>>How to get your NYSC Call-up letter*
For those who paid about N3,000 to the NYSC during online registration, will be able to print their Call-up letter online.

While those who do not pay the money will have to travel to their various institutions to pick it up their call-up letter.

One advantage of paying to print your NYSC Call-up letter online is that you can never lose the document, since you have the soft copy, and can be able to print and re-print it as many times as you wish; unlike when the one you pick it up from your Institution which has no duplicate or replacement.

Those who opt to pick up their Call-up letter from their Institution should guide their it very well because there is no replacement if it damage or lost.

However, there are some critical information that I will show you which must be in your NYSC Call-up letter.
I will also show you the sample of the NYSC Call-up letter and where to find the key information when you finally get your own.

But before that, another important thing you should also take note of is, your Call-up letter must be printed in COLOURED.

NYSC Call-up Letter Sample, and Things To Look Out For
Below are the information you should look out for on your NYSC Call-up letter:

(A. The Compatriot Constitutional Welcome:

"Dear Compatriot, I am happy to inform you that by the provisions of NYSC Act Cap N84 of the laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004, arrangements have been completed for you to participate in the National Youth Service Corps Scheme for One Calendar Year and you should report as follows:"

4. Address of Orientation Camp:

(C. The Official Message

In the second part of the letter, there is an important message you should read.

1. This letter is a proof that you have been called-up for National Service. You must, therefore, present it to the State Coordinator, National Youth Service Corps of the state you are deployed to before you can be registered. All persons called-up are those whose results have been approved by the University Senate or the Polytechnic Academic Board and are also presented by their institutions to the National Youth Service Corps for mobilization. Registration at the camp shall only be for a period of 2 days. Be informed that there shall be no further registration in camp after the cut-off date and time.

2. For the registration procedure, however, you are requested to bring to camp your original statement of result, Institution identity card, and 8 recent passport photographs. In addition, if you are a Medical Doctor, Pharmacist or an Optometrist you will be expected to bring along original of your registration certificate with the Nigerian Medical Council, Pharmacist Board or Optometrist Registration Council and evidence of completion of housemanship or internship.

3. Arrangement has been made to pay the sum of One Thousand Five Hundred Naira (#1,500.00) as Transport Allowance in the camp. Also the sum of One Thousand Naira (#1,000.00) shall be paid to you as local Transport Allowance. The above allowances are to be collected at the orientation camp of your state of deployment.

4. I sincerely hope that you will participate fully in this noble scheme, bearing in mind that the nation will benefit from your participation. The motto of NYSC is “Service and Humility” which should be your motto throughout your year of National Service.

5. As a participant in the orientation course, you will be required to take to the camp your pillow and pillow case, mosquito net, bed sheets, plates, cutlery, bucket, drinking cup and torch light for your personal convenience.

6. I enjoin you to contribute your best to the Nation in the programmes that have been carefully designed for the achievement of the lofty objectives of the scheme. You are expected to resume duty at your place of primary assignment immediately after the orientation as no leave whatsoever shall be granted for further preparations after assumption of duty. Please note:
i. It is an offence to serve more than once in the NYSC scheme.
ii. Prospective corps members are prohibited from bringing automobiles, motorcycles, bicycles etc. to camp
iii. That your one year of continuous national service begins from the date you report for service at the orientation camp
iv. Prospective corps members are reminded that national service is about service to the fatherland; therefore they need to accept their deployment to any state in good faith. However, relocation is granted only to married women, to enable them join their husbands, and those with life threating ailments.
