KUCCPS Resolves Glitch, Empowers Kenyan Students with Institution Transfer Freedom

Seizing New Horizons: 2022 KCSE Graduates Empowered with Inter-Institutional Transfer Option

Kenyan students, especially those who participated in the 2022 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE), were pleasantly awakened by a significant announcement. They now have the privilege to alter or transfer institutions according to their preference.

This announcement followed the opening of the portal for inter-institutional transfers by the Kenya Universities and College Placement Service.

Students can now access the portal using their index numbers to determine their placement in colleges, universities, or tertiary institutions.

This substantial announcement has enlightened many. Just last week, the Kenya Universities and College Placement Service (KUCCPS) was inaccessible due to reported glitches, causing login difficulties. Consequently, students were informed of their tertiary institution placements through SMS.

Upon investigation, the KUCCPS was granted a seven-day period to rectify the portal glitches, as mandated by the Commission on Administrative Justice, also known as the office of the Ombudsman.

In a recently published communication, Viola Ochola, the Director of Access to Information, addressed a concerning issue. She highlighted the challenges students faced while navigating the online portal to access their university placement status.

“The Commission has been made aware of reports indicating that your institution released the placement results for students who applied to join universities and colleges in Kenya for the year 2022.

However, access to such crucial information is restricted to short message service (SMS), incurring a cost of Sh25 per SMS,” Ochola stated.

Now, the glitch has been rectified, and students are encouraged to seize the opportunity for a brighter future before the deadline of August 15th.

Last week, Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu announced a significant update. He revealed a remarkable accomplishment by 285,167 students from the 2022 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) cohort. These accomplished students successfully secured positions in various universities and colleges.

These opportunities span a wide range of academic pursuits, including degree programs, diplomas, certificates, and artisan courses, across 282 distinguished training institutions.

“Out of 870,561 candidates eligible for placement to universities and colleges, a total of 285,698 students submitted applications for placement,” Machogu reported.

Interestingly, among these applicants, 140,107 students received confirmation of placement into degree programs.

Notably, 130,485 individuals were granted positions in esteemed public universities, while 9,622 students secured coveted spots within esteemed private universities.
