Does NYSC Use Year of Graduation or Year of Mobilization?

While preparing for NYSC mobilization, and you fear the year your school will send may be an issue, you start to ask, "which year will NYSC use for the mobilization?". Is it the year you graduate from the school and if delayed, is it the later year the school sends the list?

Are they going to consider the year of graduation or the year of mobilization (which may be different from the year of exact graduation)?


Let me break this down a bit.


Chioma is 29 years. She knows if she is a day older than 30, she may not be considered for NYSC. Instead, she will be left with an exemption certificate.


Now, Chioma is in her final year. Considering possible ASUU or ASUP strikes or any other usual problems affecting education in Nigeria, she is worried she can be older than 30, by the time her school will be ready to send names (senate list) to NYSC.


She will obviously graduate this year. What if the list is delayed beyond age 30?


Now, her position is, since she'll graduate by 29 or 30, she should be able to serve if NYSC uses the year of graduation instead of the year of mobilization, which may be a time she is older than 30.


However, if NYSC should use the year of mobilization, which will be, maybe 31, she has lost her chance for the clarion call.


This post will vividly show you the year that NYSC considers for mobilization if you're in a similar situation with Chioma. It will show you how to confirm the year sent by your school to NYSC and how to change that to favor you.

NYSC Uses the Year of Graduation Instead of the Year of Mobilization If Submitted Rightly By the School

Though, it may be difficult to know which one will be sent by a school. Will the school send your year of graduation in the senate list or the very year they're sending the list?


As the concerned graduate, you may not be sure which one your school will claim for you. If they claim the year of graduation that favors your serving age, you'll be in camp sooner.


You may be out of luck if they claim the year of posting which may not favor your present age.


Let's get this clearer in the next section!

Where You'll Know The Year Being Sent By Your Institution

During the NYSC Mobilization registration, pay attention to the first stage. After correctly entering your JAMB registration and the matric number, the page will refresh to display (right below) the information your school sent to NYSC.


This information will include the arrangement of your names - surname, first and middle name, grade, and graduation year.


Take note of the GRADUATION year.


With this, you will know if the graduation year sent will favor your mobilization or will kill your service dream.

Can You Change the Year to a Favorable Year During NYSC Registration?

Having established that the very year of graduation will be set to default in the NYSC form, you should think of altering this to favor you if the default year will force you to be above 30 if left unchanged.


The good news is YES, you can change the graduation year in your NYSC registration form.


It's not certain that NYSC or your school wants you to change it in the first place. However, the year, in the provided box, can be changed.


If the system would not want you to change it, the date wouldn't be made available for the alternation in the first place. Since the date can be reduced or increased within the form, you're allowed to change your destiny at this stage.


NYSC might have made the date changeable because they believed a few schools might make mistakes in the years of graduation being sent. Hence, they gave prospective members the chance to change things.

So, Where Specifically Can You Change the Graduation Year?

While filling out the main form after your fingerprints are captured, there are three stages to complete the main form. The first stage collects mainly your bio-data, the second stage collects your education details and the third collects your kit sizes and a few other details.


Pay attention to stage two where education details are filled in. You will fill the primary start and end years, so also the secondary and tertiary.


The stage will be like this:


Name of the Primary School

Qualification Obtained

Start Year: .....

End Year:  ......


Name of Your Secondary School

Qualification Obtained

Start Year: .....

End Year: ......


Name of foundation school (e.g where you had NCE, IJMB, OND, etc)

Qualification Obtained

Start Year: .....

End Year: ......


Name of Higher Institution (.g BSC, B.TECH, HND, etc)

Qualification Obtained

Start Year: .....

End Year:......*


Do you notice that the end year for the higher institution has the specific year in the box?


That's where you have to pay attention?


This is the year, your school claimed for NYSC that you completed your studies and graduated.  And in fact, it doesn't matter whether they're correct or not. If the date is left unchanged, that's the date the system will recognize and calculate things with.


It's you who must answer if the year submitted is favorable with your present age and NYSC.


This is the year with which you have to calculate the possibility of serving with NYSC.


Hence, this is the year of graduation which may be the same as the year of mobilization for some folks, or a year after the real graduation year for others.


However, watch out for the right year that will make you 29 or 30 if you're already overaged. Don't reduce it too excessively!


Once, the system calculates your date of birth, on the JAMB result/regularization and matches that with the one on the NYSC form, it will submit you and inform you to wait for your green card and call-up letter instead of an exemption certificate for those whose ages show they're 30+.

Conclusion

Your fate depends on the graduation year submitted by your school. It depends on the very year of graduation. If the year of graduation sent by your school favors you to be less than 30 years, you will serve. If the graduation year sent makes you more than 30 years, you won't be lucky.

    1. You will calculate your 30 from the date of birth on the JAMB through to date of mobilization sent to NYSC.

      Note that the date of mobilization, depends on how your school perceives it, may be the year of graduation or the present year you're registering for NYSC.

    1. NYSC will use your JAMB date of birth. If you won't want that, you can apply for change of date of birth, on the NYSC dashboard, using WAEC verification card. This will make them take the date on WAEC instead.

  17. Good day, During the course of my registration for the 2022 batch B orientation camp, the cafe I used (operator) forgot to include my year of admission and graduation into the university.
    I only noticed this after i printed out my green card yesterday, initially i complained but he said it doesn't matter. I just want to confirm if it will not have any effect on me going to camp or being deployed or have an effect on my certificate aswell.
    Thank you

    1. No, the error was not from the café. Of course, you were there during the registration, weren't you? And you saw that filled. The error was from the NYSC system. However, just as the cafe man had told you, it won't have any effect at camp or anywhere.

    1. If you're mobilized in 2020, but delayed your registration, you will still go to NYSC because the age as of the time you're mobilized was 29. But if you're just mobilized now, you won't be able to partake in the NYSC
