The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) requires that Nigerians who studied in foreign Institutions, whose accreditations are in doubt to upload evaluation letter on their dashboards. In this article, I’ll show you how to process NYSC evaluation letter and other things you need to know about evaluation of foreign trained graduates.
If you are seeing a notification on your NYSC which read as “you have not been evaluated yet “, then you will definitely find this post useful.
The NYSC management have made evaluation compulsory for foreign trained prospective corps members, especially those who studied in African countries whose accreditation are in doubt.
Below are African countries where evaluation is most wanted; Ghana, Niger,Togo, Benin Republic, and other many more.
Why evaluation letter?
In Nigeria, there are some Institutions their graduates are not allowed to participate in NYSC because they are not accredited by the National University Commission (NUC) or other regulatory bodies. Also, there is a lot of Institutions in foreign countries which operate without being accredited by relevant authorities. NYSC management wants to filter graduates of those Institutions so that they won’t be allowed to participate in National service. That is why they required evaluation letter from some Institutions outside the shores of Nigeria.
If somebody has represented your Institution and course of study, it is likely that you are not going to be asked to upload evaluation letter when it is your turn. For example; Is John studied economics in the university of Ghana, and served in 2017. If Jennifer studied economics in the same university as John, and want to serve in 2019. She is likely not going to be asked to evaluate. But if she studied different course, she would be asked to evaluate because NYSC is not sure whether the university of Ghana is accredited to offer that particular course. This is because many Institutions offer courses they are not accredited to offer.
However, the National University Commission (NUC) has cautioned Nigerians from studying in Ghana, Niger, Togo, Benin Republic, and so on due to the uncertainty of the accreditation of undergraduate programmes.
How To Process NYSC Evaluation Letter
During evaluation processes, the Ministry of Education will check whether the foreign Institution you studied in is accredited or not.
As someone who studied in a foreign country, it is responsible to make sure your school is accredited where in doubt you can visit the federal ministry of education for confirmation. They usually compile list of graduates from their Institution and forward to the Federal Ministry of Education, Abuja. The ministry of education upon recieving it will process your evaluation letter and send back to your school.
How long does it take NYSC evaluation to reflect?
The whole process can take one to two weeks, and times up to a month depending on your school.
