Things needed for NYSC Orientation camp

The list of things needed for NYSC Orientation camp as compiled here is from experience and if you ignore, it might cost you more than you would have spent getting them before the orientation camp

For Documentation/Registration purposes (Inside camp):

  • Original statement of result,
  • Institution identity card and
  • Recent passport photographs: I’ll advise, if you have a friend who is a corps member, kindly beg them to use their crested vest (the one with NYSC logo and green & white colour round the neck) to snap passport. The reason for this is that the photographers in orientation camp will charge you as high as N1000 to get 8copies, this is something you would have ordinarily got for N200-N400 depending on the cost of things in your present area.
  • 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.
