For every Nigerian graduate preparing to embark on the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) journey, ensuring eligibility is a crucial step. The JAMB Matriculation List is a fundamental aspect of this process, and in this comprehensive guide, we will walk you through its significance, why it matters, and how to verify your name on the list.
Why does it matter? The JAMB Matriculation List compiles the names of students who gained admission to tertiary institutions in Nigeria through JAMB, the only recognized method for securing admission. If your name is absent from this list, your admission is deemed illegal, and NYSC will not accept your application. To combat the menace of counterfeit graduates, JAMB collaborates with NYSC. This prerequisite is vital for local graduates, although foreign-trained graduates are exempt from it.
How to Verify Your Name on the JAMB Matriculation List: To confirm your status on the JAMB Matriculation List, follow these steps:
- Visit the JAMB portal at https://portal.jamb.gov.ng/efacility/.
- Select your examination year.
- Input your JAMB Registration number.
- Click “Fetch My Details.”
If your name appears on the JAMB Matriculation List, your status will be displayed as “Congratulations, you are on the Matriculation List.” However, if your name is missing, we have a solution.
Keep in mind that the JAMB matriculation list is different from the NYSC Senate list. Therefore, verification on the JAMB portal is essential for NYSC mobilization.
How to Add Your Name to JAMB Matriculation List: If your name is not on the matriculation list, follow these steps to resolve the issue:
- Visit the JAMB website (e-facility platform).
- Print your JAMB result slip and JAMB admission letter.
- After printing these documents, allow some time for your name to be automatically added to the JAMB Matriculation List.
- Submit a copy of your JAMB admission letter to your institution if you haven’t done so.
Alternative Solution for Admission Not Directly Through JAMB: If you did not gain admission directly through JAMB and do not possess a JAMB result, an alternative solution is available: JAMB Regularization. This process addresses your situation. For more details, please refer to our dedicated guide on JAMB Regularization. We encourage you to ask questions or share your success stories in the comments section.
Conclusion: The JAMB Matriculation List serves a critical role in ensuring a smooth NYSC mobilization process. By verifying their names on this list, prospective corps members can establish their eligibility for participation in the National Youth Service Corps program.
This verification step safeguards against impersonation, fraud, or improper enrollment, guaranteeing that only qualified individuals are mobilized for national service.
It is essential for students to proactively check their names on the JAMB Matriculation List well ahead of the NYSC mobilization exercise. By adhering to this crucial requirement, aspiring corps members can secure their chances of participating in the NYSC program, embarking on a meaningful journey of personal and national development.
