The Kenya Universities and Colleges Placement Service (KUCCPS) on Wednesday, May 17, opened the placement portal that will allow candidates who scored a minimum of a C+ in the 2022 KCSE results to apply for degree courses.
As part of a major reform programme in higher education, President William Ruto announced that from the financial year starting July 2023, universities will no longer access block funding.
KUCCPS has since published the cost of each degree course as submitted by all public universities for students to be aware as they choose their courses.
Upon admission, students will not receive uniform scholarships as has been the case. Funding will be based on financial capability under these three categories:
Vulnerable students (29%) will be fully sponsored and will not pay fees. They will also not get any loans. The number of students is estimated to be about 45,000 in universities and 42,000 in TVETS.
The less vulnerable students will get a 50% scholarship and receive 43% of their fees as loans. Their parents will raise the remaining 7%.
Able students will receive a maximum of 38% of the fees in the form of a scholarship and 55% in the form of loans. Their parents will raise the remaining 12%.
Here are the cluster points and the annual school fees for the Bachelor of Commerce (B.com) Degree for all universities in Kenya.
The cluster subjects for the Bachelor’s of Commerce are calculated based on the following courses:
Subject 1: English or Kiswahili
Subject 2: Mathematics
Subject 3: BIO / PHY / CHE / BIO / GSC / HAG / GEO / CRE / IRE / HRE
Subject 4: BIO / PHY / CHE / BIO / GSC / HAG / GEO / CRE / IRE / HRE / HSC / ARD / AGR / WW / MW / BC / PM / ECT / DRD / AVT / CMP / FRE / GER / ARB / KSL / MUC / BST
Note that the subject you choose can only be selected once when calculating the cluster points.
