There are number of reasons why you would or should change your Email address, and knowing why will help identify the best solution to the problem, for this reason, I will list some of the basic reasons why students may want to change their email address in JAMB.

I would recommend you go through these reasons diligently as the solution I would proffer will be based on it.

1. Submitting/Linking The Wrong Email Address To JAMB

This is common among student registering for JAMB the first time, in the process of trying to register for JAMB, you submitted a wrong Email address to JAMB.

Another scenario where you will need to change your email address in JAMB is…

2. Linking A Previously Used Email Address To JAMB

This error is common with students who sat for JAMB before and registered for JAMB again this year. Just so you know, you are not allowed to use the same email address you used for JAMB before to register for this year JAMB, but if you did…

…your JAMB Profile will show the details for the year the email was first linked for JAMB, so if you sat for JAMB in 2022 and register for JAMB again this year 2023, linking the same email you used for 2022 JAMB will cause problem, you will have to create a new email address.

This is another reason you may want to change JAMB email address is…

3. You Lost The Password To The Email Address You Linked To JAMB

To be able to receive email from JAMB, you must log in to your mail box where all the messages sent to that email can be found, but if for some reasons you forget the password to login to your mail box, then you may be tempted to want to change the email you linked to JAMB.

The Solutions to the aforementioned reasons are not the same, but do not worry, I will take each and explain how you can get past them shortly.

Can I change my Email Address and Password In JAMB?

shy to ask questions

NO, currently there is no way to directly change the Email address you linked to your JAMB Profile, unlike changing or correcting your Name, Gender or Date of Birth (DOB) in JAMB, but there are other ways you can use to avert the damage done.

The solution is based on the reason you want to change it, which I have listed earlier, I will identify a possible cause and tell you how you can fix it.

How To Change JAMB Email Address And Password

Like I mentioned earlier in this post, the solution to a wrong email address is a function of what the actual cause is, which could be; Linking The Wrong Email Address To JAMB, Linking a Previously used Email Address to JAMB or You Lost The Password To The Email Address You Linked To JAMB.

Here are the solutions to these three situations…

1. Solution To Linking The Wrong Email Address To JAMB

If the issue with your email was that you linked a wrong/Incorrect Email address to JAMB, that is, instead of linking exa[email protected] you mistakenly sent exe[email protected], the solution to this would be to create an email that has the exact same address as the error you made.

Here is what you should do;

Create Email For Jamb
Create Email For JAMB

For this tutorial, we shall be using Google mail, there are other mail providers hotmail, Yahoo mail e.t.c but Jamb recommends you use Google mail (Gmail).

  • First go to your website and type, or click here directly
  • On the homepage, Click on the “create account” button
  • After which, you will be provided with a form, fill this form with your correct information, but at the username option, enter the new username of the mistake you made, which in this case is “exemple” instead of “example” since you have already made this error.
Create new email to fix Jamb email problems
Create new email to fix JAMB email problems
  • Follow the prompt thereafter and create your Account.

With this, you can now access the wrong email address you linked with your JAMB, problem solved.

The only problem with this method is that, the new email address you created have to be available, else it will not work.

The third scenario is forgetting the Password to your email address

With this, I guess I have been able to cover all possible cases where you will need to change your JAMB email address with the right steps to take, I will now answer some of the frequently asked questions on this topic.

Hey there! I'm Gabriel, a student advocate and the Brain behind this blog, (DrugSavant). Feel free to contact me using any of the Contact options HERE.


  1. You said we can create an account similar to the one that we put while registering for jamb. How then would we get the email contacting the password to the jamb caps?

  2. I created another email with the wrong email and I tried login in with it but it didn’t open?…I tried to login with the password I got that they sent to the number it wrote that the email was invalid

  3. sir pls I have linked my email to jamb and a the email was misspelt but I was able to retrieve my jamb password the cand… own in particular

    But when writing my post utme which email am I to use the misspelt one already linked to my jamb profile or the normal one

    and which password will I be asked for is it the cand….. Or the password to the email

    1. I would advice you create the misspelt email address and use as you proceed with your admission process (that is if you have not already done that)

      What method did you use in getting your profile password?

      Your Cand…. password is only used when you want to login to your JAMB profile.

      1. sir I’ve tried creating an email with the misspelt one but it is already taken

        I got the Cand… password by sending password to 55019 with the number I used in registering

        1. If that is the case, you can use another email address for the rest of your application (post utme registration)

          But when you want to login to your Jamb profile, use the misspelt email address as your username and your generated password (Cand…) as your password.

        2. Am having the same problem since all these days I can’t login to caps and my jamb profile.
          I will do that now to get the password thanks

  4. How will I get to know that jamb has answered my support ticket?? and by the way I have summited tickets about 3 times??☹️
