All You Need To Know About JAMB Matriculation List For NYSC

Understanding the JAMB Matriculation List

The JAMB Matriculation List is an official document that confirms your admission into a Nigerian tertiary institution through the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB). This is important because JAMB is the only authorized body for the process of admissions into Nigerian universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education.

If your name is not on the matriculation list, it simply means your admission status is irregular and unrecognized by JAMB. This renders you ineligible to participate in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) program which every Nigerian graduate is mandated to do.

In other simple words, the JAMB matriculation list is a necessary condition by the NYSC that every Prospective Corps Members (PCMs) will have to meet before registering for the program.

Why is the JAMB Matriculation List Important?

The most powerful weapon with which the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has chosen to fight academic fraud is the matriculation list. This necessitated the agency to combine forces with the NYSC as an effort to rid Nigeria of fraudulent graduates.

So, should your name not be in this official record of admissions, JAMB will not recognize your claims of graduation, which means your NYSC registration will be automatically rejected. This translates to the fact that you cannot be awarded the NYSC discharge or exemption certificate which is a prerequisite for any graduate in Nigeria.

While foreign-trained graduates are exempted from the JAMB matriculation list requirement by NYSC, it remains an essential step for locally-trained graduates. If you didn’t attend a tertiary institution in the country, take a look at the eligibility requirements for foreign graduates.

There is no need to panic if your name is missing from the matriculation list. Here is what you need to do to ensure you are on the JAMB matriculation list;

  • Login the JAMB e-facility platform.

  • Give it a few minutes and your name will be automatically added to the list.
  • If your name is still not added after these steps, submit copies of your JAMB admission letter and result slip to the Student’s Affairs Office of your institution.

What about those who did not gain admission through JAMB?

The matriculation list does not feature graduates who did not gain admission via JAMB. This is mostly the category of polytechnic graduates who were admitted by their school without passing through JAMB. To resolve this, they have to apply for JAMB regularization before their names can be included. This can be done by visiting a nearby JAMB CBT centre.
