In case you 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 registration.

Remember when you wanted to buy your JAMB form, you would send your full name to 55019 as SMS. Then a message was delivered to your phone with set of number. 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?

#1: Request Again for your Code.

Send a text message, "RESEND" to "55019" on the same line you used to get the message the first time.

If you'd lost your SIM/line, you will need to do WELCOME BACK for the SIM. This is the only way out. Then, send the SMS after your line is ready.

Note that, this will deduct #50 service charge on your line before you can get the code back. In other words, ensure you have at least #50 on your account before sending the SMS.

#3: Copy it Out of your JAMB Profile Account

Just recently, JAMB has made it possible for you to get your profile code sent to your email while you're creating your profile.

See where the code is on your JAMB account

In order to check for your profile code in the email:
  1. Log in to your email you used while creating JAMB profile
  2. Locate the message sent to you that very day.
  3. If you'd already got 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 search. This will return only a few messages you got from JAMB or that has to do with JAMB. Then, check for the right one. 
  4. The message that contains the profile code will look like the one below.

Do you know some candidates are in real trouble for not remembering or losing his or her code. Kindly share with others on Facebook, Whatsapp and Twitter to help them. Use the share icons below this post for your convenience.
