If you are a prospective corps member who needs to correct your date of birth on the NYSC portal, you might be wondering how to go about it. Don’t worry, this blog post will guide you through the process and answer some of the common questions you might have.

First of all, you should know that the option to apply for date of birth correction will only be available after you have received your NYSC call-up number. This means that you cannot apply for it before the NYSC mobilization list is out.

So, if you don’t see the icon for date of birth correction on your dashboard, it is not because there is a problem with your profile, but because the call-up numbers have not been released yet.

Therefore, the first thing you need to do is to keep checking the NYSC portal for updates on when the call-up numbers will be out. You can also follow the official NYSC social media accounts for announcements and notifications.

Secondly, you should make sure that all other details in your profile are correct and up to date. This includes your name, gender, marital status, state of origin, institution, course, etc. If you need to make any changes in these details, you can do so before the call-up numbers are out.

Thirdly, you should prepare the necessary documents that you will need for the date of birth correction application. These are:

  • Your WAEC result that shows your correct date of birth. The result must be more than 4-5 years old.
  • Your WAEC verification PIN that you can purchase online or from any WAEC office.

Once you have these documents ready, you can proceed to apply for date of birth correction as soon as the call-up numbers are out.
