KUCCPS Announces Dates for Change of courses and Universities for 2022 Students
KUCCPS Announces Dates for Change of courses and Universities for 2022 Students. By Wednesday of the next week, students must use the Kenya Central Universities and Colleges Placement Service (KUCCPS) to revise their preferences for colleges and universities or apply for placements.
In order to allow the agency to simulate, the gate, which opened on May 17, will be closed on Wednesday. Students will be assigned to programs based on their performance and the resources that universities have available.
The portal will reopen for a second revision from June 19 through June 30. The possibility to reapply will be given to those who did not get into their desired programs or colleges.
After another week of simulation, the portal will be available for the third and final revision from July 10 to July 14.
On August 9, following the last simulation, the students will be informed of their placement. 90% of students who are eligible for admission to the institution, according to KUCCPS head Dr. Agnes Mercy Wahome, apply for a spot.
155,000 of the 173,127 students who received a C+ or higher in the 2022 KCSE are anticipated to apply and accept their places, according to the organization. The application procedure has undergone a significant adjustment this year as a result of the new financing arrangements.
In the new system, the government gave up on the differentiated unit cost paradigm in favor of directly subsidizing students through a mix of loans, grants, and bursaries as opposed to paying colleges capitation fees.
All institutions taking part in centralized placement have disclosed the costs of all their programs on the KUCCPS portal so that students can understand the expenses that their families will have to bear.
Universities must draw in students. The courses must also be connected to the job market.Our ultimate objective is to fund university education 80% through loans and 20% through scholarships, according to Dr. Wahom. “We want to fund loans with additional money.
Students from less disadvantaged backgrounds would have to pay more for their university education under the new funding plan since those who are most in need will be given full government loans, bursaries, and bursaries.
The idea intends to significantly alter how the government finances higher education by removing automatic subsidies and replacing them with student loans guaranteed by a revolving fund and scholarships.
To carry out the proposal, three higher education-related organizations will collaborate. They are KUCCPS, the Higher Education Loans Council, and the University Fund.
