The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) is a mandatory one-year service program for all Nigerian graduates under the age of 30. However, there are instances where prospective corps members may miss their orientation camp or fail to report for service.

In such cases, the NYSC offers a revalidation process that allows these individuals to participate in the subsequent batch.

NYSC revalidation is a process that allows prospective corps members who have missed their orientation camp or failed to report for service to apply to serve in the subsequent batch.
