The management of The NYSC head by Brigadier General Sule Zakari Kazaure, released some requirements for the Registration as well as Mobilization for any Prospective Corps Members.

Requirements For Registration/Mobilization Of Graduates

This is to inform all prospective corps members, i.e. Nigerians who have graduated from Universities and Mono/Polytechnics both at home and abroad that In order to ensure a seamless registration, prospective corps members are to note the following for strict compliance:

    • The Website address is any of the following:
      • www.nysc.gov.ng
      • www.nysc.org.ng
      • www.portal.nysc.org.ng
    • Prospective Corps members should ensure that they have functional e-mail addresses that they can access and Nigerian (GSM) telephone numbers with which to register.
    • Locally trained prospective Corps members are expected to use correct Matriculation numbers to register
    • For locally-trained graduates, only those whose names appear in the Senate/Academic Board Approved Result lists submitted by their Institutions will have access to the register on the NYSC portal.
    • Foreign-trained prospective corps members should ensure that their Institutions are accredited. Where in doubt, it is their responsibility to approach Federal Ministry of Education for verification. The letter of verification must be uploaded during registration.
    • Those who graduated from Institutions outside Nigeria, (Foreign-trained graduates), are to visit the NYSC portal, register and upload the following documents:
      • West African School Certificate(WASC) (with not less than 5 Credits at 2 sittings) or its equivalent; or General Certificate of Education (GCE O’ Level) (with not less than 5 Credits at 2 sittings) or its equivalent; or NECO (with not less than 5 Credits at 2 sittings) or its equivalent; or High School Diploma or its equivalent.
      • First Degree or Higher National Diploma (HND) Certificate (Second Degree or Ph.D not necessary).
      • Transcript of the first Degree or HND.
      • International travelling Passport showing data page and date of departure for the course of study.
    • It is the responsibility of the prospective corps members who studied in non-English speaking countries to get their Certificates and Transcripts translated into English language before uploading.
    • All graduates of Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Physiotheraphy, Radiology, Optometry, Medical Laboratory Science and Pharmacy are expected to have their Certificates of Registration with their professional bodies. Payment receipts are not acceptable.
    • Unlike in the past, Foreign-trained graduates should NOT visit NYSC Headquarters, Abuja for verification of their documents. This exercise will now be done at the Orientation Camps. They should simply print their call-up letters on-line and report at the Orientation camps in their States of deployment, but should come to the camp with the original documents they uploaded for verification.
    • Anybody who presents any fake document will be demobilized and decamped.


    • Prospective corps members should ensure that Passport photographs used meet the following specifications:
      • Ensure your face (eyes, nose, ears, mouth and jaw) is fully shown without bending
      • Ensure the picture fills the frame and centralized
      • Ensure the Photo background is white or off-white with no shadow.
    • On no account should prospective corps members register by PROXY. They should also remember the fingers used for their biometric capturing as these will be used for verification at the orientation camps. Those who cannot be verified with their biometric at the orientation camp will not be registered.
    • Only prospective corps members who want their call-up numbers sent to them through SMS and wish to PRINT their call-up letters on-line are expected to pay the sum of Three Thousand Naira (N3,000.00) (see NYSC Portal on how to make payment).
    • Prospective Corps members who do not want to pay the N3,000.00 have the option of going to their schools to collect their call-up numbers and call-up letters.
    • All prospective corps members who paid for the online registration before but were not mobilized need not pay again.
    • Married female prospective corps members (whether locally or foreign-trained) should upload copies of their marriage Certificates, evidence of Change of name and their husbands’ place of domicile during registration.
    • The orientation camp is highly not ideal for pregnant and nursing mothers. Prospective corps members in this categoriy are therefore to note that they will not be accommodated.
    • Prospective corps members who graduated from Institutions located in the following Geo-Political Zones with challenges related to mobilization should contact the following Telephone Numbers between 8th and 27th February, 2016:
      • North Central – 08092142614
      • North East – 08102790538
      • North West – 08092142661
      • South East – 09038034460
      • South West – 07019190810
      • South South – 08092142616


All Part-time graduates are expected to register online and wait for collection of their Letter of Exclusion at their various Institutions. For those willing to print the Letter of Exclusion online, this can be done on payment of Three Thousand Naira (N3, 000.00) only.

