How To Create Profile For Regularization For DE (Direct Entry)

JAMB logo
I’ve addressed several topics around the JAMB regularisation in the past. I covered: What JAMB regularisation is and how it affects NYSC. Also, why regularization is important to DE applicants and who truly needs it.

If you’ve read that and you’re sure you needed to do JAMB regularisation for your Direct Entry or National Service, the more likely question in your mind now should be how to create a profile for this exercise.

Before guiding you on step by step procedures to create a regularisation profile, let’s commit some important details to heart:

  1. JAMB regularisation is not meant for all DE applicants neither it is for all awaiting corpers. Read the post linked above to be sure if you need it.
  2. Creating a profile for regularisation is not “much” different from creating a profile for JAMB. JAMB candidates use phones to get profile codes to start with. Then, they have to complete profile creation at a CBT centre or JAMB office. Regularising candidates can create their profiles on the JAMB portal without the need to use a CBT centre or JAMB office.
  3. Regularisation can be done at a café or internet service business centre. 
  4. Candidates regularising should know why they need it. There are various options to choose from before proceeding with the registrations. Among the options are:
  • Unregistered Admission (Not yet offered Admission by JAMB)
  • The normalization of Irregular Admission
  • Intra (Change in Course Offered)
  • Inter (Deletion of the Previous Institution)

Now, let’s dive into how to create a regularisation/JAMB profile

Step By Step Procedures To Create Profile For DE Regularization

  1. Visit
  2. Click on “Create an Account”
  3. On the resulting page, fill in the basic details.
  4. NOTE: You are advised to create an account with a valid email address because all vital information will be sent to the email you supplied. I advise you to use Gmail for this purpose.
  5. A confirmation link will be sent to the email provided. Click the link to open the main form. Fill this form with the correct information. This includes the date of birth, local government, etc. 
  6. NOTE: Any details you supplied here will affect the information on your JAMB admission letters and NYSC. Be sure you know what you’re doing here.
  7. Submit the form. 
  8. Now, you have your profile active. You can then log into the account with the email and password chosen.

After Regularisation Profile Creation, What Next?

  1. You can complete the regularisation application by yourself if you know what you’re doing.
  2. You can also use the service of a café or CBT centre if you can’t handle things on your own.
  3. A café or a CBT centre should know what to do at every stage of your application. What is important is to explain why you’re regularising. This will be the option they will select before making the payment and complete your application.
  4. You will print an indemnity form after the application (in colour). Take this to your former school (usually polytechnic or college of education). The school admission officer will sign and stamp a part of it. This will then be forwarded to the JAMB office by the school – not by you!
  5. If the regularisation is well done and the school attends timely, JAMB will send you a message of confirmation (to your email) that your regularisation has been approved. This may take a couple of weeks or a few months.
  6. After this, you can use your given or regularised JAMB registration number for your Direct entry application or any other purpose.
