How to Apply For NYSC Revalidation and Remobilization?

- Advertisement -

Every year thousands of Nigerian graduates register for the National Youth Service Corps program and are sent to different parts of the country to serve their fatherland. This process is called NYSC Mobilization,

While the vast majority is successful in their mobilization attempts, not everyone reports to NYSC camps, and also, not everyone completes their service year,

If you are looking for information on NYSC Remobilization or revalidation, this guide is for you. Note, for either of them to work; you must have registered for mobilization before in any previous batch.

NYSC Revalidation

NYSC Revalidation option is meant for those who;

  • Those refused to go camping after they have been mobilized maybe because of distance or financial reason.
  • Those forgot to check their NYSC dashboard for their letter of mobilization. As funny as it sounds, a friend missed camp because he thought the letter would be mailed to him or sent via school, forgetting he will have to print it from his dashboard. The lack of email/SMS notification for the printing of letter didn’t help anyways.
  • Those who forgot vital documents when they went camping hence they weren’t registered.
  • Those who went late to camp and got there after the registration window must have expired, so they weren’t registered.
  • Anyone who had been mobilized and for any reason didn’t show up at camp or wasn’t registered at camp.

If you don’t have a State Code number (Unique NYSC number that identifies your Service State, Year, Batch and personnel number), you fall into this group. A State Code number looks like State/Year&Batch/personnel number, eg KW/17B/0001, DT/18C/1786

How to Apply for NYSC Revalidation?

To apply for revalidation, you will have to follow those who are applying for mobilization.

Once a new batch of Prospective Corp Members are applying for mobilization, open the NYSC Portal and click on the Registration button.

On the next page, you will see the Revalidation option. Click on it and follow the instructions to revalidate your profile (usually only fingerprint recapture) and voila, you are done.

If revalidation is done within the same batch (maybe you missed Batch A Stream 1 Camping and apply alongside Batch A Stream II) you will likely be posted back to the same state. Else, if you missed Batch A camping and applied alongside Batch B or C, you will be posted to a different state.

NYSC Remobilization

NYSC Remobilization is meant for those who;

  • after registration at the CAMP or after being posted to a PPA (place of primary assignment) absconded and didn’t complete the service year.
  • May also be the option for corpers who were sent out of camp for participating in sexual activities or gambling, smoking, fighting. I am only certain about the first option.

So if you didn’t report to your PPA for the period of 90 days to 110 days, you would be declared as ABSCONDED CORP MEMBER. Unlike Revalidation, you will not go camping again (NYSC doesn’t allow an individual to camp twice).

How to Apply for NYSC Remobilization?

On the average, it takes the NYSC state secretariat about 5 months to declare a corp member as absconded and notify the main headquarters. This is because the LGI, ZI and State Coordinator will have to verify that you have fled.

If you absconded immediately after camp without collecting any allowance (other than the ones paid at the camp) good for you. If you absconded from service after receiving an allowance outside the camp, you are refunding it. The steps to apply for Remobilization is quite stressful though.

You will have to make sure you have been declared as absconded corp member else you can go back and continue service with Extension of service. If you have been reported as an absconded corp member and remobilised, you will be posted to a different state for service.

To apply for Remobilization;

1. You will have to travel down to the NYSC secretariat of the state you were posted to (good luck if it is far from you).

2. There, locate the Office of Corps Discipline and Reward. Inform them that you want to apply for remobilization and you came to check for “LETTER OF DECISION“.

If the state officials haven’t sent their letter of decision to Abuja, you will be given the option of returning to service with extension for the number of days missed. If they have submitted their decision, the head of the department will check if the National Headquarters have sent a remobilization decision.

If no, your long wait begins. Letter of decisions usually takes about 3 months to return from Abuja (except you somehow manage to influence the speed, maybe by divine intervention). If there is a letter of decision, good, if not you go home and return some other time.

3. Go to your bank (the one you registered for collection of allowee) and request for Bank Account Statement. This will serve as proof that you either received an allowance or not. If you did not receive any allowance outside the camp, go to the next step. If you did, calculate how much NYSC paid into your account and refund via REMITA.

4. To refund via REMITA, go to a CYBER CAFE and inform them you want to make REMITA payment to the TREASURY SINGLE ACCOUNT under NYSC, and select Personnel Cost as Purpose of Payment?(you can verify this by heading to the Accounts department of the State NYSC and asking for directions on how to refund allowance).

Make the payment at the nearest bank using your generated RRR number and make about four photocopies of the Teller, Remita payment slip and Account Statement as proof.

5. After presenting your Account Statement? (and proof of payment in case you refunded allowee) at the Corps Discipline and Reward office, you will be asked to write a letter to the DG informing Him of your willingness to return to service. The Head of Corps Discipline and Reward will guide you on how to do that.

6. Next, you will be sent to the ICT office to submit the documents alongside a copy Letter of Decision.

7. Then you go home and wait for remobilization portal to open (usually a week after camp). Go to NYSC portal, click on remobilization,

Select the option with? “click here if you registered online and in camp” and log in.

If you see a successfully remobilised message, you can proceed to print remobilization slip? on your dashboard and also Certificate of remobilization.

vii. head over to the NYSC secretariat of the new state you have been posted to and begin serving immediately. When remobilised, you only serve 11 months.

