KUCCPS To Open University, College Transfer Portal On Monday; How to Apply
Universities and college first-year students who will join in September can now revise their applications.
This comes after the Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) announced that the window for applying for transfers will open on Monday, July 25.
The transfer window will be open until August 24 for students who want to change universities or colleges. Students wishing to enroll in Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) colleges will also be able to do so during the transfer period.
“KUCCPS portal will open on Monday, July 25, 2022, for inter-institutional transfer applications for students placed to various universities, colleges, and TVET institutions and end on August 24, 2022,” read the KUCCPS announcement.
To apply, students must meet the qualifications and cut-off points imposed by the institutions for the specific courses they have. The cut-off points for enrolling in various courses vary depending on the level of the university.
“For a transfer application to go through, an applicant must qualify for the programs that he or she wishes to transfer to, in addition to satisfying the applicable cut-off points,” KUCCPS CEO, Agnes Wahome, told KBC.
The placement service also allows you to track the progress of your transfer application through the portal.
Applicants will be able to track the progress of their applications through the process, which includes approval from the two institutions involved.
The inter-institution transfer window allows university and college applicants to review their application results.
Most students who are unhappy with their KUCCPS placement apply for transfers.
The processing fee for applying for a transfer is Ksh1,000. The payment will be made using a pay bill number provided in the portal.
Both the receiving and releasing institutions will be given a maximum of seven days to approve or decline the transfers. After seven days, the applicant will be forced to restart the process.
