How to Link Email Address to JAMB Profile 2024

Dear candidates, your profiles were created during JAMB/DE registration when you sent your NIN to 55019. Using your NIN, JAMB has imported your National ID card information into your JAMB profile. Therefore, the information on your NIN is the same as that on your JAMB profile.

Unlike the previous year’s candidates, you will not be able to log in to that profile because there is a new method to enable you to do that.

The new procedure requires all UTME and DE candidates to link their emails with their JAMB profile first using SMS platforms. If you remember, during your JAMB UTME/DE registration, you were not asked to provide an email for the profile creation. You only used your email to buy a PIN; you didn’t use it to create a profile.

In order to log in to your profile, starting from the 2021/2022 admission year, you must create an email if you do not already own one then link it with your existing JAMB profile. This method will be made simple for you with this post.

How To Link Your Email to the JAMB Profile Using a CBT Centre

Some CBT Centres already linked some candidate’s emails right away, please confirm if yours has been linked. If you check your slips and you see your email address on it, then there is no need for you to link your email address as it has already been linked by the CBT center.

However, if you check your slip and you see your phone number and “none” in the email space, you will need to do the linking. Please follow the simple procedure below.
  1. If you don’t have the phone number used for the JAMB registration again.
  2. If you don’t have a phone to do the SMS or access to an email address.
If the SMS method does not work for you, enlist the services of any accredited CBT center around you. They will manually link your email with your JAMB profile and help access your email to retrieve the password to be sent to you.

Link Your Email With the JAMB Portal Using Change of Institutions/Courses

You can also link your email with the JAMB portal using the change of institutions and courses if you have not linked it already by visiting a CBT center as already said in the section above.
If you have a change of institutions and/or courses after the release of your JAMB result, that means you have automatically linked your email too. In other words, the process of doing the change of institutions at any CBT center required the center to first link your email before they can access your JAMB portal and effect the changes.

How To Access CAPS After Linking Your Email to Your JAMB Profile

As soon as you log in to your CAPS as directed above, you are automatically on your JAMB CAPS.
However, in order to specifically proceed to the JAMB CAPS section inside your profile, follow the guide below.
  1. On your profile dashboard, scroll up to locate “Check Admission Status” and click on that
  2. On the resulting page, choose your year of admission and enter your JAMB registration number (if it’s not already there).
  3. On this page, you can “Access CAPS” (on the left) or “Check Admission Status” (on the right). Since we’re talking of the CAPS checking, for now, click on the former.
  4. On the next page, you will see “Welcome” at the top of the page and other facilities by the left of the page.
N/B: If you are using a phone, make use of google chrome to see other facilities.