NOTE: In case your letter of decision has not been sent, you can go ahead to get your statement of account and refund the allowance if any (excluding whatever you received at the camp). This will speed things up once you get the letter of decision.

Mind you, the only way to know if your letter of decision has been sent is by visiting the office of Corps Discipline and Reward at the state headquarters of the state you were posted to.

Except you have your way of communicating with them, be prepared for transportation cost. If you have any questions or suggestion don’t forget to leave it below.

Please I have the same issue, how did you solve yours? Thanks you

Godson Ogbonna

Please I want to know if the online remobilization registration will require fresh thumb printing? I had difficulty in my thumb printing when I went to camp in 2018, though it was later successful and I absconded afterwards.
I guess the machine from the cafe was faulty because some of my friends we used same cafe had similar issues. In fact, they faced this thumb printing challenge during their service year and most times they had to resort to manual clearance.


Hi. Pls I was posted to somewhere I couldn’t go to. And I revalidated for batch c 2019 stream 2. But I couldn’t also go. Am I supposed to revalidate or rembolise now


Hello Esther,
I’m currently in the same shoes……can you post your email address so I can contact You?

Okpala ogechukwu

I find this very useful thanks for the article but hope the remobilization won’t take up to a year because I have plans of absconding to return next year for service.

Amodu Victoria

Is it possible to do revalidation more than once?


If I don’t report to camp and try to work out my posting on stream 2 to the state of my choice will it work?


Hello, good afternoon.
Please I really need your help, I applied for remobilization since September 2019 and till now I have not been mobilised. I was always checking my dashboard to see if there was anything new on it, after sometimes I saw DISCIPLINARY CASE written on my dashboard and when I click on it, I saw something like NO MASSAGE TRIAL FOUND, please what dose it means because am confused.


After reading your article, I decided to log in to my dashboard again, I click on print slip and behold my remobilization letter was there but I was still posted to the same state again, and am to serve for 11 months.
My question is if I go my my marital documents and others, can I still be relocated to my husband residence?
And since I was not paid before, will I still be paid the monthly allowance during my service now.

Jennifer Egbunike

Hello good day pls , I need your advice, I registered for nysc I was sent my call up number and letter but I couldn?t go to camp because I was not in Nigeria and still not in Nigeria. I want to know if I can do revalidation without
My thumbprint as i am not available to do it myself

Abdulmajeed Abba Ali

Hi pls nancy how do u do bout your remobilization issue I have same issue with you.

Ojo Samuel Oluwatobi

Sir Lawrence, concerning the thumb printing issue sir.I have done thumb printing initially when I was registering. Now if I want to revalidate would I still need to do thumb printing because there is no thumbprint option there. It only says that once I click revalidation button it would revalidate automatically.Could that mean there is no need for thumbprinting any longer


Sir lawrence,
I absconded from Nysc 2019 B 1, I want to know if I cant apply for remobilization on the portal without getting letter of decision from the state secretariat were I was posted to initially.
Thank you.

Good day, I’m having a issue concerning revalidation. I was mobilized with batch c 2018 but due to military training I couldn’t go and now I’m back I want to revalidate so I can apply for exemption but what I’m seeing on my dashboard I don’t know what to do

Arinze Remigius

Abdulhadi Sulaiman

Pls is it possible to take a two weeks exeat from camp for exam purposes.


Hii lawrence I received my letter of remobilization but i only got the state I?m posted to and the call up number but not where to report to in the given state or time to report


Hello, thanks for the enlightenment.
I’m having an issue.
I am being mobilised for camping on 5th December 2020 but I don’t want to go for camping.
Reason is that, I’m pursuing another degree course and post ume will be on very soon. And if I start serving and at the same time get admission, I won’t be able to complete my service and I will be an absconded corper. If I had knowledge of this article, I wouldnt have registered at first.

Please, can I leave going to camp and revalidate when I am ready? Assuming it takes 6 years from now, can I still validate
Please answer is urgently needed

Blessing Dumark

Please, how can I be sure that NYSC will post me to another state come January 2021, as I revalidates my registration. I missed out this year because of health issues. Thank you.

Thanks for the insightful article. A lot of sites om the web hardly have sufficient information on the issue of revalidation.

I do have some questions because I want to be absolutely sure that I didn’t make a mistake deferring my 2020 batch b stream 1b mobilization even though I was automatically revalidated in the second stream.

– Will fresh states appear for me to select from during the 2021 fresh batch?
– Will I have to go to a Cafe to revalidate or can it be done at home?



Hello Sir Laurence, I have been re-mobilized and posted to another state.I reported to the secretariat of the new state and was told that they couldn’t generate my state code number and ask me to report after camping. On getting there immediately after camping, I was told the portal has been closed and there was no deadline stated in the letter. Kindly advise of the way forward. Thank u sir


Same issue here….pls help


If I was to go to camp with the current steam but didn’t and printed my call up letter.
What is my next line of action?

Sulaiman Munirah

Hello sir, i’ve gone through all the process for Remobilization I was mobilised but due to wrong information I wasn’t able to get to the state I was mobilised on time. On getting there they said I have to apply for new one. Now my dashboard info is changed…pls am I going to apply with the current info or my previous info. Thanks
