JAMB Profile Code Generation & Purchase of e-Pin for New & Previously Used Numbers

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released the step-by-step guide for UTME and Direct Entry candidates to generate profile code and how they can purchase e-Pin for new and previously used phone number.

JAMB Profile Code Generation & Purchase of e-Pin



ALERT! Previously Used Numbers for JAMB Registrations can only be re-used by the same Candidate (Not another candidate)

A Previously Used Number is a GSM Telephone Number (SIM) used for Profile Code Creation, e-PIN Vending and Registration in Previous Registration Exercises. This can be used for the 2022 Registration ONLY BY THE SAME CANDIDATE.

SEE ALSO:

The Candidate who is using his/her previous number for the second or third time will use the same profile code to purchase the new e-PIN.

If the Profile Code has been forgotten, the candidate can send RESEND to 55019 or 66019and he/she would recover the Old Profile Code.

In other words, the Old Profile Code can be used by the same candidate to procure the new e-PIN. No new profile code is required.

However, the Candidate cannot change names by using CORRECT on this existing number as this Profile is already tied to the existing number (typically done before Registration)

Candidates can register at any JAMB CBT Center with an existing Profile (e-Mail, Telephone Number, Profile code) which cannot be changed.

Existing Profile or already used number cannot be transferred to another candidate.

NEW NUMBERS

New Numbers will follow the normal pattern of Registration as prescribed and advertised.

Candidates will be able to register as normal by sending their National Identification Number (NIN) by text (SMS) to 55019 or 66019 from their personal GSM numbers, e.g. write the word “NIN” then space and add your 11 digit NIN Number and send to 55019 or 66019 in this format (NIN 00123456789). There should be a space between the word “NIN” and your 11 digit NIN (Note that another person must not have used the number to register for UTME/DE in the past). Do not use postpaid or special bundle SIM cards, They don’t work unless specially loaded with credit.

To retrieve a lost Profile Code, send [RESEND] to 55019 or 66019 as a text message from the same mobile number

Candidates can reset lost or forgotten Profile Password on their registered cell phone by sending [password] space [email address] to 55019 or 66019 as a text message from the same mobile number

HOW TO RECOVER LOST ePIN AFTER PAYMENT:

  1. If ePIN is not Received or Lost, send [UTMEPIN] or [DEPIN] to 55019 or 66019 for UTME or DE, respectively, from the unique number
  2. The ePIN would then be retrieved and delivered on the candidate’s unique number

AFTER SUCCESSFUL PAYMENT AND OBTAINING ePIN, CANDIDATE SHOULD PROCEED TO ANY OF THE JAMB ACCREDITED CBT CENTRES TO COMPLETE HIS/HER REGISTRATION.

    • Yes you can, you don't need a new profile code, just send resend and you'll be able to retrieve you last profile code. As long as it's the same candidate.
