Before you start thinking about change of course, I will like to tell you few things you should know about it.

Tips About OAU Change Of Course Form 2020/2021

  1. Application for change of course in OAU is attended to on a first-come-first-served basis.
  2. You need to meet the minimum of 50/100 aggregate score before you can apply for the Post UTME exercise
  3. Competitive courses like Medicine, Pharmacy, Law e.t.c may not be made available as the space for these departments will be filled up already.
  4. If you apply for Medicine initially and change to Chemistry, it is  not a guarantee of being given Chemistry. However, your chances of gaining admission increases with how fast you apply and how high you aggregate score is.
  5. You may be given another course without applying for change of course. However, this is not always so.


Be informed that the exercise is totally free, you don’t need to pay any amount to change course you are aspiring for in OAU.

You will be able to change your department/faculty on your dashboard as soon as the portal is open.

If you did not meet the department cut off mark for the initial course you chose and you have not been given admission, then you may want to apply for change of course.

  1. Good day. Your efforts to help and assist others are encouraging but not conclusively done in this article concerning OAU change of course form. The courses available for consideration are not included in the article which renders it inclusive and disheartening. Kindly ensure that in your future posts you cover grounds that would make your article solution to concerned minds. Thanks.

  2. Pls I scored 55.1 as my aggregate score and I want to study accounting, but now I want to change my course because d mark is too low for accounting, which course can I change to that will match d same subject combination for accounting

      • It depends on the quota that is available for admission and the normal of people that have met the requirements already. If there is no quota available, the form might not be released publicly. However, that doesn’t mean you can ‘t find ways around getting a less competitive course if you know your way.

  3. Can I change from microbiology to computer science through the change of course form even if I’ve already been given admission for microbiology?

  4. I’m applying for agric economics in oau I wrote the post utme and I had 62 has the aggregate..but In my jamb registration I chose economics instead of chemistry..any hope??

  5. I got 53.27 as aggregate in my post utme
    But I didn’t reach the departmental cut off mark for accounting
    Can I change to business administration
    Or there’s no hope

    • First, the departmental cut off marks for 2020/2021 admission exercise has not been released yet. What you saw must have been the previous cut off mark.

      However, if your aggregate score is FAR less than the last cut off mark, you might start thinking (not looking for) of alternatives since there’s a chance that the cut off mark this will be close to the cut off mark last year.

      But, if the general performance among Accounting aspirants this year is lower than last year’s, then the cut off mark will be lower and vice versa.

      The point is, don’t rule out yourself until the OFFICIAL departmental cut off marks are released. If after that, you do not meet merit/catchment, you can now start looking for alternatives.

      In the mean time, if you think your aggregate is low, starting thinking of alternatives.

      To answer your question, yes you can change (though not usually on the school portal) and there’s hope for your course or another course depending on many factors.

  6. I got 57.6 but the cutoff mark for international relations is 59 can I still be given admission or should I change my course to local govt studies??
