Why is it necessary for me to check if my Institution and Course is accredited?
It is necessary to know and be sure whether your Institution is accredited or not because there is a lot of Institutions out there that are not accredited or that have lost their accreditation.
If your Institution is not accredited or if it has lost its accreditation that means graduates from such Institution are not going to be allowed to participate in the National Youth Service exercise.

What if my Institution is accredited but the course I studied is not accredited, will I still go for NYSC?
No! There are so many accredited Universities and Polytechnic out there but some of the Courses they offer have no accreditation or their accreditation might have been withdrawn from the regulatory bodies.
Sometimes, accreditation will be withdrawn from Institutions that fail to meet the regulatory standard for a particular period of time, but in most cases those Institution would defiantly offer admissions to freshers.
In the year 2011, UNIZIK accreditation to study Medicine & Surgery was withdrawn, that year the Institution did not offer admission to new students into the Medicine department; that same year, UNN accreditation to offer admission into Medicine & Surgery department was limited to only 50 students.
If for instance, UNIZIK had offered admission in 2011 into medicine deployment, those set would not be eligible to serve since the University had no accreditation to offer new admission into Medicine department that year.
