Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) opens Portal for Inter-University Transfers


The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service on Wednesday, Jene 5th, 2024, opened its portal for Inter-Institutional Transfer applications.

KUCCPS said the deadline for the Inter-Institutional Transfer is July 4.

The process targets applicants placed in universities and colleges in the 2024/2025 placement cycle who would wish to change their institutions.

IIT also allows a change of courses, provided that the applicant meets the applicable cut-off points, subject to endorsement by the receiving institution.

To apply for an Inter-Institutional Transfer, the student should first login to the Student’s Portal

Once successfully logged in to the portal, click on the “Transfer Application” tab on the dashboard.

Enter the code of the institution and programme that you wish to transfer to.

Select the reason for which you are seeking the transfer.

Proceed to make a payment of Sh1,000 following the provided payment instructions. (Refer to the payment procedure below.)

Then submit your transfer application using the provided eCitizen Payment Reference Code.

KUCCPS noted that students can monitor the progress of their application for transfer through the Student’s Portal.

“Both the receiving and releasing institutions are required to endorse your application and you can monitor this through the portal,” KUCCPS said. 

“If the receiving institution declines to endorse the transfer application, you will be notified through the portal and advised to try a different programme in either the same institution or a different one.” 

The process will move to KUCCPS after the endorsements.

Once the transfer request has been approved by KUCCPS, the students will download and print the transfer letter and submit one copy to the institution they are transferring to so that they can issue the admission letter and other joining instructions.
