Update: The official NYSC website is now live and updated. Click here for the page listing requirements.
Take these original documents and several photocopies to the NYSC headquarters in Maitama, Abuja:
- WAEC Certificate – They prefer the official waec- issued certificate, but this is only available five years after you take the exam. So if you don’t have it, just bring along your statement of results issued by your secondary school.
- University transcript
- University diploma
- Birth certificate
- Nigerian passport (what they’re after is the “seen on arrival” airport stamp)
- 2 passport photographs ( actually, make 20 prints because you’ll use them for camp registration)
You have to submit all these in person. So be in the country several weeks prior to the call up date because there is a cut off date for submission. Batch A 2008 is getting called up next week. Batch B will be called up in September.
When you’re filling out the application form at the headquarters, there’s a slot to put your first and second choices of the state you prefer to serve. Nigerian students don’t have this option on their own forms, so even though you’re not guaranteed your choice, word on the streets is that foreign-trained students receive special consideration.
The call up letters will be ready a week or a few days before you’re supposed to report at orientation camp. To claim your call up letter and find out where you’ve been posted to, take your passport back to NYSC headquarters.
