What’s a JAMB Profile Code?

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

Remember when you wanted to buy your JAMB form/PIN, you would send NIN followed by your 11-digit NIN to 55019 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?

If you’d lost your SIM/line, you will need to do WELCOME BACK for the SIM. This is the only way out if you must get it back using this method. Then, send the SMS after your line is ready.

3. Check for 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.

Check for JAMB Profile code in Your Email Inbox/Spam
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’d 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.