    Hello my name is Daniel and am having issue with my registration
    I have done all the necessary thing upload my document because am a foreign student and I have paid my 3000naira but to print my green card now is the problem it saying document not evaluate

    1. Hello Daniel, dont be worried, once you have successfully registered, you have been assigned a call-up number means you will serve. Lets troubleshoot the problem together. Since you are a foreign student you were required to verify your institution to be a accredited. If you are sure It is accredited, Have you confirmed the status of your payment?, If you are sure your payment has been confirmed, give them some time and check back they are evaluating your certificates and documents.

      If you are still unable to print, send an email to nyscsupport@nysc.org.ng
      On our end, we will inform our contact in NYSC and back to you via email.
      Thanks EDUSBAZE TEAM

        Although it was done in a cafe but she said she will check it again for me and as for the payment i was giving a print out from the bank the only thing that remain is the printing of my green card that is all.

        1. What does your dashboard show? Because It might just be the payment that has not been confirmed. Just be patient.

    Please can exemption problem due to above 30yrs be resolve for an international student … The age on my waec certificate is 17/03/87 while on my international passport is 17/03/1990 and on my birth certificate is same with the one on my passport. Although I can’t make it with this batch due to we just graduate but will surely go with the next batch.. What do you think concerning the two age… Thanks

  3. Stanley Iyere

    Please Admin can international student with exemption problem due to above 30yrs be resolve on.. The DOB in my waec certificate is 17/03/87 while on my international passport and birth certificate is 17/03/90, although I can not be mobilize for this batch A because I just graduated but hopefully by next batch I should be mobilize but I just want to find out now the solution to this problem. Pls reply. Thanks

    1. Dear Stanley, since you have two documentation showing that the DOB is 17/03/1990, you dont have a problem. You only need the WAEC verification when there was a mistake in your DOB from your institution. So if you use 17/03/1990 for your school, you might not need to worry about anything just register normally upload the “uploadables”. But if you want to play safe, you can go with those documents to WAEC and correct it from their end.

      1. stanley

        Thank you for your reply. I wanted to go to WAEC office to make the change on my WAEC certificate but was told that WAEC as stop correcting DOB on certificate.

        1. Please do go yourself, it will cost little or nothing. You can go after the mobilization of this batch because that is the reason they stopped. Meanwhile, i dont see you having an issue with registration anyway because your WAEC certificate is not carrying your DOB is it? So you are good to go

          1. Stanley

            Alright thanks for the assurance.

          2. Stanley

            Thanks for the hope, I pray everything works out well.

          3. Stanley

            Good evening Admin, My Waec certificate is actually Carrying my DOB on it.

  6. violet

  7. Michael Rita

    My name is Rita and i studied at Benin republic, t’s over nine days since I registered for nysc but am yet to get my call up number. I just found out my birth certificate wasn’t uploaded could it be the problem?

    1. Are you seeing, you have not been evaluated? if yes, they may be verifying your documents uploaded, if no it may be due to a missing document. either way, Send An email to nyscsupport@nysc.org.ng

  8. Iskil

    Admin, kindly help me to answer this question. I lost my Residence Permit as I came to Nigeria, and it was asked as one of the basic requirement for the registration at the NYSC portals. However, I have my Consulate card which was done in Cameroon so I need you to tell me what to do, can my consulate card save me?

    1. Yes, you need to do a police report of the lost items stating the resident permit. The most important Item Is your passport which will also be required in camp. Drop your phone number and i will get in touch with you

  9. Ikete
