1. NYSC Discharge Certificate 

This is the official document printed and presented by the body to all “served” corps members. By the “served”, it means such a graduate had registered for NYSC mobilization, participated in the three-week camping, and posted to a place of assignment where he had been serving for the past 12 months.

Sample of NYSC certificate. Recent ones have a passport while old ones didn't.

After a year-service at his or her place of assignment, NYSC organizes a passing out ceremony. There, the service award and present this certificate to him or her.

2. NYSC Exemption Certificate

This is awarded or given to a graduate who doesn’t participate in the one-year service. Such a graduate could not be mobilized because he or she is over-aged (i.e. above 30) at the time to register for NYSC mobilization.

NYSC disallows graduates above 30 to take part in the one-year programme of service. Hence, instead of giving them a Discharge certificate (for the served ones), they are presented with Exemption Certificates.


Meanwhile, such an over-aged graduate must equally register for the NYSC mobilization but will not be mobilized.

His or her exemption certificate will be delivered to the school. Hence, such a person may choose to pay for it online or wait for the school to receive it.

3. NYSC Exclusion Certificates 

Graduates of any university, polytechnics, distance learning centre, etc for a programme that is part-time based, sandwich, distance learning, etc are given exclusion certificates.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re over-aged or not. Once you didn’t graduate from a regular full-time course, you've presented an exclusion certificate instead.

Graduates who belong to this category must equally register for NYSC mobilization online. They’re also to pay the exclusion fee on the portal or a bank. However, when NYSC starts to be mobilizing perspective serving corps members, their own certificates will be ready for printing online. Such a certificate will be printed from their NYSC dashboard in colour to be recognized as original and official.

    1. You register, online, for NYSC, when those who are going to camp are registering too. After that, NYSC will send your Exception certificate to your school. You go there and collect it.

    1. Why did you take a primary school certificate to camp. Nobody is asking for that. You should ask for what to do about it from your camp

    1. I don't know, You should do the calculation yourself. Once you're less than 30 or exactly 30 with the graduation date sent to NYSC, you will serve. Otherwise, you may not be lucky

  13. Please does nysc send out the exclusion or exemption certificate to the schools of the graduates who did part time programme or is it to be printed online? And like how much do part-time pay to get theirs?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Exclusion letters for part-time will be paid for online after mobilization registration is done. It's about #3000. Exemption certificates will be sent to the school after mobilization registration done and payment made at the same price.
