KUCCPS 3rd Revision: How To Revise, Apply For Course Choices And Transfers.

The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) has opened the system for the Third and Final Revision of Course Choices and application for placement to universities and colleges.

However, not all courses are available for this application. This is because some capacities have already been filled and do not require more students. Students are asked to select from the available courses.


The third and final revision targets:

• 2020 KCSE candidates who applied for courses but have not secured any of their choices due to competition

• Candidates with C + and above from the KCSE class of 2020 who have not yet made any application for degree or TVET courses;

Choices for placement include degree, diploma, craft and artisan courses for government sponsorship.

Deadline: July 17, 2021

KUCCPS 3rd Revision: How To Revise, Apply For Course Choices And Transfers.

How to review:

  1. Log in to the student portal using your credentials i.e. username and password.
  2. Click on the Applications tab in the upper left-hand corner to check the requirements. 

Alternatively, search for courses by their institutions by clicking on the institution tab. 

You can click on the student portal then click on programmes to find a comprehensive list of all the available diploma, certificate and artisan courses, their subject requirements and where they are offered for your guidance

Also, it is important to note that during second and subsequent revisions, the capacity diminishes hence increasing the competitiveness of the courses.

How to select courses: KUCCPS 3rd Revision

  • Scroll through the programs and either add or revise the ones selected in the course bracket. 
  • To enter your preferred courses, click on the application/ revisions tab on the site and enter the programme codes. 
  • You can pull the program codes from your selection in the courses listed.
  • Once you are done, submit the courses you have selected.

While the applicant may have met 2019 cut off points, it is highly probable that the 2020 cut-offs for the courses you applied for may be higher than the 2019 ones. 2020 cut off points will be released towards the end of July for your guidance

Placement is based on merit and is competitive. During application, applicants use 2019 cut off points to gauge the competitiveness of a course. These points however vary year to year.
