What Is NYSC Senate List

The Senate list is that particular list that contains the names and details of all qualified graduates of an institution for the National Youth Service Corps program.

One of the first steps of NYSC mobilization is the senate list because it’s through this list that the NYSC management will know that you exist and you are qualified for a particular batch.

The NYSC system doesn’t know you or recognize you from anywhere and it’s through the senate list that your institution will upload that will put you on the NYSC database in other to participate in the National youth service corps program.

Who Will Compile The List?

There is a little misconception as some people think NYSC will be the one to release the senate list. This is not true because the senate list will be from your institution. Some institutions requires a pre-mobilization form while others mobilize automatically. You can CLICK HERE to read the full details and explanation about the Pre-mobilization form.

Your school recognizes you, and they know every of your academics details. Therefore they know if you are a graduate and you are qualified for mobilization. In a simple sentence, your institution is responsible for the list.

The Senate List Process

The first step is the compilation of the list by your institution after which the list will be pasted at the Division of Student Affairs (DSS) or made available on your school portal.

After corrections and verification by individuals, then the list will be uploaded on the NYSC portal for NYSC to recognize that all the names on the list are qualified for the current batch.

At this point, if you go to the NYSC Portal you will not see your name yet. All you will get is ‘No Record Found’. This is because there are still two more steps before the senate list will appear on the NYSC Portal.

After your institution uploads the senate list on the NYSC portal, they still need to send the hard copy to the NYSC headquarters in Abuja for verification before it will go live.

NYSC Verification Of the List

A while ago, this step became important because of the corruption level of some institutions. Some schools will take money from individuals and just add their names to the senate list without being a graduate or completing the academic year.

Some schools will mobilize someone that is not qualified just because the person offers them money. Based on this and some other necessary factors, the NYSC management decided to be verifying the hard copy submitted by an institution with a JAMB matriculation list.

After the proper verification, then the senate list will be live on the NYSC Portal and everybody whose names are on the senate list will be able to verify their details on the NYSC Portal.

Once you are able to verify your name on the NYSC Portal, then you will be able to register successfully.
