Method 2: How To Obtain your JAMB Profile Code Using SMS

  • To generate your Profile code using this method, send your NIN number to 55019 via SMS with the phone number you intend to use to register on the JAMB Portal. For instance, Assuming your NIN number is 12345678912, you will send NIN 12345678912 to 55019.

Consider the following information when generating your 2022 JAMB Profile 10 digit code:

  • Do not send an SMS to 55019 from a phone number that has already been used to create a profile or to complete any JAMB registration previously.
  • If you have used your phone number to register on the portal before maybe in the previous year, you will need a new phone number to start a new registration.
  • Use a single phone number through the process of generating the Profile code and registration.
  • Verify that the NIN number you are sending to 55019 is yours. 
  • Make sure you have at least a balance of ₦50 airtime on the number you’ll be sending the SMS from because any SMS you send to 55019 will attract a charge of ₦50.
