The NYSC Orientation Course is a pivotal moment for every Nigerian graduate, marking the exciting commencement of their service year to the nation. It serves as a platform for national integration, cultural exchange, and the acquisition of essential skills. However, before unlocking these enriching experiences, certain camp registration requirements must be met.

NYSC camp registration documents


This article serves as your comprehensive guide, outlining the essential documents you need to prepare for a smooth and successful registration process.

Equally important, don’t forget to also check out the essential items needed in camp for an idea about what you need to pack for your comfort at the orientation camp.

Having said that, let’s get down to business!

NYSC Camp Registration Requirements

Here’s a breakdown of the essential items you need to have readily available:

  • Academic Certificate
  • School ID Card
  • Call-Up Letter
  • Green Card
  • Passport Photographs
  • Medical Certificate of Fitness
  • Professional License (for medical graduates)
  • Addendum
  • Uploaded Documents (married women, foreign graduates)
  • Medical Report (optional)

Academic Certificate / Statement of Result

This document, issued by your institution, officially validates your graduation and degree acquisition. It certifies that you have fulfilled the minimum educational criteria for participating in the NYSC program. You must verify that the name and graduation date on your certificate corresponds with the information on your NYSC dashboard. Any discrepancies, particularly in the date of graduation, may result in you being sent back home.

Polytechnic graduates are mandated to provide both their HND and OND certificates or statements of results. Similarly, foreign graduates must present their original certificates for validation purposes.

School ID Card

The School ID card is required during camp registration to confirm your identity and verify that you are a genuine graduate of the institution you claim to have attended. This measure assists NYSC officials in verifying the authenticity of PCMs. Even though the final year ID card is preferred, any valid school ID, regardless of expiration status will suffice for this purpose.

NYSC Call-Up Letter

The call-up letter specifies your posting specifics, such as your deployment state, orientation camp venue, and reporting date. This document grants you entry to the camp and will be ready for printing a few days prior to the camp’s opening. Print it in color and do not laminate it.

Green Card

The green card is the printed slip obtained after successfully registering online. It confirms NYSC registration and includes essential information like your call-up number, details of your next of kin, and other personal data. Print the document in color, just like the call-up letter, and avoid laminating it.

Passport Photograph

To ensure smooth identification across various services, please submit recent passport photographs with a white background. You’ll need them for your meal ticket, bank account opening, SAED registration, and many other important procedures. I advise you take along at least seven copies. This will save you time and hassle in the long run.

Medical Fitness Certificate

All participants must obtain a medical certificate of fitness issued by a government or military hospital in Nigeria to ensure their well-being. This document certifies that the bearer is in good health and capable of engaging in camp activities. I strongly advise you to prioritize obtaining this well in advance to avoid any delays.

📌 Bonus: Send a Whatsapp message to process your medical fitness certificate which is a compulsory requirement for camp registration.

License for Medical Graduates

To register, medical graduates must have a permanent professional license issued by their respective field’s regulatory body. This allows authorities to confirm their eligibility to practice in the healthcare sector and facilitates potential deployment during the service year.

Addendum for Camp Registration

Addendum is the pop-up message you see when you log in to your NYSC dashboard. It’s a compulsory document you must sign and take to the orientation camp. Print the addendum from a computer as you cannot download it like the other documents on your dashboard. I advise printing it at the cyber cafe when printing your green card.

Uploaded Documents

Foreign-trained graduates must bring the original copies of all documents they uploaded during online registration and the physical verification exercise to camp. In addition, married female PCMs must report to camp with the documents they uploaded online.

Medical Report

If you wish to apply for relocation due to health reasons or need to exit camp, you must provide a medical report. You must however know that this is not required for camp registration. This document provides a detailed assessment of the applicant’s health condition and serves as a basis for the decision-making process.
