Why you see “No Record Found” on NYSC Portal for Senate list

Sometimes, when prospective corps members check their names on the NYSC Senate list, they see a message like “No Record Found” on NYSC portal, but they really don’t understand what it means or why they are seeing it.

If you have been seeing “no record found” on NYSC portal whenever you check your name on the Senate list, you are on the right page. I will show you why you keep seeing it and best way to resolve it.

Before I tell you why you keep seeing ‘no record found’ on the NYSC Senate list portal, take a minute to check your name on the NYSC Senate list once again. If you keep seeing no record found, then continue reading.

Let me first show you how the whole process work.

Pre-mobilization (gathering of the Senate List)

The first stage of the National Youth Service Corps is pre-mobilization of eligible candidates by Corps Producing Institutions (CPIs).

At this stage, Institutions collect the details of their candidates by asking them to fill mobilization form.

Although, there are institutions that automatically enlist their qualified candidates for the National Service without asking them to fill any form. Please, find out if your school require you to fill any NYSC mobilization form.

Pasting of the Senate List:

The second stage is to paste the name of all the mobilized Prospective Corps Members for cross-checking at the Directorate of Students Affairs in your school.

Although, some Corps Producing Institutions usually do not release the list publicly.

But most Institutions paste the list on the notice board at the Directorate of Student Affairs for interested persons to cross check their names before final submission to the NYSC.

Submission/Uploading of the Senate List

The third stage is the submission of the Senate Approve List to the NYSC. Your Institution will upload the soft copy of the senate list, and submit it to the NYSC by uploading it to the NYSC portal.

NYSC will make the list accessible online for Prospective Corps Members to check, after they received the hard copy of the Senate list from the Institutions.

NB: Your Institution is totally responsible for the uploading of Senate List on the NYSC portal. Therefore, complaint of your name not found on the Senate list should be taken to them.

Hard Copy To Abuja

After the pasting of the list and necessary corrections made, the Corps Producing Institutions will take the hard copies of the Senate list to the NYSC Headquarter in Abuja for verification.

If the the ones uploaded online (soft copy) tally with the ones submitted to the NYSC Head Office (hard copy), then the process will continue, but if it does not tally, all names cause the variance would be removed (send to error list).

NYSC, during verification will also check if the names on the list that was submitted to them are in tandem with the JAMB Matriculation list, the name at variance again will be sent to error list.

The idea of all these process is to curb corruption and manipulation in some institutions.

The Corruption

In the past, there was nothing like Senate List, JAMB Matriculation or JAMB Regularization. As at 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012 and so on, there’s nothing like that.

It was in early 2017, that the NYSC management discovered that some Institutions mobilize some people who are not properly graduated to serve in the National Service.

Most of the time they would even remove names of qualified graduates and replace them with the names of those who must have paid to them.

This became so serious, until NYSC issued a warning that any Institution caught in that unethical act will be banned from participating in NYSC scheme.

So, on the attempt to curb the corruption, then the idea of the Senate list going through some rigorous verification processes came into play.

In the early 2018, JAMB noticed that some that schools also mobilize individuals who did not get admission through JAMB.

To stop that, the idea of JAMB Matriculation was introduced.

So, after the numerous cross-checking and necessary measures, the Senate list will then be visible on-line at the NYSC portal for Prospective Corps Members to verify their names.

Even if the senate list is pasted on your Institution’s notice board, you’ll still be getting “No Record Found” if you check the senate list on the NYSC portal until your Institution upload the list on the NYSC portal and submit the hard copy of the list to NYSC.
