KUCCPS opens portal for Inter-faculty/ inter-institution transfers-Apply Now
The 2022 KCSE students will now be able to change or transfer the institution or programmes they chose.
This is after the Kenya Universities and College Placement Service opened its portal for applications for inter-institution transfer.
Students who wish to apply have been urged to make their applications on the KUCCPS student portal; http://students.kuccps.net.
However, the deadline is August 15, 2023.
Applicants will be charged an application-processing fee of Sh 1,000 per application.
The placement service noted that for one to be eligible for transfer, the applicant must have been placed in the programme they are seeking a transfer from.
In addition, the programme applied to must have been on offer in the year the applicant was placed.
“One will only be able to apply to transfer to a course whose minimum requirements one meets,” reads the notice.
“Applicants to degree programmes must meet the applicable cut-off point for their respective placement year.”
Further, an applicant may only apply to transfer to one programme and shall only transfer once for the duration of the programme placed.
The applicant may view the available programmes and their requirements by clicking the Programmes tab and search for courses by institution, using the Institutions tab.
“A prompt for the M-PESA transaction code will appear at the point of submission. Please keep the transaction code safe as it may be required again,” reads the notice.
“Caution! Do not make any payment before the applicant has been prompted or after the application deadline has passed!”
Applicants have been urged to monitor the progress of their application via the student portal once the application is made.
