How To Change JAMB Email Address And Password

I know that some candidates have issues with the JAMB email and password they generated. It may be that you forgot your password or you linked the wrong email when trying to generate your JAMB login. The good news is that there is still hope to change your email and password.

One thing I want you to understand is that the probability of you changing your JAMB email is 50-50 while retrieving your password is 100%. This is because JAMB provided a means to reset your password while no platform on the portal to change your email. However, there is a way around the JAMB email thing. Also, note that without your email and password, you might not be able to accept or reject JAMB admission on CAPS.


Like I said earlier, linking a wrong email is a problem and it won’t allow you to have access to your JAMB CAPS to know your admission status. So the only way to go about this is to follow the steps below.

  • Check the email address that you link to JAMB after registration
  • Write it down on a piece of paper
  • Go to Gmail.com and click on sign up (provided the wrong email is Gmail). The idea is to create another Gmail account using this wrong email
  • Click on “create New email”
  • Enter the email you wrote on the sheet of paper
  • If the email is still available, congratulations, then you should go ahead to register the email
  • If the email is not available, you can go ahead to send a mail to the address and ask the owner to always help you forward JAMB messages to you. Also, let him know that you used that email during registration, and I hope you get a warm response.


This is very easy to do as JAMB on their portal gives room to change or reset your JAMB password.

  • Visit https://jamb.gov.ng/EfacilityLogin
  • Click on reset password
  • Enter your email address in the space provided
  • Click on Password reset (I hope you have access to your email as JAMB will send an email to you)
  • Go to your email and click on the JAMB message to complete the process.

Changing your email to access your JAMB profile is almost impossible. However, you can access your profile without email or password by going to any accredited JAMB center near you. The CBT centers will only request your registration to be able to access the JAMB portal for you.
