– How to get NYSC evaluation letter
It’s no longer news that NYSC requires graduates of foreign institutions to upload evaluation letter during online registration.
Foreign graduates whose accreditations of their institutions are in doubt are to get evaluation letter.
Before I show you how to process it, let’s first understand its meaning.
What is NYSC evaluation letter?
It’s a letter that Nigerian foreign graduates need to get from the Federal Ministry of Education.
This letter shows that the institution and course they studied abroad are duly accredited by the Govt of that country.
During NYSC online registration, if you see on your dashboard something like “you have not been evaluated yet“. It means you need to upload evaluation letter.
The NYSC management has made evaluation compulsory for foreign graduates. Although, it’s mainly for those who studied in African countries.
Why the NYSC letter of evaluation?
In Nigeria, there are some tertiary institutions that are banned from taking part in NYSC.
It’s because they are not accredited by National University Commission (NUC) or other regulatory agency.
That’s the same way some institutions operate illegally outside Nigeria. So, the NYSC management wants to fish out graduates from those fake foreign institutions.
Also, NYSC check accreditation of course or programme. This is because there are also some institutions that are not allowed to offer a particular course or programme.
However, the National University Commission (NUC) has cautioned Nigerians from studying in Ghana, Niger, Togo, Benin Republic, and so on. Maybe it’s because most of the institutions in those countries do not have accreditation.
During evaluation processes, the ministry of education will check the accreditation status of your institution.
So, make sure your institution is accredited before applying for NYSC. Where in doubt it’s your responsibility to visit the federal ministry of education for confirmation.
When you get the NYSC evaluation letter, scan and upload it on your NYSC dashboard. It takes one to two weeks or even a month to reflect.
