NYSC Registration Requirements For Married Women

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) allows married Prospective Corps Members to serve VERY CLOSE to where their husbands reside under ‘concessional deployment provision’ meaning that married women can now be posted to the same Local Govt where their husbands live unlike unmarried that can be posted to places very far from home i.e. from Enugu to Sokoto.

In this article, I am going to be showing you everything that you need to know about NYSC online registration for married women, so that you may get the juicy concessional deployment.

If you are a married female Prospective Corps Members (PCM), and you are reading this article, just know that you have finally landed on the right page. This article was specially written for you guys, and it’s going to answer all your questions concerning NYSC registration for married women.

For married men, I am sorry to say that ‘there is no spacial provision for you guys’ as of now. I believe that NYSC understands the scripture which says “Do not separate what God has joined together”, so I hope with time, NYSC will do something concerning married men so that the equation will balance.

I thank the management for giving married women the opportunity to be posted close to their husbands, while I use this same opportunity to ask them to balance the equation by also considering married men.


The act of NYSC posting a married woman to where her husband resides is called, “Concessional deployment”

Concessional deployment allows you as a married woman to serve in the state, city, local govt or even town where your husband reside. As you can see, married women are highly favored by NYSC, but they ought to strictly adhere to all the requirements for concessional deployment as mentioned on this page, otherwise, they will be posted as singles.

I know some singles will be jealous, anyway you better not be… because there are still more to enjoy as singles such as, “oringo”. Lolz!

So, even as a married woman, there are still things that could make NYSC not to post you where your husband reside. Just calm down, we will show you all that.

4 things that could make NYSC not to post you where your husband reside

  1. If you do not indicate your marital status as ‘married’ during online registration.
  2. If you select ‘Miss’ instead of ‘Mrs’ as your title during online registration
  3. If you have incomplete marriage documents to prove that your are married.
  4. If you upload one document in place of another. i.e uploading your husband’s ID in place of Marriage certificate.
  5. If you upload unclear scanned documents.

Alright, before I show you all the documents required from married women to upload during NYSC registration for concessional deployment, I’d like you to quickly check your name on the NYSC Senate List, because that is the NYSC basic requirement for both married and singles. Also, check your name on the JAMB matriculation list because it is very important as well. So, after confirming your name on those list, you can come back to this page, and then proceed to the main gist. Or proceed to the main gist, after you go back to check your name on those list.

Note: Even if NYSC grant you a concessional deployment to where you husband reside, right after registering online, you still need to report to the NYSC Orientation camp with all the uploaded documents, just in case.

For Pregnant women and Nursing mothers

All pregnant or nursing mothers should note that they will not be allowed to lodge in the NYSC camp like others. There is no accommodation for them because NYSC camp is not ideal for pregnant women or Nursing mothers.

The will all be asked to lodge off-camp, and will be coming to camp for registration and documents. Immediately after their registration and documentation, they would be asked to go home and wait till camp closing date, on the day camp will close, they are to report to camp and collect their posting letters to their Place of Primary Assignment (PPA).

Attention! Attention!! Attention!!!

Present fake document in the NYSC camp at your own peril. It can lead to decamping or prosecution as the case maybe.
