If you’re just registering JAMB UTME or DE or regularization for the first time, you need to get your profile/confirmation code for the first time. Hence, you should read this post, “JAMB UTME/DE Form is Out. How to Register Step By Step” or “JAMB UTME/DE: Answers to the Questions Bothering Admission Seekers”.

If you’re here to get your password to the JAMB portal or profile password, use this guide instead.

This post is meant for those who had completed their JAMB registrations but need their profile codes later.

I have received lots of questions – all surrounding how to recover a lost JAMB profile code. This is because CBT centers or JAMB offices are asking for these codes in order to access candidates’ portals to upload their O’level results – especially those who had earlier used awaiting results.

What is certain is that CBT centers may need it before helping you do anything in your JAMB account.

If you had registered for JAMB in recent years and now you need to get your lost profile code back, then continue to read this post to the end.

My blog has got a series of search queries lately thereby leading to giving you three-sure methods to recover your lost code:

  • I forgot my JAMB profile code.
  • How to recover lost JAMB profile code
  • How to retrieve JAMB profile code
  • How to get JAMB profile code
  • JAMB profile confirmation code
  • JAMB profile 2021
  • How to retrieve lost JAMB profile code
  • How to get back the JAMB profile code

In case you don’t know what the profile code is. This is a one-time number that will be sent to you when you begin your UTME/DE registration.

If you’re taking the JAMB UTME or Direct Entry form for the first time, you have to follow the steps below to get your JAMB profile. This profile will be used to obtain or procure your JAMB PIN which will be used to register for you at the CBT center or JAMB office.
To get that, you will send your NIN to 55019/66019, as an SMS in the following format NIN 67895423879. After this, your line will be debited with N50. Then, a message containing the profile code will be sent to you. Use that to buy e-PIN. Take the e-PIN to the nearest CBT center or JAMB office for your registration.

1. Request JAMB Profile Code Again

Starting from the 2022 admission year, candidates who had done UTME/DE in the 2021 admission year, will have to use the same profile code used last year. Why?
Their profile code is already tied to their NIN. And since a person can only have one NIN, which means you can’t change your NIN, you can’t change the profile code too.

Remember when you wanted to buy your JAMB form/PIN, you would send NIN followed by your 11-digit NIN to 55019/66019 as SMS e.g NIN 67895423879. Then a message was delivered to your phone with a set of numbers. The number was a ten-digit code e.g. 49251**931.

That’s your profile code.

Some candidates have lost their phones together with this SMS. Some had mistakenly deleted the code/SMS off their phones.

So how will you solve this problem?
Send a text message, “RESEND” to “55019/66019” on the same line you used to get the message the first time. This will cost N50!
If you’ve lost your SIM/line, you will need to do WELCOME BACK for the SIM.
But if you choose to use another line or a new SIM to get it back. Just send your NIN followed by your 11-digit NIN to 55019/66019. This will cost N50!
Of course, it will send the same lost profile code to you.

2. Locate the JAMB Profile Code in Your Account

This is easier and cost-free. You have to log in to your JAMB profile used last year. To do that, you must first link your email to the JAMB profile if you have not done that already.

See the profile code at the top of your JAMB profile dashboard
See the profile code at the top of your JAMB profile dashboard
After that, log in to your JAMB portal following the steps below.
  1. Visit the JAMB e-facility portal
  2. Log in to your candidate’s profile with your JAMB profile email (linked) and its password (the one JAMB sent to your linked email if you’ve not changed it)
  3. This will take you to your Dashboard. Here you will see at the top “Hello! Welcome Back, Joel Joe Joe… Registration Profile Code: 49251**931

That’s it.

3. Check for the JAMB Profile Code in Your Email Inbox/Spam

Just recently, JAMB has made it possible for you to get your profile code sent to your email while you’re creating your profile. This should be among the information that the board will send to you immediately after linking the email with the JAMB board. This is clear to you if you processed admission last year and you linked the email.

See the profile code within an email message
In order to check for your profile code in the email:
  1. Log in to your email you used while creating the profile or used for your JAMB registration
  2. Locate the message sent to you that very day.
  3. If you’ve already got a lot of messages that, it becomes difficult for you to see the JAMB’s ones, use the search box inside your email dashboard. Type in “JAMB” and hit the enter key (search). This will return only a few messages you got from JAMB or that have to do with JAMB. Then, check for the right one.
  4. The message that contains the profile code will look like the one above.

4. Check Your Remita Receipt, Interswitch Print or Paper Form Used Last Year

If you buy your JAMB form through Remita, or the JAMB portal, last year, you should have a printout to that effect.

Remita’s receipt contains the profile code used to buy the PIN. So also are the printouts buy other similar vendors. Pick that paper, if you can still see it, and check for your profile code.
Similarly, some CBT centers would give candidates paper forms called templates when they arrive at the center for their registrations. There was a space for the profile code in the one given to you. You filled the profile code there last year. The paper was given back to you after they filled out your form online.
You can check that paper if you still have it and see the profile code you submitted back then
