You do not need regularization provided your school is aware of the situation. Just ensure that your data uploaded to NYSC by your school is correct and accurate to reflect you course of study.

students passed through difficult times in their studies, and many students want to do the right thing all the time not even to alter their age for nysc, but they will like to serve their fatherland, I am pleading with the nysc management to please look into this. thank you

Like those before me commented, during registration, I discovered the course of study uploaded is different from the one I studied, I requested for change of course but it shows pending even after 5days. When I preview the green card, it still carries the wrong course. Pls when will it change? Thank you.

Please the date of birth on my waec certificate is wrong. I'm a foreign student and this is an important document. What can I do? The difference with the right date is the year. All other document I have shows the right date.
