The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) has opened its portal to allow students selected for various colleges and universities to make inter-institution transfers.

In a notice on Wednesday, June 5, KUCCPS further disclosed that students will also be allowed to switch to courses of their choice if they meet the cut-off points.

Students who wished to make the transfers were required to log into http://students.kuccps.net.

The deadline for the application will be July 4, 2024.

“The 2024 inter-institution transfer application is now open. Applicants placed in universities and colleges last month (May 2024) who wish to change institutions should apply via http://students.kuccps.net.

The process also allows change of courses subject to applicants meeting applicable cut-off points,” KUCCPS stated.This comes after the Ministry of Education was directed to order all universities to recall admission letters issued to students yet to join in 2024 in order to amend the fee figures.

Appearing before the National Assembly Education Committee on Tuesday, June 4, Higher Education PS Dr. Beatrice Inyangala asserted that the figures in the admission letters had included the entire fee, including the government funding.

The parliamentary committee faulted the ministry for issuing the letters that had huge amounts indicated on them, which they said discouraged students from taking up courses.

Meanwhile, KUCCPS had released the university and TVET placement results for the 2023 KCSE candidates on May 21.
