How to Change Your Jamb Email Address or Password

There are many reasons why you would need to change your JAMB email address. You may have had some mistakes in your profile during registration, you may not be able to access your profile since it indicates “invalid email address”, or the email had been used before.

Carefully read through this post as I guide you over the shoulder on what you need to know, and that which you should do concerning JAMB change of email address, password and phone number.

I would start by outlining the reasons why you may need to edit or change your JAMB email address.

  • Missing out a letter, number or character of your email address. When you try logging in to your profile, it would indicate “invalid email address” or “the email address does not exist.” That is probably because you delivered the wrong details during registration.
  • Making use of a previously used email address. If the email address you submitted had previously been used, you would face issues when trying to regain your JAMB score. Even when trying to log in to your JAMB profile, you may not be granted access to it.



There are many ways to retrieve or change your password on JAMB profile page.

By changing your JAMB email address, you would need a recovery email address. It is advised that you use Gmail as it has a higher response rate when working with JAMB.

  • To do this, you have to visit
  • Input an email address which you would use as a recovery mail.
  • Enter the phone number you used to register for JAMB.
  • From here, you would have to input your full name and correct date if birth.
  • Click on enter. A mail would be sent from JAMB to that email address to confirm the change.
  • Go to that mail and confirm it, then your email would be changed automatically.

Please take note that not all email address can be recovered after they have issues. You would have to visit a JAMB office in your locality, to effect this change.


When changing anything on your profile, mind you that you would be required to pay a specific amount of money to the JAMB officials. This you can do at a bank or you can pay through an agent while sparing some charges.

The usual charge for Data Correction on JAMB profile is Two Thousand Five Hundred Naira Only (2, 500).
