After graduation from the University/Polytechnic, one thing that could stop you from going for NYSC is JAMB. In this post, I will show you how to check your name on JAMB matriculation list for NYSC mobilization.
This post will take you through the step by step procedures to verify your name on the JAMB list for NYSC mobilization.
Also, you’ll learn how to add your name to the matriculation list if your name is not there
But before I show you how to check your name on the Matriculation, let’s look at what it means.
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 genuinely admitted into tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
According to the Nigerian constitution, the only way to be genuinely admitted into tertiary institution in Nigeria is through JAMB.
So, if your name is not on the JAMB list; it implies that JAMB does not recognize your admission. In other words, your admission is not valid, and you will not go for NYSC.
To make checking of names on matriculation list easier, JAMB launched an online portal where graduates and undergraduates of various Institutions in Nigeria can check or verify their names.
Why it’s necessary for your name to be on the list?
JAMB will never recognize your admission unless your name is on their matriculation list.
And only candidates whose names appear on the JAMB matriculation list are recognized as bonafide Nigerian students/graduates.
The implication if your name is not found on the Matriculation list:
Since JAMB corroborate with NYSC to fight fake graduates. Your application to NYSC will be declined, and your name will fall into an error list.
In other words, you’ll not be able to go for NYSC, and you’ll not get exemption or exclusion letter either, because JAMB does not recognize you as a graduate.
Note: Foreign trained graduates are not affected. They can check registration requirements for foreign trained graduates.
How to check your name on JAMB matriculation list
Below is how to check/verify your name on the JAMB list;
- Go to JAMB portal at https://jamb.org.ng/efacility_//CheckMatriculationList
- Select your examination year
- Enter your JAMB Registration number where it is required
- Click on “Fetch My Details”.
Once click on “Fetch My Details” button, your name will show up on the portal with your status.
But if your name is not on the JAMB list, do not panic! There is a way to add it.
How to add your name to JAMB matriculation list
If your name is not on the matriculation list after checking using the procedures given above, then follow the procedures below to sort it out;
- Go to JAMB website (e-facility platform),
- Print your JAMB result slip,
- Submit copy of the result slip to your Institution’s Admission Officer.
Note: If you did not get admission directly from JAMB, that means printing your JAMB result slip cannot help you; if at all you write JAMB exam. But don’t worry, even if you don’t write JAMB there’s still a way out.
So, if you don’t have JAMB result or if your admission is not direct from JAMB, what you should do is called, JAMB Regularization. JAMB Regularization will sort it out.
