The truth is, without your JAMB profile code, it is impossible for you to register for JAMB
…Oh yes! your JAMB profile code is that Important, and that is why not receiving or retrieving this code is a major problem.
To relieve you of this burden, I have taken out time to identify some of the major causes of this hiccups, and possible ways you can use to overcome this problem…
Nah you don’t need to thank me, moreover what are friends for? 😊
Enough with the chit chat, let me now show you some of the reasons you may encounter error when requesting for your JAMB profile code, all you need to do is go through this list diligently…
…and Identify which of the possible reasons could be cause of your current situation, Identifying the cause is the first step to resolving this issue.
Why Is JAMB Not Sending My Profile Code?
If you find yourself having troubles receiving your JAMB profile code even after sending your NIN to 55019, then it could be because of the following reasons…
1. Not Having Sufficient Credit On your Sim
A lot of students think that the requesting for your JAMB profile code is free, if you are one of those students sharing this same opinion, then I guess we just discovered the reason why you have been having issues receiving your JAMB Profile Code 2023/2024.
I guess I played a role in this believe you have, probably because I failed to add the extra N50 you will be needing to request for your JAMB profile code when I wrote on the Total expenses for JAMB 2023 Registration.
Now, I make a U-turn, the total money you will need for your JAMB registration is N4750😁, the extra 50 Naira is to request for your JAMB profile code.
Solution To Not Having Sufficient Credit
To resolve this, make sure that before you attempt to send your NIN to 55019 or 66019, you have at least N50 in your SIM balance
If you already have above 50 Naira in your SIM and you still encounter problem receiving your Profile code from JAMB then it is obviously not because you don’t have enough credits…
…check out the other reasons below.
2. Using special Package such as Post-paid, promo bundles e.t.c
Having bonus or other special packages do not replace having enough credit (at least N50) in your SIM card, this was made clear by JAMB on its official JAMB registration guide for 2023
The statement was; Do not use Post paid or special bundle package. They do not work unless specially loaded with credits.
Solution to Using special Package
Forget about your Bonus and special package for now, you can use them for calls later, recharge your line with preferably N100 card and resend your NIN to 55019 or 66019, this should get the Job done (that is of course, If this is the cause)
3. You Activated DND (Do Not Disturb) On Your SIM
You and I both know how annoying these Network services can be, because of these irrelevant messages sent by these Network providers (MTN, GLO, 9mobile, Airtel) we no longer take text messaging serious.
Any new text message we receive, there is a 60% chance that it is pure disturbance from these network providers, to get rid of this, they came up with the “activation of DND” option
By activating DND all these irrelevant messages stops, and you stop receiving any form of messages that is tagged as potential Spam…
…the problem with this is, after activating DND, some legit messages may also be tagged SPAM, therefore making you loose out on important information.
This may be the reason you are yet to receive your JAMB profile code for 2023/2024 Registration
Solution To Activation of DND
If this is the reason for the “Not Receiving JAMB Profile Code” Issue you are facing, then simply contact your Sim Customer care and ask them to deactivate DND for your line temporary, you can also use the short codes below…
How To Deactivate DND for MTN, GLO, AIRTEL and 9mobile
For MTN: Opt Out of DND by texting ALLOW to 2442.
For GLO: Text CANCEL to 2442 on your GLO number that has stopped receiving Bulk SMS
For AIRTEL: Text ALLOW to 2442 on your AIRTEL number that has stopped receiving Bulk SMS.
For 9mobile: Text “HELP” or “STOP” to the short code 2242
4. Using a SIM Already Used By Another Student
If the SIM you use to request for Profile code from JAMB has been used by someone in the Past, other than you, then you will also encounter issues.
It is imperative that the number you use have not been used by a student before, because if it has, It means that number has been associated with that student already,
So any other person aside the first person who used the SIM to request for JAMB Profile code, will not be recognized.
I would recommended you read through my guide on How To Use Same Email, Phone Number & Profile Code Twice In JAMB before continuing with this…
Solution To Using a SIM Already Used By Another Student
The thing is, it is difficult to tell if the SIM you intend to use for your JAMB registration has been used before or not, so I always recommend that, for the sake of your JAMB registration you register a new SIM
Moreover, registering a new SIM is not costly, except you are sure beyond reasonable doubt that one has used that SIM, else just register a new one to avoid stress.
5. Sending The Wrong NIN to 55019
This is one of the most common cause of JAMB failing to send you your Profile code for registration, some students add numbers that is not part of your NIN
You must make sure that the NIN you are sending is exactly the same with what you have on your NIMC registration slip, to avoid this kind of error this is what you must do…
Solution To Sending The Wrong NIN to 55019
Dial *346# on your phone, from the options displayed, select “NIN Retrieval”, by typing in ‘1‘. Your NIN will be shown to you on your screen immediately.
Screenshot this with your phone, and pen down the numbers meticulously, do well to go through this number thoroughly to avoid making the same mistakes you have been making.
Next, Go to your messaging App on your Android or Apple device and click on the create new message, fill the message box with the following information; NIN YOUR NIN to 55019 or 66019
Make sure it looks exactly like what is in the image below…
Go through the information you have inputted repeatedly and click the “Send SMS button”
There should be a space (Just one Space) between the word “NIN” and your 11digits NIN. and make sure you have sufficient credits on the SIM to avoid making the first mistake on this list.
Another possible cause is “Sending the Right NIN to the wrong Number“
6. Sending the Right NIN to the wrong Number
You may be doing the right thing, but in the wrong way, if you send your correct NIN to the wrong short code, you will definitely encounter errors as well
Solution to Sending the Right NIN to the wrong Number
The right short code for requesting for your Profile Code from JAMB is 55019 or 66019, using a code other than these two won’t work.
These six (6) reasons are the most like reason why you are not receiving your JAMB profile code, they are caused by you, the others I will be taking in the frequently asked questions, are not necessarily your fault. STAY TUNED!

Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some common error you may encounter when you request for your JAMB Profile code, and possible solutions…
How To Contact NIMC For Error
If your NIN could not be verified, send a mail containing your NIN and full name to [email protected].
No Record Found On NIN, Contact NIMC
Students will only get this error if their registration with NIMC is recent and as such the system is yet to fully recognize their registration.
That is why I always recommended you do your NIN registration months before JAMB registration begins
So if you get the error “candidates’ information was not found when the system was trying to fetch your details” then all you can do is wait, give it 2 to 3 days then retry
Invalid character Found In The Name Supplied
This error is coming from the details NIMC sent to JAMB, the name sent to JAMB is found to contain invalid characters which is not recognized as Names in JAMB system.
To fix this, wait for a few days and retry, this will give NIMC time to resolve the error.
Date of Birth Invalid
