  • A purchased JAMB ePIN

I will work you through the registration process and procedure below.

JAMB registration process

  • Firstly, you will have to have to create a profile code to get started with the registration process.
  • To create the profile code, use a unique phone number to send your NIN via text message (SMS). Here is an example: send NIN space 11-digit NIN number to 55019. (NIN 12345678910)
  • After sending the message, a profile code will be sent to your phone number. The profile code contains 10 characters.
  • The candidate will then go to an ePin center (This might be in the Banks, POS, and MFB’s e.t.c). Provide your profile code to the ePin center and pay the required amount. The ePin will then be sent the phone number you used to create the profile code.
  • Take the ePin to any accredited JAMB CBT center to continue the registration process

Note: The phone number (SIM) that you used to get the profile code should be consistent throughout the registration process. You cannot use one phone number to create a profile code and a different one for the rest of the registration process.
