Top 10 NYSC Online Registration Challenges PCMs Are Facing

We will discuss the top 10 NYSC online registration challenges that Prospective Corps Members (PCMs) usually encounter during registration.

There are common problems that could hinder Prospective Corps Members from registering for NYSC online.

Top 10 NYSC Registration ChallengesSome of the most common challenges they are facing are listed below;

1. No record found on the NYSC Senate list

Many Prospective Corps Members (PCMs) usually face this challenge during online registration. This problem usually occur when your Institution is yet to submit Senate list hard copy to NYSC. You can check out why you see ‘No record found’ on the NYSC Senate list. Also, I recommend you read this article, NYSC online registration without seeing your name on the Senate list.

2. No Available State Slot

You are likely to encounter this problem, especially when your registration comes too late. If you see “Sorry there is no available state slot” when you want to select States of choice during online registration, it means that those who registered before you have taken all the available States, and no more States left for you to choose.

Because of this No available state, many PCMs will be unable to complete NYSC registration. To solve this post, you need to patiently wait until NYSC resolve the problem. See, why you see sorry there is no available state slot.

3. You are in Stream 2

This one can be so annoying. So, after happily creating profile on the NYSC portal to start online registration, you will see a shocking message which read as “You are in Stream 2”. If you are having this problem, read this article,  Why you see you are in Stream 2 on your NYSC dashboard.

4. Unable to make payment

Unable to make payment during the NYSC online registration can be frustrating. A lot of PCMs out there are unable to make payment up till now after several failed attempt. If you are having this problem, see how to make payment on the NYSC Portal.

5. You have not been evaluated

Only foreign trained graduates suffer this particular problem because they need to be evaluated before they can register online. To solve this problem, effected person needs to upload his/her evaluation letter. See how to get NYSC evaluation letter for foreign trained graduates.

6. Unable to login to NYSC dashboard

There are some Prospective Corps members who will forget the Password they use to login to NYSC portal. So, when trying to reset the password it will not be going through. To solve this problem go the NYSC secretariat in the state you are. See the NYSC secretariat address in all the States in Nigeria.

7. You have been exempted

Those who graduated at the age of 30 and above will be exempted from service during online registration. See how NYSC calculate age limit for mobilization.

8. No Verification email

At the first stage of NYSC online registration, you will be required to create a profile according. However, this may hinder you as you may have problem receiving verification email to continue your registration.

You keep refreshing your mail and up to 2 days, you can’t see anything. To resolve this issue, relax and give it more times.

9. Awaiting Call Up number

Your NYSC call up number may not be ready immediately after registration, therefore you cannot print your Green Card. For this one, relax and be patient, NYSC will surely hit you with your call up number. See how NYSC call up number look like.

10. Finger print problem

During NYSC online registration, you may find it difficult to thumb print. Some desperate PCMs may ask another person to thumb print for them. On no account should you allow another person to thumb print for you. If you are having challenge to thumb print, keep trying until you get it.

There are many more NYSC registration challenges but we will stop here. You can tell us about your NYSC registration experience in the comment section below.
