How to Check Your Name on JAMB Matriculation List

This post is about how to check your name on JAMB matriculation list. I will take you through all the necessary required processes to verify your name on the JAMB matriculation list. Also, in this post, you’ll learn how to include your name on the JAMB matriculation list if in case your name is not found there.

But just before I show you how to check your name on the JAMB matriculation list, it’s important to understand what JAMB matriculation list mean and why it’s necessary for your name to be on the list.

What is JAMB matriculation list?

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) list is an online portal that houses the list of all those who got admission through JAMB to study in tertiary Institutions within the country as required by the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

However, if your name is not on the JAMB matriculation list; it implies that JAMB does not recognize your studentship whatever, and therefore your admission will not be considered as valid.

To make online verification of names easy, JAMB launched an online portal where graduation and undergraduates of various Institutions in Nigeria can go and check/verify their names on the JAMB matriculation list.

Why it’s necessary for your name to be on JAMB matriculation list?

Like I said before, JAMB will never recognize your admission unless your name is on their matriculation list. Only candidates whose names appear on the JAMB matriculation list are recognized as bonafide students/graduates from the various accredited Institutions across Nigeria.

The implication if your name is not on the JAMB list

If your name is not found on the JAMB matriculation list that means you are finished, your application to NYSC for the one year compulsory National service will be declined. In other words, you’ll not be able to go for the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC), and you’ll not get exemption or exclusion letter either, because JAMB does not recognize you as graduate. However, there’s a way! Do not panic because I said “you are finished”. There is a way out!

Note: Foreign trained graduates are not affected. They don’t need JAMB matriculation list to prosper. See: registration requirements for foreign trained graduates.
