In this post, I will show you step-by-step process on how to check NYSC LGA monthly clearance status at the NYSC portal.
It is no longer news that the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has added a new feature, “LGA Clearance” on its official website. This new feature allows Corps members to check their monthly clearance status.
Corps members do clearance every month and each clearance reflects on their dashboard at NYSC online portal.
This option is available for Corp members who already have a profile with NYSC.
If a corps member miss NYSC clearance, it will be recorded as “Absent” for him or her on the NYSC online portal.
Having one “Absent” will cause you not to receive your monthly allowance, while two or more “Absent” attract extension of your service year without pay. The more “Absent” you have the more severe the punishment will be.
As a corps member, you should always check your clearance status.
If you see ‘Absent’ on your dashboard for a particular month, it means that you did not take part in clearance for that month.
However, in this article, I will give you guidelines on how to check your NYSC monthly clearance status.
Note: A successful clearance for a particular month is “Present”. If no clearance is done in a month, your status is “Absent”.
How to Check NYSC LGA Monthly Clearance Status online
- Go to the NYSC portal at portal.nysc.org
Login to your dashboard using your password and e-mail
Click on “LGA Clearance”.
It would show you the list of months you take part in NYSC monthly clearance and your status, which can either be ‘Present’ or ‘Absent’.
Note: Do not panic if you see ‘Absent’ at the Month you left the NYSC orientation camp. But, if you see ‘Absent’ in any other Month aside the month you left NYSC orientation camp; then you have to raise an alarm.
If you see “Absent”, but you did clearance, the best thing for you to do is to report to your Local Government Inspector (LGI’s) before it is too late.
Corps members should keep an eye on their clearance status. Whoever that will get an extension of service will know and won’t be shocked whatever decision the NYSC management takes.
Monthly clearance is very important for serving corps members as it is a prerequisite to getting an allowance from Federal Government.
If you cleared for a month and find out that your status is showing as “absent”, it is advised to see your Local Government Inspector (LGI) as soon as possible.
Also, your LGA monthly clearance status should reflect on your dashboard as soon as you have done your NYSC biometric clearance. Although, it depend on the network in the area.
