The Kenya Universities and Colleges Central Placement Service (KUCCPS) has announced that its online application system for placement of students to universities, public TVET colleges, and TTCs is now open from May 17, 2023, to June 7, 2023.
All 2022 KCSE candidates who applied for courses at school must revise their choices, and those who did not apply at school are required to submit their applications within the period.
The minimum entry requirement for Degree Programmes is a Mean Grade of C+ (plus), for Diploma Programmes is C – (minus), for Craft Certificate Courses is D (plain), and for Artisan Certificate courses is E.
Application for degree courses is open only to the KCSE examination class of 2022 for applicants with C+ and above. Form Four Leavers who sat the KCSE examination between the years 2000 and 2022 and have never been placed by KUCCPS are eligible to apply for courses at all levels except Degree. They can only apply for courses offered in the TVET colleges.
Form Four Leavers who sat for KCSE between the years 2000 and 2022 and scored C (plain) and above are eligible to apply for placement to Primary Teacher Training Colleges (TTCs).
Application to Primary TTCs is also open to Kenyans who have done other courses but wish to train to become teachers, those with foreign qualifications, and non-Kenyan citizens.
To apply, visit the KUCCPS website www.kuccps.ac.ke, click on the Student’s Portal tab, and then the Login tab.
After logging in, view the available courses, universities, and TVET colleges on the Programmes and Institutions tabs.
When you find the courses you want and qualify for, note down their programme codes and enter them in the provided form in the order of priority.
Once the system has accepted all your programme codes, submit your application and follow the payment procedure that will appear on your screen.
