The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) profile code is a crucial element for any aspiring student pursuing higher education in Nigeria.

This 10-digit code serves as your unique identifier throughout the JAMB registration process, from creating your profile to purchasing an e-PIN and ultimately sitting for the exam. But acquiring this code can sometimes be shrouded in confusion.

Worry not! This comprehensive guide will walk you through the process of obtaining your JAMB profile code in a clear and concise manner.

How to Get JAMB Profile Code Using USSD

To generate your JAMB profile code, you’ll require an unused SIM card. It’s preferable to use a SIM card registered under your name and linked to your NIN (National Identification Number). In case you don’t have a personal Sim, you can use your parent’s phone number or any of your relatives.


From your mobile phone, go to text message and compose a message in the format “NIN [Your NIN Number]” and send it to 55019 or 66019. For example, “NIN 1234567890”. Ensure your SIM card has at least ₦50 airtime balance to send this message successfully.

Upon successful transmission, your JAMB profile code will be delivered to your phone via SMS.

It’s important to store your profile code safely. This code will come in handy not just during the UTME registration but also when uploading your O’Level results to JAMB CAPS. Consider using Google Keep, available on Android and iOS, to store and safeguard your profile code.
