When students graduate from any of the Nigerian universities, it is usually something worth celebrating, but the icing on the cake is joining the National Youth Service Corps scheme to serve your fatherland for one year. Mobilization for the NYSC scheme is of great importance to the future career of every Nigerian graduate both home and abroad, thus, every intending corps member needs to understand the rudiments of the NYSC registration which entails several things like how to access the portal, create a personal account, log in, and begin the registration for mobilization.
The NYSC scheme is not restricted to Nigerian citizens who studied in local universities, it is extended to Nigerians studying abroad. This way, every Nigerian graduate can show their love and patriotism to the country. Thus, citizens of the country who finished college abroad are also required to log on to the NYSC portal and complete their registration for mobilization. After they have been mobilized, they are expected to come home for the mandatory one-year National service
The Real NYSC Portal Address
Those who are about to register on the NYSC portal have expressed their plight while trying to differentiate between the website designs for the different batches (Batch A, Batch B, or Batch C). The good news is that there are no multiple websites for each batch. The National Youth Service Corps uses the same website/portal for all the batches, whether it is A, B, or C and the official site is https://portal.nysc.org.ng. However, this does not affect the fact that NYSC leverages another website meant exclusively for sharing important updates. Prospective and existing corps members can visit http://www.nysc.gov.ng/ to get updates about the scheme.

In this piece, we must not fail to explain certain facts about the NYSC registration process. With the huge number of graduates churned out from Nigerian universities every year, it goes without saying that there will equally be a huge number of people on the NYSC waiting list. Once the portal is declared open for registration, the population that will be trying to access it is usually overwhelming. For this reason, the body thought it wise to create additional extensions to give people enough room to complete their registration seamlessly.
Many people who have visited the portal found themselves being re-directed to other extensions, but this should not cause confusion or make you think that you have landed on the wrong page. When you see yourself on extensions like the following:
There is no need to panic as you are still with the NYSC. Any of the portal addresses can take one to the official website for registration. When one link becomes overcrowded or too busy during the mobilization registration, people should try the others until they land on the less busy one.
