    • Hi,
      Please you will need to purchase a change of course form. Kindly visit the university for further advise.

    • Change of course is possible in the institution. However you need to consult the school authority for questions around change of institution.

  2. I have written the post utme and scored 27/40 and my aggregate score is 54,while the cut off mark for zoology this year 2019 as told to me by a zoologist himself studying in Oau is 50 ie. on merit. Now my question lies here ;I had to change my course from med. to zout since 2 months ago ;Is there a special list for COC students bcos I have being checking my caps and it still shows me”sorry,no admission given yet”.Pls I need a reply fast ,thanks for reading.

  3. I had to change my course from med. to zoology and the result had been out since 2 months ago.

  4. Please when you meant that students won’t be allowed to transfer to a course in which their initial qualification isn’t up to. What I am about to ask is that does the initial qualifications include our post utme. Because I would like to switch 200level and my post utme cutoff is 55% I was given zoology instead of medicine and I would like to switch later even if it’s not medicine, at least to a medical line course

  5. pls is the change of course form for this session 2019/2020 out….. to 200 level, that is.

  6. Can I change from chemistry education to chemical engineering, my aggregate is 66.75 and my post utme is 26/40
