The NYSC Call-up number is a unique number that NYSC assign to every Prospective Corps Member after online registration. Two person can share the same name but cannot share the same Call-up letter.
NYSC uses your Call-up number to identify you; it also tells the NYSC management the school you graduated, the year you are mobilized etc. Just like your school Matriculation number that shows your department, year admitted and serial number.
As far as NYSC is concern, your Call-up number is your real you, the number cannot be mistaken, stolen or lost. It will be sent to your mobile phone after you have completed your online registration. Also, your Green-Card and Call-up letter will carry the number.
