time within the same school?


You may need to ask these questions if you're worried about serving at NYSC in the end. Of course, only graduates on a full-time basis, except in a few cases, will be allowed to serve.


You may also be asking if you're just curious to know if it's possible for a school to let its part-time students cross to full-time later - maybe at 200, 300, or 400 level.


This post will answer your question and set your mind at peace after knowing what is possible and what is not.

Universities and Colleges of Education Won't Allow Part-Time Students to Cross to Full-time

If you're admitted on a part-time basis by a university or college of education, you must be ready to complete your studies and graduate as a part-time student as both don't offer such opportunities.


Let's say you enter into a university such as FUOYE through its daily part-time or regular part-time course, the university will, till the end of your studies, retain you as a part-time student unless you decide to move completely from the part-time and obtain another UTME to cross to the full-time programme. The same is applicable to being admitted by a college such as Adeyemi College of Education but wanting to cross to its full-time.


If you consider that, you may decide to move or retain the part-time and still run the full-time especially if the courses are different.


In summary,, it's not just possible, as an internal arrangement, for a student to move from a part-time programme to full-time. The two options you're left with are either to complete the part-time programme or just abandon it, obtain another JAMB UTME and process a full-time admission.

Polytechnics Allow Part-Time Students to Cross to Full Time

Especially if you'd entered a polytechnic for a National Diploma (ND) course on a part-time basis (particularly the daily part-time), the polytechnics will allow you to cross to a full-time course but not until you're seeking admission for the Higher National Diploma (HND).


Let me explain.


It's possible to run your ND course on a part-time basis (be it regular or daily part-time), then, while seeking HND admission, you consider the full-time option instead.


This approach has been well established to allow candidates to eventually go for NYSC. This and related conditions had been covered in my post, "Can I Serve (NYSC) with ND Part-Time Plus HND Full-Time?". Take a moment to check.


On this note, your polytechnic or any other polytechnic considering you for the HND admission will admit you for a full-time course even though your ND is on a part-time basis.
