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

JAMB logo
I’ve addressed several topics around the JAMB regularization in the past. I covered: What JAMB regularization 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 regularization 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 regularization profile, let’s commit some important details to heart:

  1. JAMB regularization 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 regularization is not “much” different from creating a profile for JAMB. Before now, JAMB candidates use phones to get profile codes to start with. Then, they have to complete profile creation at a CBT center or JAMB office. For now, both the JAMB candidates and Regularizing candidates can create their profiles on the JAMB portal without the need to use a CBT center or JAMB office.
  3. Regularization can strictly be done at JAMB offices nationwide
  4. Candidates regularizing 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 regularization/JAMB profile

Step By Step Procedures To Create Profile For DE Regularization

  1. On your mobile phone, text as follows: NIN followed by your NIN and send to 55019.
  2. For example, NIN 56789012345
  3. Now, send it to 55019
  4. Note that the first word I typed was "NIN" followed by space, followed by 11-digit NIN
  5. After sending the message to 55019, your line will be debited at #50
  6. After this, a message will be sent to your phone containing your Profile Code
  7. Now, visit the nearest JAMB office with that code. Here, you will need an email to link your JAMB profile online.
  8. That's all!

After Regularization Profile Creation, What Next?

  1. You can use the service of the JAMB office
  2. A JAMB office center should know what to do at every stage of your application. What is important is to explain why you’re regularizing. This will be the option they will select before making the payment and completing your application.
  3. You will print an indemnity form after the application (in color). 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!
  4. If the regularization is well done and the school attends a timely, JAMB will send you a message of confirmation (to your email) that your regularization has been approved. This may take a couple of weeks or a few months.
  5. After this, you can use your given or regularized JAMB registration number for your Direct entry application or any other purpose.
