How much does it cost to register for NYSC?

There are two major payments that every prospective corps member will make during NYSC online registration. Below are the payments;

1. Payment for NYSC Call-up letter (optional)

2. Payment for Cyber Cafe service

Let’s discuss these two payments in details so that you make no mistake.

Payment for NYSC call-up letter (optional)

Though this payment is optional but it’s very important, so I personally advise you to pay. To be able to print your Call-up letter online, you need to pay NYSC the sum of ₦3,048. If you don’t pay, NYSC will deliver your call-up letter to your institution instead of allowing you to print it online.

Foreign trained graduates who do not pay would have to visit the NYSC Abuja headquarters to ask for their call-up letters.So, only prospective corps members who want to PRINT their call-up letters online at the comfort of their home will pay ₦3,048.

PCMs who do not want to pay the ₦3,048 have the option of going to their schools to collect their Call-up letters.

www.nysc.org.ng Advantage of Paying ₦3,048 for Call-up letter

  • Paying ₦3,048 will save you the stress and cost of going to your Institution to pick-up your Call-up letter
  • You can never lose your Call-up letter since you can print and re-print as you wish.

Disadvantages of Paying ₦3,048

There is no disadvantage expect that it will cost you the sum of ₦3,048, you can see how to pay ₦3,048 to NYSC during online registration

Payment for Cyber Cafe service

This payment is the money that you will pay to Cyber Cafe owners for their services, unless the Cyber Cafe owner is your brother, friend or relation who may decide not to collect money from you.

But if you have a computer and or smartphone, you can do your registration by yourself without paying those in cyber cafe.

If you must do it in cyber cafe, the amount to pay Cyber Cafe owners depends on the negotiation between you and the Cyber Cafe owner.

However, Cyber cafe service cost ranges from ₦1,500 to ₦3,000 depending on your location.
