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

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.

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 2021 Registration ONLY BY THE SAME CANDIDATE.

  • 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 and 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)
  • Candidate can use the command UTMEPIN and DEPIN to retrieve 2021 UTME e-PIN after e-PIN purchase.
  • Candidate 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 Surname, Firstname and Middlename to 55019
  • Candidates will be able to send CORRECT to 55019 in case of error before Registration
  • Candidates will be able to retrieve newly generated Profile Code by using RESEND.
  • Candidates will be able to Purchase e-PIN from any accredited outlet using newly generated Profile code as usual.
  • Candidates will be able to use UTMEPIN and DEPIN after purchase of e-PIN to retrieve lost e-PIN
