10 things you must know before NYSC online registration begins

All the Prospective Corps Members are advised to go through this article before they start online registration.

These are 10 things you must know:

1. You must have a functional e-mail address. NEVER make use of the cyber café attendant's e-mail adress. Create your own e-mail now if you don't have. It's simple and easy to create. Gmail is better and we recommend it.

2. Make sure you Register with your active phone number. NEVER use the cyber man's phone number or that of your friend or parent. This is because, as time goes on, you would be getting important text messages from NYSC. And I'm sure you would not like to miss it.

3. After registration, keep checking your e-mail. A URL address would be sent directly to your e-mail. That address will redirect you to an NYSC website where you can print your green card.

4. During online registration, you will get to a stage where you would be required to pay the sum of N3,000 preferably online with your debit card (Mastercard or Verve). It is mandatory only for those that want to print their call-up letters online; you need not to pay if you wish to collect it from your institutions.
5. Biometric Verification must be done by yourself. Another person must not do it in your place. Make sure you complete the process. It is very important. Do not allow anyone to do it for you. If your thumb is not showing, don't tell that guy beside you to quickly do it for you, but continue trying until it goes through.

6. You must choose four(4) states from six geopolitical zones in Nigeria.
Note: You are not allowed to choose your state of origin and state you studied.

7. In the camp, the following documents will be required: Call-up letter (original), Green Card, School ID card, Medical fitness paper from a government hospital and Original statement of result. Don't laminate them.

8. Make sure you change your password after printing out your call-up letter, so as the cyber man won't go to your mail without your consent.

9. Your Green Card and Call Up Letter should be in colored print, and not in black&white.

10. Don't register by proxy, do your registration by yourself or atleast be present when it will be done.
