NYSC online registration requirements
Online registration during Batch A 2024


Before embarking on enrollment in the NYSC program, it’s crucial to confirm your eligibility. In a previously written article about the eligibility criteria for NYSC, I explained in detail the requirements for participating in the program. The discussion outlines key requirements, primarily focusing on academic qualifications and age. If you’re unsure about your eligibility status, this resource is helpful to get you started.

Now that everyone is on the same page, let’s delve into what you need for online registration.

What are the requirements for NYSC registration?

Starting with Batch ‘A’ 2024, the NYSC implemented updates to its online registration process to curb impersonation and prevent repeated enrollments. These improvements include:

  • Mandatory National Identification Number: Beginning from 2024 Batch A, applicants must now provide their NIN during registration.
  • Live Image Capture via Webcam: In a shift from the previous method of uploading passport photos, applicants now capture their live image through a webcam.
  • Biometric Capturing: While not a new feature, biometrics ensures accurate identification of PCMs by linking them to their records, thereby preventing impersonation and fraud. This enhances the reliability of the registration process by ensuring registrations are not done in proxy and subsequent during registration in camp.

Below, you’ll find the most recent requirements, reflecting the current NYSC online registration process.

1. National Identification Number (NIN)

The NYSC collaborated with the National Identification Management Commission (NIMC) to verify the identity of Nigerian graduates on their database during online registration. This measure helps prevent identity fraud and ensures that individuals registering for the program are genuinely who they claim to be. Since NYSC uses the name provided by your school on the senate list, it is important that your name on NIN corresponds with it.

2. JAMB Registration Number

Additionally, serving as a means of verification and authentication during online registration, the JAMB registration number confirms that prospective corps members have successfully completed their tertiary education and have been duly admitted through the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB). Closely related also is the JAMB matriculation list which every PCMs ought to have their names on it.

3. Matriculation Number

This unique identifier, assigned to students upon matriculation into a higher institution, helps ensure that only individuals who have completed their academic studies are eligible to participate in the NYSC program.

4. Email address

The email address plays a crucial role in conveying important updates, notifications, and essential information throughout the registration process and the service year. It is advisable for PCMs to register with their personal Gmail account for faster deliverability of confirmation links during registration and accessibility in case of forgotten passwords.

Please note that additional procedures and requirements apply to foreign graduates who obtained their degree or diploma outside the country. Similarly, married female PCMs seeking concessional direct posting to their husband’s place of residence for convenience are subject to specific considerations.

Biodata Details for NYSC Online Registration Form

In addition to the mentioned requirements, you’ll be asked to provide  the following information during online registration:

  • Title
  • Gender
  • Marital status
  • Place of birth
  • Blood Group
  • Genotype
  • Nationality
  • State of origin (mostly pre-filled)
  • Local Government Area
  • Disability status
  • Health Status
  • Present contact address
  • Permanent address
  • Town/Village name
  • Signature
  • Next of kin data
  • Call-up number (if you’ve registered before)
  • Educational institutions attended (Primary to Tertiary)

  • Nigerian language(s) you speak

The application form pre-populates certain fields using information from your senate list and JAMB record. These pre-filled details include your first, middle, and last names, phone number, and date of birth. I omitted them from the list above for clarity and brevity.

Can I register for NYSC without inclusion on the senate list?

Inclusion on the Senate list is a prerequisite for mobilization into the National Youth Service Corps. Compiled by your institution’s senate board, this list confirms your academic records to the NYSC, essentially acting as a stamp of approval that demonstrates you meet the academic requirements for youth service.

How much is the fee for NYSC online registration?

To prevent potential exploitation, NYSC set 2,000 naira as the maximum amount to be collected for registration fees. Individual cyber cafe operators adjust their prices based on their local operating costs. You can search through this link for the list of NYSC accredited cyber cafes near you.

To be on the safe side, plan to budget between 5,000 and 7,000 naira for the entire registration process. This includes the mandatory payment made to NYSC during online registration for call-up letter printing.

With this guide in hand, navigating the NYSC online registration process shouldn’t be a challenge.

Remember, preparedness is key! Gather your documents, double-check the details, and face the registration process with confidence.

We would like to hear from you. Kindly ask questions and share your NYSC registration experiences so we can build a community of informed PCMs.
