Application for inter-institutional transfers now open

Monday, July 25, 2022                                                                       

The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) portal is now open to receive inter-institutional transfer applications. The application will close on August 24, 2022.

Inter-institutional transfers is the last step in the student placement process, during which  students who have secured admission in universities, colleges and TVET institutions through KUCCPS are allowed to make a final switch from one institution to another if they wish to.

The applications will be submitted online through the KUCCPS portal under the tab labelled “Transfers”.

For a transfer application to go through, an applicant must qualify for the programmes that he or she wishes to transfer to, in addition to satisfying the applicable cut-off points. Further, a transfer application must be endorsed by both the receiving and the releasing institutions, which have been enabled to do so online. Hence, students will not have to physically visit the institutions.

Applicants will be able to monitor the progress of their applications through the portal and, once approved, transfer letters will be posted on the portal for download by the applicants.
