How to Check NYSC LGA Monthly Clearance Status

In this post, I will show you step-by-step process on how to check NYSC LGA monthly clearance status at the NYSC portal.

It is no longer news that the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has added a new feature, “LGA Clearance” on its official website. This new feature allows Corps members to check their monthly clearance status.

Corps members do clearance every month and each clearance reflects on their dashboard at NYSC online portal.

This option is available for Corp members who already have a profile with NYSC.

If a corps member miss NYSC clearance, it will be recorded as “Absent” for him or her on the NYSC online portal.

Having one “Absent” will cause you not to receive your monthly allowance, while two or more “Absent” attract extension of your service year without pay. The more “Absent” you have the more severe the punishment will be.
