How To Solve the Problem of “No Record Found” On NYSC Senate List

The annoying and frustrating thing that Prospective Corps Members (PCMs) encounter when trying to verify their names on the NYSC Senate list uploaded by their Institution on the NYSC online portal is an error message which read as, “No Record Found. Contact your school for verification of the approved list

This message can be so frustrating, especially when other PCM have started seeing their names on the Senate List, and the online registration is about to start or has started.

During this period, there used to be panic among those who have not seen their names on the list. However, this can even become worse, especially when some people who graduated from the same Institution as you have seen their names but your own keep displaying “No record found” as if your village people are following you.

How To Solve the Problem of “No Record Found” On NYSC Senate List

Below are the steps to follow:

1. Make sure you insert your correct Matriculation Number

Most Prospective Corps Members usually make this mistake. Your Matriculation Number must be correctly inserted using your school format of writing it. Different schools use different format, i.e. 2011554020, 2011/5540/020, Esut/2011/020 etc. However, it’s your responsibility to find out the correct format your school matriculation number is being written. Also, kindly note that Matriculation number is not the same as JAMB Registration number, some PCMs mistake the two! Your Matriculation number is the personal identification number that your school assigned to you when your were admitted. You normally write this number of your exam papers.

2. Your Surname must be properly spelled

Some people when they wrote JAMB, their name was not properly spelled, and they think that it will change by entering or writing the correct ones when submitting their name to their school. It is most likely that the Surname as used in JAMB will be used to upload your name unless you applied for a change of name through JAMB.

3. Use Your First Name In Place of Surname

If the Surname you are using is not working, try to use your first name in place of your surname, because it might be that your school is using your Surname and other names interchangeably. Try using all other names you have as Surname when checking your name on the Senate list to see if any of them will work.

4. Your Date of Birth should be correct

Make sure your Date of Birth is correctly entered. It is funny that some people suddenly change their Date of Birth while in school by merely writing what feel like, and now they have graduated, they forget the one they supplied to JAMB. Please, try to remember and enter that date of Birth you used when writing JAMB.

Note: Sometimes when click “year” dialogue box on the NYSC portal to enter your year of birth, the box will not be ‘clicking’, just leave it that way and click “Search” button after you have entered other details.

5. Contact your school

If you apply the four recommended solutions above, and you are still seeing “No record found…” contact your school to ask them about the progress of the senate list. If they tell you that they have not submitted, then don’t bother yourself, wait patiently until they submit. But if they said that they have submitted or if some people in your school have already seen their names on the list, then implement Number 6 solution below.

6. Go and try if you can register online:

If the online registration has started, what you should is to login to the NYSC registration portal to try if you can be able to register. The is because your name might have been uploaded by your school on the portal but due to some hitches on the NYSC system, you keep getting “No record found…” So, if you proceed to register and it goes through or allows you without stopping your by displaying message that read as “Your Institution has not fulfilled the mandatory documents requirements” or something similar to that, just smile and continue to register. But if it stopped you again, relax and wait for your school to upload their senate list. DO NOT panic because they will surely upload it. In other words;

If you try to register online and your details appear, continue with the registration, and forget about the Senate List. But if you cannot be able to register online, go ahead to contact your school, at the Directorate of Students’ Affairs.
