Congratulations on graduating from the higher institution if you are a fresh graduate. In this article, we will share the simple steps to help you check if your name is on the NYSC Senate list submitted by your alma mater.
The National Youth Service Corps is the body that supervises the mandatory one-year service of fresh Nigerian graduates. It was created on 22nd May 1973 by the then-military head of state Gen. Yakubu Gowon.
This period of national service (commonly called service year) allows these graduates to engage in community development projects and other activities that foster patriotism and togetherness in the nation.
Due to the mandatory nature of the NYSC scheme and its contribution towards nation-building, it is compulsory that all Nigerian graduates enroll in the scheme.
It is very difficult to find gainful employment without passing through this scheme.
Nature of NYSC
The NYSC scheme is mandatory. This means that all Nigerian graduates must pass through the program, especially if they want to work in the Nigerian economy.
Nigerians schooled outside the country are also eligible to serve within the scheme.
As a major contributor towards community development, most corp members within the scheme are sent to serve in rural communities across the country, especially in the educational sector.
How Often Does NYSC Mobilize Each Year
NYSC mobilizes graduates in three batches yearly: Batches A, B, and C. Each batch is divided into two streams: Streams 1 and 2.
This is due to the high number of Nigerians that graduate from tertiary institutions yearly.
NYSC Senate List
NYSC Senate list is the list of eligible graduates from tertiary institutions in Nigeria submitted to NYSC.
This list is compiled yearly by the various institutions’ Department of Students Affairs (DSA) and uploaded online on the individual school’s or NYSC portal. It can also be pasted physically on notice boards in the DSA.

Reasons Your Name May Not Be on NYSC Senate List
Here are some reasons why you received feedback on the NYSC portal that your name is not on NYSC Senate List:
- You are above 30 years old.
- There may be a very bad network.
- Theoretical issues involving your department, faculty, or the Department of Student Affairs (DSA).
- Your school has yet to forward their senate list to be uploaded to the NYSC portal.
- JAMB regularization.
- Your school has yet to mobilize graduates from your set.
It would be best to verify with your school (department, faculty, and Department of Student Affairs) to ensure no issues, such as the misplacement of your details.
This is necessary if you discover you are the only one (or very few) not mobilized in your department, or only your department was not mobilized in your school.
The NYSC scheme plays a vital role in nation-building. Therefore, it is important that every graduate promptly enrolls in the mobilization process.
